Take part in a high-energy codebreaking adventure across four of the University of Cambridge Museums!
Crack the code
The Cambridge Codebreaking Society have recently come into the possession of a curious set of letters. The letters, exchanged between a cryptographer and linguist, span decades. The last references a closely-held secret, but it’s written in an unbreakable code. The code refers to a series of artefacts spread out across space and time. The Society has called upon its finest minds to help them try to crack the code before the answers are lost forever.
The Last Secret is presented by the University of Cambridge Museums in partnership with Fire Hazard Games. With a live leaderboard, cryptic clues, surprise challenges and roaming characters your team will have to be curious, cooperative and clever to come out on top.
Designed for adults (18+).
No prior knowledge of codebreaking is required.
You'll need to be comfortable moving around at walking pace for a couple of hours. You can join individually, or as part of a team, and be as casual or as competitive as you like.
The game can be made accessible with some small adjustments and we're very happy to help — please let us know upon booking.
Outwit Your Opponents
You'll have competition from up to twenty other teams of Codebreakers at the same time. There are bonus points for the first team to crack each clue — and, more importantly, not everybody gets every clue at the same time. Keep an eye out. Follow each other. Lay false trails. Stay alert. With a live leaderboard on your phone, you'll know exactly who to watch out for.
Think Quickly, Move Slowly
Cambridge Codebreakers is based on the hit Citydash game in London — but this time there'll be nobody chasing you (and no running in the museum!). We'll keep the pressure up with twists & turns, surprise clues and timed challenges, but you won't need your running shoes for this one.
Bring a (charged!) smartphone with a data plan.
We'll send you a link to set up your team, along with full details of where to meet and what to expect!
Organising a group? We make it easy — once you have your first ticket we'll send you a special link so your friends can buy their own and join you.
