A portable installation designed to mix physical movement with teamwork, communication and problem-solving.
One physical space, four big buttons and codes to be cracked! The game uses four custom-made buttons, designed so that the game can fit into any environment.
Players must use clues scattered around the room to uncover a sequence of button presses, and run around to bash the buttons in the right order.
You may have to flip through maps, pick apart circuit diagrams or rifle through a book of spy photos, but one thing’s for certain: the best codebreakers work as a team!
"Codex Bash was one of the most popular parts of our event. Simple to learn, difficult to master, and a brilliant experience for players and spectators alike.
Watching strangers bond through frantic dashing and button bashing was an amazing way of showing how great gaming is at bringing people together."
