Shagg Lake is an original and good-humored murder mystery written, directed, and hosted by writer and performer John Knauss. Over the course of the evening, players can immerse themselves in the roles of recognizable characters from the summer camp slasher genre. Two sessions, August 13 and 14. August 13's will be held at My Place Ruin Bar. Each evening is limited to 20 players in a private setting, assuring plenty of interaction and the opportunity to perform for others in key moments. Unlike other murder mysteries, Shagg Lake combines role-play, traditional puzzle solving, and physical challenges within ever-changing small groups to assure genuine interactivity and engagement. Player-characters are both scripted as well as encouraged to improvise. A real passion project, Shagg Lake is the second interactive mystery scripted by John, following last year's murder mystery in space, "Hyperstranded!" Gameplay is approximately 2 hours long. Tickets are 125rmb per person and covers the game with a complimentary beer; other F&B specials available from venue. Find the August 14 listing here. Scan the QR code in the flyer for tickets.
