Carmen Sandiego has been spotted in Melbourne! You can hopefully assist in finally bringing this criminal mastermind to justice by teaming up with your buddies, collecting clues in a scavenger hunt around our city, and stop her before she nicks one of our finest treasures.
This exciting hunt is based around an educational computer game from the 80′s, where you had to collect clues to track down the elusive Sandiego. If you are nostalgic for this sort of stuff like I am, you’ll jump at the chance to grab your buddies and dress vintage detective style. You’ll then go interact with other mock detectives and villains, who will give you the clues you need to continue.
Tip: Go interrogate EVERYONE as to Carmen’s whereabouts, you never know who’s hiding clues. NO-one is innocent and everyone is a suspect (wink).
WHEN: Sunday, 12 August, 12:30-12:55pm sign-up
WHERE: State Library, 328 Swanston Street, Melbourne
