Jack Spade thought he had been dealt the right cards, but reckless gambling seems to have cost him his life. All those who sat around the poker table that night have something to hide, but can your party work out which card sharp was responsible for his murder? If you're ready to go all-in, then the nearby streets hold the clues and characters, but you'll need all your cunning, and maybe a favour or two from Lady Luck, to catch the killer. Following a sold out run of Cold War mystery game Dead Drop, London's leading immersive game designers A Door In A Wall are inviting you on another real world adventure this summer. From 26th May, Farringdon's Grand Union will play host to illicit gambling den The Underhand Club, the starting point for a high-stakes tale of double-dealing poker players and bets gone bad. Players must work in teams to collect clues, meet characters and gather evidence in the great outdoors to get what they need to solve the case and save the club. The game will run on Saturday afternoons from 26 May 2018 onwards. Dead Man's Hand is an experience designed for teams and a group size of 3-6 is suggested. See below for more FAQs. This event is a remastering of the sellout 2013 version of Dead Man's Hand, tried and tested by over 1000 players that summer. It was so well loved that we're bringing it back, better than before. The game combines the best elements of immersive theatre, escape rooms, treasure hunts, storytelling and comedy, to create a unique immersive experience packed with mystery and puns. Become the main character in this real-world adventure as you solve the case of the Dead Man's Hand. Tickets will go on sale via DesignMyNight from 12 noon on Friday 13th April 2018.
