Intermediate game in Brno for adults

Mystery of the Old Town Hall

Crooked towers, dishonest councillors, the Brno dragon... That you know all that? Good, because we won't tell those legends. Join us for a tour at the Old Town Hall around the lesser-known corners and, finally, a bird's eye view of Brno!

We will guide you through the unusual corners of this building and you will have the opportunity to get to know it in a truly unusual way. For example, you will find the oldest living room in the town hall and find out who worked there. Count how many stairs you have to climb to get a panoramic view of the whole of Brno. With a hidden puzzle, of course.

The outdoor (though in this case more indoor) puzzlehunt The Mystery of the Old Town Hall uses the genius loci of the very heart of the city of Brno, besides having fun in the form of seven difficult puzzles, you will also learn interesting historical information.

Take your friends, family or teammates and come and discover the secrets of the Old Town Hall!

Adventní kalendář 2023 bude!

Často v poslední době slýcháme jednu opakující se otázku. Pokud bychom parafrázovali slavný český film, tak by vypadala asi takto: “Nezlobte se, že vás zase obtěžujeme, ale my jsme se nezeptali, jestli máte zase kalendář. Máte na letošek adventní kalendář? A mohli bychom ho vidět?”

Konec Výletů za šiframi

Jak jsme již delší dobu avizovali, všechny tři hry z knížky Výlety za šiframi, jsou nyní ukončené. Proč se tak stalo a co dělat, pokud knihu máte a hry jste nestihli, se dočtete níže. Rozhodně nemusíte zoufat, od jara (pokud vše půjde dobře) bychom dvě z her chtěli spustit znovu a samostatně. Ke hrám se tedy konečně dostanou i ti, co knihu nemají!

Přejeme krásné letní dny! Ať už máte odpočinek za sebou, zrovna balíte nebo pilně pracujete a schováváte si volno na poslední týden letních prázdnin. K bazénu nebo oceánu, na chatu, pod stan nebo do přímořského letoviska… posíláme jednu letní cestovatelskou šifru. Protože šifrování není nikdy dost.
