Re: The Game Is Now

Oh right, so I was well off!
Cheers, my dear.
So did you enter the site and see that one of the listed suggestions is correct?
If people don't want to know...
N.B SPOILER ALERT!









The (sensible)suggestions made were: an Escape Room(well done Liberty)
A tour of the list of places discussed by Anderson and Lestrade in Seasons Greetings.
A game like Pokemon Go(personally I hope it isn't this as I am such a technophobe)
A game show.
New books.

Re: The Game Is Now

Thank you, Schmiezi! I was never going to be able to work that out by myself!

Re: The Game Is Now

Did you see my post above, dear and no, I would never have got it?!
I was quite near watching that bit on TBB, too!

Re: The Game Is Now

No, I didn't see your post!  Thank you for the update!  Rache thought of the escape room first. I just liked the idea of a Sherringford theme!

Re: The Game Is Now

I do humbly beg your pardon, Rache.

Re: The Game Is Now

Seeing how it's a London thing, it's probably the tour. Escape rooms rotate over to other locations as far as I know.

Yeah but it could originate in London.

Re: The Game Is Now

It’s official now, the game is an interactive escape room style game in London. Tickets are now on sale until January 2019 and cost £54 per person. The game lasts 90 minutes and players are teamed in groups of 4-6 people.
All in all it sounds like fun but nothing I would travel for. Might consider taking part if I’d happen to be in London during that time, otherwise I’m giving this a miss.

Re: The Game Is Now

I would want to give it a go whenever I'm back in London, but I'm not super-hyped about it. Still cool that they are doing something Sherlockian, though!

Re: The Game Is Now

I love escape rooms, so this is right up my street!  I found an article about it here: https://www.buzzfeed.com/scottybryan/sherlock-escape-the-room-london and I'm delighted that it does mention Sherrinford/TFP, but apparently it's not as dark! 

 The experience will be set in the present day, after the most recent episode, "The Final Problem", because, Moffat said, "We haven't ended Series 4 on a devastating cliffhanger."

"Normally when we do things like this, we have to try and explain where it fits into the previous episodes because Sherlock is 'dead', or he has been recalled to England, or whatever," Moffat said. "But this time Sherlock and John [Martin Freeman] are in Baker Street solving crimes. That's what they are doing."

I think it could be really, really good.  It is a little bit pricey, though, and although I'd love to go it's probably too much once I factor in travel to London.  Plus trying to find other people who want to pay too!  (Unless we ever have a forum outing there!).

Re: The Game Is Now

I'm just highly amused that once again the Fandom figured it out ahead of time.  http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png


Another small article.

At least it´s something Sherlockian. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Londoners, enjoy!

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

They did say they'd like to expand international in the future.  Something to hope for.  http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

It sounds like fun but I fear I will stay there for the rest of my life since I am not very good at solving such puzzles. I could not crack the code they had either. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png
