Who’s it for?
Would you like to discover the city of Périgueux in an original, independent kind of way? Maybe you know Périgueux like the back of your hand, and love solving riddles? Perhaps you’re celebrating a birthday, having a hen or bachelor party, your cousins or your grandchildren are coming to stay with you for a few days, and you want to have a good time together? Then this game is for you
Help Commissioner Durand solve the most notorious investigation in the history of the Dordogne Resistance: who stole the millions from the Neuvic train? Inspired by a real event in the Resistance during the Second World War, you’ll have to use your imagination to track down the mysterious thief !
How does it work?
With the Périgueux adventure game you’ll explore the historic center of Périgueux: it’ll take a minimum of one and a half hours, but there’s no maximum duration ! Want to have a coffee, stop off at a restaurant or pop into a shop during your investigation? No problem, just pick up where you left off and go at your own pace! You can play at midday or midnight!
No schedules, no appointments, no reservations! You’re totally in control of the game and of your own time: cool !
Primarily designed for adults, it can be played alone, as a couple, as a family with children or between friends, and it’s suitable for up to 10 people.
Better than an app !
After endless confinements, you’ve probably had enough of virtual tours and screens ! With this Périgueux-based adventure game, you have real, tangible objects in your hands, envelopes to unseal, and a decoder to help you crack open the clues.
For many people a smartphone app is a cold experience; you’ll have none of that here and everyone can play and participate !
What’s exactly in the box?
The idea behind this game is to go a little further than traditional games, which are often aimed solely at children.
With this box game, you get real outdoor entertainment, an adventure to share and play together for all ages.
Each box contains: a road book to follow in the thief’s footsteps; a map to help you find your way around; a decoder to crack those pesky little clues; a special pen; 12 postcards in the emblematic colours of Périgueux to help you solve the riddles (which you can later write on and send off to your friends and family), and last but not least, a Périgueux tote bag to conveniently keep everything together whilst you play at being a detective!
