clueQuest: Revenge Of The Sheep (giveaway!)

April 27, 2016

WITH MY INGLOURIOUS BAAAAAH-STERDS AT CLUEQUEST: REVENGE OF THE SHEEP 

It's official - should the end be nigh, it's neither the Rick Grimes nor the Batmans (Batmen?) of the world who will swoop in to save your sorry souls. The real heroes, my friends, are the curious breed of hardcore social-media addicts you call bloggers - not just because our savvy for all things tech and trending will come in handy for breaking codes, although you can be damn sure that any live updates on the apocalypse will be extensively shared on Snapchat - but because, as Professor Blacksheep will attest when we foiled his dastardly plans with 12 minutes to spare, bloggers do it better. Can I get a 'Squad, squad'?



Escape Games have taken the world by storm, swarming the 'Top Things To Do in This City' lists across Tripadvisor like a proverbial pandemic. Perhaps it is our primal human nature to break the bonds of modern day inertia. Maybe we're subconsciously training our survival skills for when the worst should happen (if a nuclear fallout takes out the internet, I'll have to describe to everyone what I had for lunch. Oh, the horror). Or simply, everybody loves escape games because they get to flex their cerebral chops. clueQuest, London's top 'Live Escape Experience' brand - ranked #1 on Tripadvisor for Fun & Games - hears and delivers: with their latest and third installment of their wildly popular Live Escape Game rooms: 'Revenge Of The Sheep'.


It's all fun and games until someone feels sheep-ish...


             
ONE HOUR. A TEAM OF SIX. 
A LOT OF SHEEP THRILLS. 

WHO 
The Squad: myself, Amanda of Rhyme and Ribbons, Emma of Bloomzy, Katy of Little Miss Katy, Erin of Island Bell and Natasha of Graphique Fantastique.

WHAT  
The Sheep Mutator - that dastardly weapon of Professor Blacksheep -cunningly concealed among the desolate and post-epidemic streets of London. An immersive, fully interactive 'alternate London' filled with mysterious clues hidden among elaborate props - some of them with as innocuous as everyday items, some of them impressive tools utilising technology created especially for Revenge Of The Sheep.

HOW
As soon as we accepted the 60 minute challenge our team were herded into a room and locked in with no escape but to solve our way out. You can't ram your way out here - only brainpower will aid your escape. Armed with nary but a clipboard and pen for taking notes and clues and a walkie talkie to communicate with mission control it was then a race against time to find and deactivate the Sheep Mutator. We escaped with our hides intact (with 12 minutes to spare!) thanks to teamwork, common sense, a keen eye for detail, and (without giving too much away) decent aim - when we had to square off against an army of wooly bullies! 

WHY
Families, friends, and colleagues alike flock to clueQuest for a fun day out, an alternative to party games, and team building exercises for a chance to save the world with their inner detective.You get to harness the power of 3, or more - your team can have up to 5 players - to outsmart yourself out of an immersive alternate reality where teamwork, logic, and a sharp mind are all the superpowers you need. It's all incredibly mentally challenging and extremely rewarding especially if you succeed in your mission despite the ominous clock that counts down your remaining time down to the last second!

WHERE
Go down the rabbit, or rather sheep hole at clueQuest:
