SANTACORPAn immersive team game by Firecat Masquerade.  Can you outwit your supervisors to ensure the children of the world get their toys?

Sat 3rd Dec. 5pm – 7pm
The Dukebox Theater,
Waterloo Street, Hove

Check the list. Check it twice.
SantaCorp is coming to town.
HO. HO. HO.

Santacorp is an irreverent and satirical take on festive holiday-mania, coupled with a scathing takedown of corporate culture. In this immersive team game, players take the part of minimum-wage elves in the bureaucratic nightmare that is Santa’s Grotto, battling red tape and the toxic aspirations of the North Pole’s profit-obsessed Senior Board to make sure that children get toys.

In Santacorp, teams of players must work together, puzzling over the details of the Naughty and Nice Dossiers to make sure that the presents are wrapped, addressed to the right children, and delivered on time. All the while Firecat Masquerade’s crew, playing their red-and-white-clad supervisors, do their utmost to distract them from the task with the introduction of ever more byzantine regulations, branding missions, and team bonding exercises.

Live Games for 2016

Eleven Tales of Intrigue

In 2016, we’re going to be running a whole mess of different live social games – every month at the Dukebox Theater in Hove.

A lot of these are on the third Tuesday of each month with Saturday events running every four months, – but it’s worth checking the listings below to see what and when we are running. These live social games are simple to learn, suitable for ages 18+ and last 2-3 hours, with opportunities to visit the bar throughout.

This is our opportunity to try new ideas and experiment, so feel free to email with suggestions. Many of our games are designed with teams in mind – so tell your friends – but most of all – watch this space and book as soon possible!

Our first session is 19th January, where we’ll be laying out some of our plans for the year.

Toy’s Ward

Tuesday 19th July, 7pm – 10pm
The Dukebox Theater,
Waterloo Street, Hove

Stuffed patients. Real drama.

It started as just another graveyard teaching shift at the Magical Kingdom Royal Infirmary.

Then the news broke – a landslide on Candy Mountain – the Liqourice Express derailed. Critically injured toys are flooding into the severely understaffed Toys Ward in the hospital. With the senior staff unavailable, a small team of inexperienced trainee surgeons suddenly find the lives of eighty-seven crash-victims in their hands.

Toy’s Ward is a darkly humorous game of operating-room drama that juxtaposes frantic action and tough decisions with childhood whimsy. Players will need to cooperate to diagnose, triage and treat cases against a tight time limit and ever-increasing workload.


Cost:
£5 pre-booked, or £8 on the door
