The Hiker

R 345.00

A Hiking expedition comes to an end when the experienced leader suspiciously falls down a cliff. The main detective on the case has reason to believe there is more to this case than meets the eye. He needs your help to figure out what really happened...

Player Limits:

There are no limits to the number of people that can play. However it will become more difficult to share the evidence among larger groups so we recommend 1-8 players per case file.


It usually take players around 80-120 minutes to solve the case.

Case Contents

The Hiker is packed with realistic and detailed evidence for you to investigate including Victim report, Crime scene photos, Character photos, Case notes, Hiking brochure, Hiking Map, Google Image Map, Emails, Person of interest forms, Character interviews, Autopsy report, Hiking journal pages, and more.

All of the evidence will make you feel like a real detective analysing realistic and detailed crime scene evidence. Evidence will be packed between objective envelopes.

Missing clues and no response from their team

A crucial clue was missing from the package and it ruined the experience. I emailed the company regarding the issue and they did not reply as yet and it’s been a few weeks . The worst part is that it’s a once off experience so you can’t even reuse it or even give it to someone else .

We ordered the Hiker case for our year end function, I was worried that since we were 16 people it might be difficult to go through the evidence, and boy-oh-boy was I wrong, we all had extreme fun, everything was greatly detailed and we could not get enough of it! It took us an hour to complete, and we had a pizza after to celebrate that we CRACKED THE CASE!

From the SWANIX team, we want to thank you for all the effort put into that single envelope, with tons of memories.

Thank you.

Quality was excellent, everything was neatly packaged. Shipping was easy and fast

However the final clue was unfortunately duplicated and was revealed in the second envelope. We ended up cutting the game very short and our long planned evening with friends did not turn out memorable

We have been in contact with the team but no feedback has been received
