About



The Lost Journal of Flintlock Flynn is an adventure game like no other. Combining the mystery and excitement of an escape room alongside the fun of board games and the immersion of RPGs.

Within the box are 6 separate mailings each unlocking a chapter of the unfolding story. These could be played across an evening with adults, but really gets special when you play with children, they are designed so that they can be mailed directly to the child, and are produced at such high quality that they'll believe they truly are directing a team of treasure hunters halfway across the world to find lost treasure.  


How the game plays

The game starts with our "seed" mailing. This is designed to be hidden away for the unsuspecting player to find and start their adventure. Carefully decoding the messages provided leads to an seemingly missed clue which needs to be checked out, a quick email to "The League of Treasure Hunters" and your family is off on the whirlwind of an adventure. 

Once they've decoded the messages in that first mailing and emailed "League of Treasure Hunters" that precipitates the first mailing to be released. This could just be handed to the players but for added immersion it can be posted, so they'll receive a real letter through the mail! This letter in turn leads to the next until the full story of treasure hunting, puzzles, betrayal and gold is uncovered!! 

Each new package brings new mysterious items and propels the narrative forward. You'll be thrown into a thrilling story from the golden age of piracy, needing to use codes, websites, language, lateral thinking and deduction in order to help the League reach the lost treasure, and of course at the end of the journey you'll receive your very own chest filled with gems and gold as proof of your amazing accomplishments! 

All the reading material in the adventure is designed to be easily understandable for a reading age of around seven to eight years old, but we’ve thrown in some more complex words and language as a learning opportunity... if there’s a word they don’t know, encourage them to look it up with you and learn a little more about life on the high seas! The adventure is designed to appeal to people of all ages however, and there is nothing stopping you reading to a younger adventurer, or enjoying the story over a glass of wine with friends one evening. 

 Whats included in the box (prototype shown)

The game is packed full of puzzles and mysteries, spelling out a tale of adventure and betrayal. One player acts as the GM of the experience and can drip feed the next mailing as the earlier one is completed. The game has been written to be compelling to people of all ages. In our playtests often the parents can't resist skipping ahead to later mailings themselves as they get caught up in the story!


Package Breakdown - Spoilers!

Your box will come with 6 packages sealed up when you open it, read below to get a rough idea of what each one will contain!


"Seed" Mailing: An ancient letter, some old sheet music, a large ancient map and a compass (designed to be hidden away for the players to stumble upon)


Mailing 1: A letter from "The League of Treasure Hunters" congratulating the explorers on their astonishing discovery, a newsletter with strange symbols on certain elements which may hold hidden meaning, an archaeology report detailing the discoveries of the team and of course the games namesake, the Lost Journal itself! 


Mailing 2:  A follow up letter, another archaeology report and newsletter and some crucially important missing pages from the journal, that provide new clues for the treasure hunters. 


Mailing 3: Another letter, archaeology report and newsletter, this time with some tragic news of betrayal for our treasure hunters. Alongside this are character bios of all the people on the island, only a razor sharp mind can work out who is the traitor. 


Mailing 4: A letter thanking the adventurers for finding out the baddies identity, a few of their belongings and a cryptic piece of music. Lateral thinking will be needed to open the last key clue surrounding the treasures location. 


Mailing 5: Success! A treasure chest of coins and gems will arrive alongside a letter thanking the adventurer for their help, and suggesting that perhaps they'll be asked to help on future adventures.

Risks and challenges

We have backed many many kickstarters and are aware of the pitfalls many face. We have a great working relationship with Longpack, the producer of our game and all the design work for the core game is complete. We intend to use Gamerati for shipping who are well regarded in terms of logistics.
