Wednesday, Sept. 26th & Wednesday, Oct. 17th - Somewhere in the Wild West
The West can be a Wild and dangerous place - snake oil salesmen and outlaws, cowboys and vaqueros, madams, gunslingers, Indians, pilgrims and a no-nonsense sheriff. Pack your saddlebags and join us in another reality where you assume a role in the Wild West, and play for keeps. 

You'll become the hero of a thrilling western storyline that encourages self-expression and collaboration through an inspiring game experience. Sense the twists and turns of the plot and work with, or against, your friends to come out on top. No longer are you a passive watcher, you take the lead and not only make your own decisions, but act on them in real life.

Enjoy drinks and snacks served by The Game Parlour throughout the game, and stay for the after-party to talk over the plot's hidden gems and most memorable moments. (The ticket price covers admission to the event and participation in the game's storyline. Beverages, snacks, and meals are not included.)

Event Storyline 
Wild West. The town of Bonanza out in the Rocky Mountains of Montana state. For many years, the biggest trouble here were cowboy fights after having too much whiskey in a saloon. But it looks like the entire State’s attention is now riveted to Bonanza.

The body of Lucia Della Èsterolla has just been found in the best and most expensive room of the saloon in the second floor. Is Black Bill, who has held up the Billings-Helena train, really hiding in Bonanza?

In this game you will unmask Black Bill’s Gang and the singer’s murderer, find out the secrets of a colt with a black mark and a child left at a church doorstep, cook and use the miraculous Panacea, get hold of a unique map by goodwill or brute force, and, surely, become the best sharpshooter of the Wild West!

Wednesday, Oct. 10th - The Séance
Join Questoria for a hosting of our popular game storyline, The Séance. Shake off your work week and mark your achievements, all while celebrating the joy of meeting up with old friends and new acquaintances. 

Picture yourself co-starring in a movie... You have the backstory to explain how you ended up here, but where you will go now is entirely up to you! But unlike acting in a movie, you don’t parrot lines from someone else’s screenplay—here you write your own story. Every hero has their own goals… And it’s up to you to decide how they’ll be achieved— whether through charm, force or clever scheming.

Enjoy drinks and snacks served by The Game Parlour throughout the game, and stay for the after-party to talk over the plot's hidden gems and most memorable moments. (The ticket price covers admission to the event and participation in the game's storyline. Beverages, snacks, and meals are not included.)

Event Storyline 
A week ago, Lord Cornwall, a famous industrialist and partner in the East-India Trade Company, was murdered. His body was found underneath his window as if he had leaped out to his death — however, Scotland Yard detectives are certain that it was pre-meditated foul play. Three suspects were arrested, but there isn’t enough evidence to convict even one — some key pieces of the story are missing. These key pieces are what Detective Miles hopes to get from the murdered Lord via a séance with a psychic medium.
