The Final Steps to Find the Treasure

It’s part two of Marlow’s Game – but are you halfway to finding the treasure? Step into Marlow’s world and unravel the clues, sniff out the red herrings, and be the first to discover Marlow’s hidden treasure. Be careful though – several treasure hunters quests have met with untimely ends. Can you solve the clues they couldn’t?

Marlow’s Game is the second mystery we have received from Dispatch. The first one lasted 7 months and Marlow’s Game is a total of 2 months, or two different boxes with a number of different clues to help you solve the mystery.

Let’s have a closer look at the clues we received in the final box.

Magnifying Glass

I wonder if this has something to do with the map? Maybe there are some hidden clues that are too small to see without a magnifying glass?


This is fun! There’s got to be some hidden clues in this map.

Dispatch by Breakout Review June 2018 – Final Thoughts

This is the second and final box of clues for Dispatch’s Marlow’s Game. I love that this mystery was shorter than the last one. It would be very easy to plan two date nights or two group dates to get together and figure this one out. Or…..you could save both boxes and open them at same time and combine the experience into one big games night with friends. How did you do with Marlow’s Game? Did you figure it out?
