DESCRIPTION OF THE GAMES AVAILABLE - SILVER GAMES

THE FLANNAN LIGHTHOUSE MYSTERY

The Flannan Isle Lighthouse was manned by 3 men. In December 1900, a shift in staff was more than due, with tempest blocking in the harbor all boats. However, when the Hesperus boat reached the lighthouse, all 3 men had disappeared... You have been tasked to investigate, but strange things keep happening...

BLACK ANGUS FAERIES RACE (CU SITH)

You've been living the high life as the cherished dogs of the Queen of Elphame. However a new contestant has arrived at the Court: a Boobrie, and let's face it, these bird faeries are stealing your thunder. Only one solution to decide who will get full control of the Seelie Court: a full on, no holds barred Faeries Race.

EDINBURGH HANGOVER

You had the perfect plan: step 1 - sneak into the White Hart Inn; step 2 - steal some bread and beer; step 3 - have the biggest party possible. Except you stopped for a whisky on your way to step 2, and you've now woken up inside a barrel in a strange pantry. And you have a nasty feeling that you may be the brùnaidh's dinner.

DEACON BRODIE HEIST 

An abandoned and walled-in wizard house. A key to the safe inside that house. And a dodgy contact who promised that you could keep all the treasure you can find, if you can sneak-in, and leave the doors when you leave...

LOCH NESS DISAPPEARANCE

Multiple people have gone missing in the hamlet of Lenie. As the population accuses the Monster of the Loch, some whisper that it may be tied to something a lot more sinister. Who took the villagers, and is there any way to save them?
