The 8 Suspects

Dig into your past and uncover the buried secret

A teacher’s retirement party turns dark when she is murdered by a former student. Afraid of becoming suspects, the attendees agree to bury her body in secret. Twelve years later, her body is discovered, and a mysterious host invites the attendees back to the teacher’s mansion for an unwanted reunion with one objective – find the killer or be killed!


We are excited to present a new style of game, Real Detective Game. This is a narrative game that requires great team work like other SCRAP games, however THIS IS NOT AN ESCAPE GAME. Your team of 8 must discover one true answer through cooperative logic and deductive reasoning, rather than taking apart a room. If you like puzzles and mystery, this is a great challenge for you. If you ever wished you were Sherlock Holmes or Hercule Poirot, this is where you can put your powers of deduction to the test.

The 8 Suspects is in our new location at 1812 Polk St.

1. This is an event that requires you to use your detective’s mind and your powers of deduction to escape.
2. Strategize and cooperate with your fellow players– more heads are definitely better than one.
3. The amount of time you have to solve the puzzle might be too short. However, failure to do so is nothing to be embarrassed about. The mystery is quite tough.
4. Do not worry if you are unable to solve within the time limit. We will still allow you to leave, keeping you in the room against your will is breaking the law.
5. Detective style clothes might help to sharpen your mind. Wear comfortable clothes but refrain from wearing heels or anything else that will slow you down. A wheelchair would not be accessible due to the nature of game structure.
6. If you want training before the actual game, check out various murder mystery movies and novels
7. Please do not spoil the fun for other participants by telling them the answers to the puzzles. That is not cool.
8. The prize is the priceless moment when you finally find the solution and everything falls into place.
9. Children under 13 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, and those under 6 years of age play for free! All players under 18 will need a parent/guardian’s signature on the safety waiver in order to play. Please contact us if you need the parent waiver in advance.
