THE STORY SO FAR…
Bonker Chocolates were at one time the best known chocolate brand in the world, renowned for its originality and flavour. Originally owned by the eccentric recluse, Billy Bonkers, the firm changed hands following a rather unusual competition thirty years ago and is now managed by Freddo Pail.
Although the factory itself has continued to produce interesting and curious tastes, the worldwide fascination for chocolate is not as strong as it was before. A rethink was required. A rethink, rebrand and relaunch.
Guests have been gathering all day for a spectacular press launch of a brand new selection of unique chocolates; a range quite unlike any other! However, before the launch party can get underway, disaster strikes! Mrs Pail, mother of Freddo and one of the executives within the company, is found dead, surrounded by chocolates.
The question is… who killed her and why?
We hope you’ve got your friends assembled and ready to join in!
If you haven’t gathered a team yet, then tell your friends to grab some free chocolate samples and their exclusive passes for the press launch! They better be quick about it if they want to join you – our events sell out fast!!
What will you need on the night?
You don’t “need” anything – but you may want to have:
– a notebook and pen to hand
– some snacks and drinks
– a team to help you solve the case. Whether it’s just your family, or a group of friends on another video chat.
Remember – Zoom gets a bit cranky if you try to do too many things at once at the same time – so it’s a good idea to assemble your posse on another group ap e.g. Facebook messenger, houseparty, or whatsapp or have another member of the family signed into their zoom account separate to yours so you can discuss the case between all your friends as you as you go along.
If you think you’ll want to ask a question live – make sure you know how to work your webcam and have an operational mic.
How long will the evening last?
We’re aiming to wrap up within 2 hours. So make sure you give yourself enough time in to play and don’t have another place to be!
