Do students get a discount?
What if I have more or less than 6 players?
Where Dark Things Dwell supports up to 60 players at once, and requires teams of exactly 6 players to function. Due to limitations of the space, teams of more than 6 players are not possible, so if you are coming with a larger group please expect to have your group split up. If you have fewer then 6 in your group, you will be matched with other players to complete your team. If you want to be guaranteed a team with your friends, please purchase your tickets in multiples of 6.
Please arrive early, or arrive with your group – if your group arrives apart, or some arrive late, you may be placed in different teams by our staff to ensure the game begins on time.
