The starring role of this irresistible detective game, set in Ostend and brimming with mysteries and secrets, is played by James Ensor. Ostend was this famous artist’s home base for almost his entire life. It was here, in the ‘queen of seaside resorts’, that he painted many of the masterpieces in his oeuvre. One his most famous works is The Seven Deadly Sins. Unfortunately, Ostend is about to be hit by a disaster: the works were stolen by an evil gangster, who was recently assassinated. Hunting for clues around the convivial seawall, the Mercator museum ship, the Venetian Galleries and many more of Ostend’s landmarks, the participants will have to solve this terrible crime and return the original Seven Deadly Sins to the city.
