Enjoy the Adventure
An ancient treasure has been said to be buried on a small island outside the coast of Turkey. Little is known about it and its existence has been heavily debated in the archeology community. Professor in archeology, Bartholomew Wilson, has always dismissed the idea as a myth. Until now.
Armed only with a mysterious letter and a cheap souvenir from his old friend Edward, Bartholomew and Oscar set out on an epic adventure. Even though they find a very helpful item along the way, adventuring is not easy and their path turns out to be full of challenges to overcome.
The Gilded Carcanet puts you in the shoes of Bartholomew as you try to piece together the answers to the many mysteries of the Aegean Sea. In each chapter, you will face a challenge to solve for our duo to continue their quest.

90-120 Minutes of Fun
Depending on many factors, but mostly on the player's experience with escape rooms this game should take around an hour and a half to be solved. Some groups will aim to complete the game without hints at their own pace, while others will prefer a fast flow using hints. Both ways are equally valid.
1-4 Players Per Group
Adventure story evolving in 10 chapters, which is perfect for small groups (2-4 players), large team building events or even solo. If you’re a bigger group, just divide the players into teams of 2-4 people and print one copy for each team. This way the teams will compete simultaneously, which will be the first ones to find The Gilded Carcanet.
Great for Teens and Adults
No matter if you are 13 or 113 years old, as long as your IQ is ready to be challenged, this is the right game for you.
Difficilty: 4.5/5 Stars

But don't worry, cause we've got your back with well-balanced hints for each challenge and a walkthrough explanation to make sure the game will run smoothly even if you get stuck.
