Wannabe detectives are to take part in a real life interactive murder mystery in Aberdeen city centre tomorrow.

The event – dubbed a cross between the classic board game Cluedo and Pokemon Go – is poised to take over the Granite City.

Organised by Bedfordshire company Cluedupp, it is the first time the firm has come to Aberdeen.

Teams of up to six people will race against each other to solve the murder of a notorious nightclub owner.

It involves people scouring the city centre meeting virtual witnesses via a smartphone app.

Owner of Cluedupp Tref Griffiths said he was looking forward to coming to the Granite City.

He said: “We have around 100 teams taking part at the weekend.

“The witness positions remain in secret locations, but all are within the town centre and are spread in a 15 minute walk either side of Union Street.

“We have used the history of the city, plaques, monuments and statues to set the teams challenges and get them exploring the world around them – the hope being that even if you’ve lived in Aberdeen all your life, you may see something you have not noticed before.”

Teams will set out between 10am and 1pm to solve the murder with a number of prizes up for grabs including for best fancy dressed.
