Find out who committed the crime and why.
Totally! With live actors playing the characters from the story, your team will quickly find themselves collaborating to solve the mystery. This game will quickly captivate teams as they attempt to overcome a series of challenges by examining clues and solving riddles. Who killed Jacob Marley is a great choice for teams that need synergy or for employees who need a quick morale booster.
Who Killed Jacob Marley can be hosted for small gatherings of up to 6 people or medium-sized events of up to 60 people.
Other than an immersive plot, there are other things included such as the assistance of a dedicated event coordinator and professional actors. A Zoom link will be provided for all guests to attend the event.
