Murder on the Express Overview

Based in the glamorous Roaring Nineteen Twenties, aboard a luxurious sleeper train making the long distance journey through the heart of Europe, from Paris to Constantinople, via Vienna, Budapest and Belgrade, tragedy strikes, as the lifeless body of a Property mogul is found in one of the carriages. Travelling only with his daughter – the finger is soon pointed at a whole number of different suspects who may have benefitted from the death of Maximus Power. 

Your challenge is to find answers – and fast – before the Express reaches its final destination and passengers disembark! You and your team of expert investigators will board the Express at the first opportunity, in Belgrade – where you must interrogate the Train Guard, to learn more about each of the suspected passengers, their motives, and what weapon was used to commit the ghastly crime.

How Does it Work?

Much like other virtual activities in our portfolio, our Murder on the Express is delivered using two required devices, running in parallel, a Smart device with our App downloaded onto it, plus a webcam enabled computer for the web call platform element; this is where you’ll be able to converse with the rest of your team to piece together the evidence.

As aforementioned, the game consists of two interfaces; one of which you will have access to all of the passengers documents (the Train Guard was sensible enough to seize these before the train arrived in Belgrade). You will use this information to learn the factual circumstances of each passenger – their profession, the reason for their journey and where their destination is. The second interface is the train itself; as a team you will have access to all of the carriages, including The Dining Car and Bar, Minnies Sleeping Car, Hollies Sleeping Car, Maximus’ Carriage, the Luggage Car and the Train Guards Cabin. You will quickly need to filter out the evidence from the red-herrings to deduce who is guilty.
