All’s fair in love, war and tea

aka Escape the Boston Tea Party
This episode is brought to you by our wonderful Patreons Dave Shaw and Karen Cate. Thank you!
 
Much like Nicolas Cage, we're on a mission to uncover some forgotten American treasures. But unlike Nicolas Cage, we're doing it with a little more tact and a lot less insanity.
 
Join Mike, Laura and Ben as they infiltrate the Boston Tea Party Museum to find the last remaining tea chest from the Boston Tea Party.
  • Will Mike and Ben find a tri-corner hat that actually fits?
  • How does Ben unlock the podcast's secret God-Mode?
  • Is fruit tea really tea or just an infusion?
Find out now in this Independence Day special episode!
 
If you're playing along at home, you'll need this map of the islands around Boston harbour.
 
If you want to get a hold of these episodes before the general public and get extra Discord perks, consider supporting the podcast on Patreon. You can also whisper sweet nothings to us over on Facebook and Twitter.
 
And for those who celebrate it, have a most excellent Independence Day!

Escape the Viking Funeral Boat

The episode in which Mike and Laura find themselves in the midst of a splashy splashy burney death zone, and Mike gets to fulfil a lifelong ambition.

  • Has Mike unlocked the secrets of successful communism?
  • Has Jamie finally managed to stump Laura's lightning-fast puzzling prowess?
  • And just what is a coffee knocker anyway?

Here are the details of the Viking compass and coasters, if you fancy playing along yourself.

Skål!

PS I've taken some liberties with Norse mythology for the sake of the puzzle. If you want a primer on some Norse myths, and like your tunes on the heavier side, I recommend listening to the track Emblas Saga by Brotherhood of Metal. It's pretty wild.

Is it one of Mike's tightest puzzles? Possibly not. Did he have a lot of fun doing the voices? Yes he did.

Escape The Bath Bomb Shop

Sacré bleu!

This week's episode sees Ben and Laura attempt to make an explosive exit from the smelliest of prisons - a bath bomb shop!

Did you find our cheeky little Easter egg in this episode? Let us know on Twitter or Facebook if you did!

 

And yes, Jamie does say "audio descriptions for the hard of hearing' at one point. And no, he didn't realise what he'd said until it was much, much too late.
