The Secrets of Athens, a new game from the Playscape series for children in primary school, is a breathtaking adventure created to explore and learn the secrets of Ancient Greece, simultaneously testing the reasoning speed and courage of all players.

The cards
The game contains 60 cards, each one with a riddle and a clue to discover in order to identify the next card: you can immerse yourself in an incredible adventure while consolidating the history contents of primary school. Carefully read clues hidden in the cards, solve the puzzles and pass all the tests: the Professor needs your help!

The start
It is an honor for all of us members of the archaeological society of the city of Athens, to host the “Professor”, an internationally renowned scholar.
Tomorrow, in his honor, the statue of the so-called “Twin of Calamide” found a few weeks ago in the seabed of the Gulf of Euboea will be presented to the citizens.
We look forward to seeing you.

Decripticon
To discover the clues, the children must use the included special magic lens.  By placing the decripticon on the back of some special cards, helpful clues for continuing the mission will appear.

PLAYSCAPE
The series PLAYSCAPE is comprised of games and books inspired by the Escape Room model that take some principles and apply them to different school subjects.  The materials in the series offer stimulating adventures that involve solving codes, puzzles, brain teasers, and riddles linked to specific educational content. In a completely original and fun way, children and young people will thus be able to consolidate their learning and enhance their logical skills, lateral thinking and reasoning at the same time.
