The scenario – Nova Patria, a recently recognised independent country is attending the 2028 Sports Championships in Los Angeles. Unbelievably, they astound the watching world and blast their way to the top of the medal table! Rumours of foul play abound, but all tests come back negative, the super-athletes of Nova Patria are in the clear. You receive an anonymous message; you are to be at the drug testing lab immediately after the closing ceremony. The very future of sports is in peril and only you are able to save the championships from ending in disaster, scandal and corruption. You have one hour!
Padlox welcomes groups of two to six players, whether families, friends, neighbours or strangers. There is no age limit, but smaller children might struggle a bit with some puzzles, so it may be better for older children. The hosts at Padlox are always available should you need a small hint to help you along your way. There is a discount for teams of two and Padlox will try to be flexible should your group number slightly more than six. Leith enjoys free car parking and is well served by buses from the city centre and further beyond.
