The Story

YOU must solve a fictitious crime set in 1922, just after WWI and around 100 years after Raffles arrived in Singapore.

Sir Stamford Raffles arrived in Singapore 100 years ago and unveiled his development plan, the “Raffles Town Plan.

The Governor of the Straits Settlements wanted to rally Singapore around this significant anniversary. He invited the important figures of the time. The following day, he discovered that the “Raffles Town Plan” had been stolen. He summoned you and requested that you retrieve the plan.

He hands you a journal with a list of suspects to look into.

The scenario is fictitious, but it is based on historical events.

 The investigation consists of two steps.

  • Collecting clues: To unlock clues in Chinatown, Thian Hock Keng Temple, Nagore Durgha, and other important historical landmarks around Telok Ayer, teams must answer questions, solve puzzles and riddles, and take photos and videos.
  • Analyzing the evidence to identify the perpetrator: The difficulty of identifying the culprit is determined by the number of clues discovered by each team, emphasising the significance of the first step.
