WE LANDED AT COMIC-CON!

It wERC Banner Lock Gameas that time of year again where Cardiff’s streets fills with the most bizarre outfits, costumes and characters, which can cause the most sane of us to do a double take. It was of course Comic-Con Cardiff, the film and comic convention.

Now, we may be Comic-Con newbies but have always had an interest of all things geek so jumped at the opportunity at having a table at this years event.Rather than just flyer and chat about our up and coming launch, we knocked up a challenge involving some Chinese puzzle style locks. We had 3 boxes to represent our 3 current game rooms; an antique box for Finding Sherlock, a mini safe for The Heist and as near as we could get to a mini sarcophagus to represent The Tomb games.

With 6 minutes on the clock players had to unlock as many boxes as they could. We had nearly 100 players take up the challenge over the weekend. From lock-picking enthusiasts to retired badge collectors, everyone had a go. To be fair to them all, these locks aren’t the easiest to open and even less so when you have 6 minutes to open all three, with an audience. Some spent the full 6 minutes fumbling away and coming away with sore fingers and while others smashed it and nailed all 3 with a casual 3 minutes to go!
