A game in which TIME is of the essence!

Less than two hours for your team clue hunt game? Have a very large group (40 or more players)? Then the Race against TIME is the perfect game for you.

A young quantum physicist went missing five years ago. Now he's turned up and is in talks with a foreign power about his scientific discoveries. The British Intelligence Services need to understand what he found and how it works! Can your team find the clues, solve the puzzle and race to get to the TIME portal before any other teams? There are a few variants of this game, some involving NUMBERS and MATHS, and some which are a bit easier. Talk to us about the options!
