The story

Rumoured to be dead, Captain Bartholomew and his crew have been captured alive by the East India Trading Company and are being held in the brig of a ship moored at Salisbury Docks.

With the King’s men an hour away, and nobody watching Bartholomew’s treasure (held at The Plume of Feathers Inn) an ideal opportunity awaits to open the chests and liberate the loot before anyone figures out what’s happened. 

You will have the use of our beautiful pirate tavern here at Live Escape Rooms Salisbury to see if you can solve your way through three pirate chests. 

This time you will be up against the clock but all in one spot, focussed on the puzzles in front of you at the captain’s table. 

Hidden mechanisms, cool props, plenty of puzzles, plus you can purchase a glass of ale, mead, rum, wine or processco to sip for while you play.  

(This game is for those who love puzzles  – so may not be suitable for players under 14 unless accompanied by an adult).

The Story

Captain Barthlomew’s crew are shackled and locked in The Brig of a galleon ship on Salisbury Docks. The perfect opportunity to liberate their loot being held in The Plume of Feathers Inn.

Can Bartholomew’s crew break out of The Brig to reclaim their treasure, or will the looters break into the chests while their rivals are still stuck in their cells?

It’s a race against the death knell as in 60 minutes the executioner will hang you all!

How it works

Up to 5 crew mates are locked into The Brig of the galleon ship. At the same time, up to 6 looters are playing at the table while drinking at the Plume of Feathers Inn and trying to loot the treasure belonging to the crew locked in The Brig.

Both bands of buccaneers have an hour to solve different sets of puzzles and beat the other crew. 

If the pirates in The Brig escape before the looters get to the treasure, they win! If the looters steal the treasure before the pirates escape their cells, they win!

This is the ultimate versus challenge and everyone can see each other’s progress through the game as you are all in the same space.
