The Traveler - Premium Case
An unidentified traveler is found in a small town with nothing but a suitcase full of clues. The local police need your help to piece together the mystery of who this traveler was and what happened to them.
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.
How To Play
1. Go over the Case
Read through the case file and get to know the story rich characters. Each mystery is a fully immersive case file including photographs, interviews, a newspaper and other items.
2. Work through Objectives
Each case comes with a series of objectives that guide you through the story. It is your job to link the clues together and solve the crime.
3. Close the Case
After solving the final objective, you'll close the case and put the guilty person behind bars where they belong - proving once and for all that you are a genuine Sherlock Holmes!
This was my first purchase and I went straight for 5/5 difficulty. There were documents missing that was a bit off putting. The difficulty was a 2/5 seeing we solved it without most of the documents. Solved the case in 40minutes from unpacking, setting up and actually reading the first document.
Although it didn't arrive in time for Valentinesday, it wasn't too easy and a lot of fun. Took us less than an hour to solve. A duplicate foto was included in our case.
We definitely had a lot of fun playing, as it was something different.
Just found way too many questions unanswered.
Like, the traveller's died. But how was she buried there?
And the serial killer. Who killed him? Was it the traveller?
And the one white card from ares talking about artmes? whos did it belong to?
Overall, it was a well-crafted experience.
Considering to buy another case.
We thoroughly enjoyed this first try of onthecase! However, some sceptics couldn't be satisfied with how we solved the murder, even though our reasoning made perfect sense to me! Maybe I missed something, but it would have been nice to have access to a full explanation of the solution to silence the critics between us and give us peace that we indeed not just stumbled upon the solution, but were great investigators! :-)
We were 8 people playing, but I think 8 is too many, we lost some of them along the way! However, I am definitely going to try some more cases!
