Vince Baxter, New York's infamous crime boss, is on trial for the murder of Roxanne's brother, Stanley Steele and with only an hour left in the case, the prosecution really need Larry's evidence to finally convince the judge of Vince's guilt.
The only problem is that Private Investigator Larry Maxwell is unconscious in hospital, caused by a mysterious 'accident' yesterday. Only Larry knows the whereabouts of the gun that ties Vince to the murder.
Can you find the missing evidence to send Vince down?

Really well designed game, and despite our unexpectedly quick time (Venus took us a lot longer earlier that same day), we didn't feel we hadn't had value for money, great fun and very satisfying game to play. Puzzles tie in well to the theme and the narrative flows well through the game.
The original room at Guildford Escape Rooms is dramatically different to its sibling game, in tone, style and setting, but achieves a similar high level of quality. The Case of the Missing Gun is based in 1930s Prohibition, and where the venue's other game is sleek and intellectual, this one feels grittier and more physical.
