What Alice Found

Lewis Carroll wrote the sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, called Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There in 1871. It is set a few months after the first book. This time Alice climbs through a mirror to enter a fantasy world.

The book includes Alice’s meeting with The Red Queen. She also meets Humpty Dumpty and Tweedledum and Tweedledee, who recite the poem The Walrus and the Carpenter.

While Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland incorporated  cards, Through the Looking-Glass concerns Alice’s journey across a chess board. Throughout her expedition Alice is confronted by things that are not as they seem. In the world on the other side of the mirror’s reflection there are many mirror themes, including opposites, time running backwards, and so on.

Murder Mystery at UCL

Posted on Updated on

 

 

UCL Museums at Night event

The Game was Afoot.

UCL Museums had suffered from a spate of foul actions of a criminal nature. Learning and Access Officer, Dean Veall, warned that the fiends responsible were using the Museums most precious collections for their foul deeds.

Invitation To Events immediately dispatched a team of trusted investigators to help solve the crime. On arrival they discovered that a murder had been committed!

The next few hours were spent combing the museums and searching for clues. This event was part murder mystery and part treasure hunt. Teams had to visit various museums, rooms and areas to find the suspects and answer questions about the collections. Unlike Treasure hunts in London events, where the clues can be cryptic or puzzles, the clues were all straight questions. However, the answers to the clues led to a large puzzle that revealed the murder weapon.

Among the places visited were:-

Grant Museum of Zoology

Petrie Museum

UCL Art Museum

Jeremy Bentham Auto-Icon

The team succeeded in correctly spotting the murderer but not in determining  the murder weapon. The prize for best costume of the night went to a well deserving Scoobey Doo.

Saving the world!

Posted on Updated on

On Wednesday two teams were deployed at Sherlock Unlock. They each had 60 minutes to complete their missions.

One team had to stop a devastating biological attack. Professor Nemrov had created a virus so contagious that a single infected victim could easily start a global pandemic and a  Zombie apocalypse.

While they were working on that, my team had to discover where the time traveler Walter Spiegel had disappeared to and to stop a tear in the fabric of time. Life on Earth hung in the balance!

Both teams were able to solve the puzzles and escape the rooms within 60 minutes thus saving life as we know it.

A few days later our skills were called on again.

I and my team of Secret Agents were deployed on Mission DASH 008. This time our task was to destroy a diabolical criminal organization by uncovering clues and solving puzzles. Although we didn’t win, we did complete the mission.
