You may book for any number of people from 1 to 8 at a time.

Gather at the feet of the Sphinx to unwrap an ancient mummy…and find the murderer in your midst.


The year is 1924. As dusk falls, you wander past the Great Pyramid of Giza, the cooling air whispering across your skin, crisp sand crunching beneath your feet.

You enter a recently excavated temple that lies at the base of the Sphinx. It is here that you expect to meet your host for the evening, the renowned archaeologist, Professor Tilmuch.

Lamps and candles fill the room, causing light and shadows to dance across the gauzy material walls. Professor Tilmuch has invited you to a mummy un-wrapping party. They’re the latest craze among Cairo society’s elite.

On stage, the sarcophagus, within which lies the linen-swathed remains of Queen Nitocris, last Pharaoh of the Sixth Dynasty.

In front of you, seated around a table of glittering glassware and gleaming silver platters, are your dining companions.

Taking a deep breath, you join them…
