It is the 16 November 1916. You and your colleagues are employed by Mr Bartlett, renowned butchers of St Neots. Last week you all received your call up papers to join the Bedfordshire regiment and to prepare to begin military training before travelling to the Western Front in France to serve with His Majesty’s forces.
But you believe it is imperative that the good people of St Neots continue to have a good supply of meat, and without your presence, there will be an acute shortage of slaughtermen and butchers. You have therefore appealed against your conscription into the army and in consequence you have been summoned to St Neots jail, where you will be held for one night before appearing at Huntingdon County Appeal Tribunal before Lord Sandwich and Lieut. Carter representing the Military, who will consider your appeal.
But you know Lord Sandwich’s reputation as someone who will not allow people to avoid military service, as the tribunals have been ordered to be a strict as possible. Therefore, you are determined to escape.
After being locked in the cell, you and your colleagues will have 60 minutes to break out. You will have to pass through three stages: breaking out of the cell; breaking out of the cell corridor; and – finally – escaping through the main gate. These stages get progressively harder and more complex so you will need to work together, promptly, from the very moment the game starts.
This game does not require any strength or physical force. All the information you need to escape is already provided, as long as you use your eyes, ears and your brain and are able to work together as a team.
