CluedUpp Games - The Constanta Ripper

"Think you have what it takes to catch a serial killer? CluedUpp is an exciting, outdoor detective adventure - and it’s coming to Constanta on Saturday the 23rd October 2021."

I've seen in July the ad for this game on Facebook and was intrigued by it, I visited their website and decided with my husband, Catalin that we wanted to attend. I bought the ticket, about 179 lei/ 36 euro for one team ticket. The team could be 2 to 6 people.

One/ Two weeks before of the game we received an email with some information about the game. The starting point, in Piata Ovidiu and some other details. We downloaded the CluedUpp app and created accounts for the game. I added the voucher number to the game and everything was set.

The day of the game finally arrived. We could have started the game anytime between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. The game ended at 5 p.m. We started at about 10:15. We chose a team name, The Wabits, comes from the Rabbits but with the first letter changed to W because our name is Epuras, iepuras means little rabbit. And we made a selfie of our team. 

We went to the starting location in Ovidiu Square and started the game. The game was a map of Constanta with little squares with question marks or people and question marks in different places around the map. We had to go over to each place and when we entered an area close to it, a pop-up would appear with a short description of the place/ people and a riddle to be answered. We enjoyed answering all the riddles, we knew the answers to most of them but there were a few that escaped our smarts. If you didn't answer correctly to a riddle you incurred a time penalty, sometimes you could try again, sometimes you had a limited number of tries. You could interrogate each person on the map, there were 3 questions available. What we didn't know was that there was a limited number of question you could ask per game, only 30, so we should have been more sparse with questioning the suspects, ask less questions more wisely because we finished the questions pretty fast and we couldn't ask more. 

This is how the map looked like at the beginning of the game.

We walked around old part of Constanta a lot, made some photos too. We made about 15000 steps/ 15 km that day. 



At noon we took a break from the game, because you could pause the game. And we went to lunch in the old port, we ate pizza at On Plonje Restaurant. After that we went to the same place where we paused the game and started the game again. 

This is how part of the map looked like at the end of the game. We had visited all the marks on the map and questioned some of the people there.
After finishing visiting all the marks, we sat on a bench and discussed everything we discovered from the witnesses and suspects, who had alibi, who didn't and what was the weapon used for the killings. (at the start of the game a list of possible suspect weapons was given)  We deliberated and had a verdict. And we were right! We finished the game in 3 hours: 26 minutes. We were on #6 when we finished.


You can see photos with the participant teams on the Facebook Page of the Event



If you liked the game description a new game will take place in Constanta in July 9th 2022, see the game website.



As a conclusion we liked the game, it was entertaining but it kept us looking to our phones and not so much at the surroundings. Maybe because we knew all the places the marks were positioned on and because we were in a hurry. Maybe for somebody who doesn't know Constanta and plays the game at a slower pace it's more interesting. It would have helped if the game was translated to include Romanian landmarks in the game, like Hotel Intim instead of Hotel Astor (just an example, Hotel Astor is not in the game). In 2018 we participated to a architectural hunt that was more enticing, that made us look around and search for architectural details and elements. It was a beautiful game. See more photos at the link.


So, anyway, we liked the game, it was good for exercise as we walked a lot, 15 km in a day. We used our brains to crack the riddles and to find the killer. We felt smart at the end of the day, not the winners of any category (fastest team/ best dressed team/ best team picture / best team name / best little detectives), but smart. Thanks to the organizers for a nice experience!

The winners were:
Fastest Team - Cuba Libre
Best Dressed Team - Dark Shadows Team
Best Team Picture - The Black Moustaches
Best Team Name - The Misfits
Best Little Detectives - Patrula Politistilor

Selectie de Calendare de Advent 2021

Calendarul Advent este un calendar special ce marcheaza prin mici cadouri cele 24 de zile pana la Craciun. Fiecare zi are propria usita/ sertaras care se deschide si dezvaluie o mica surpriza. In general incep de la cifra 1 / 1 Decembrie. Ele au fost initial folosite de luteranii germani inca din secolele XIX-XX.  Eu le-am descoperit relativ recent, am vazut ca mai multe fete din online, printre care o retin pe Stefana Teodoroiu aveau diferite calendare advent de la branduri de beauty, in general cu produse cosmetice. Am fost curioasa si anul acesta in sfarsit mi-am cumparat si eu cateva, cel cu ciocolata m&m si cel cu ceai.😊 Intentionez sa le deschid zi cu zi, in fiecare zi cate o usita corespunzatoare datei. Ma tenta si sa cumpar unul din lemn, gol si sa il umplu eu cu bomboane, dar deocamdata nu am ales aceasta varianta. Va arat cateva optiuni la sfarsitul articolului, daca sunteti interesati.  In continuare o selectie de calendare de advent care mi-au placut in mod deosebit.

Persoane pe care recomand sa le urmariti 2021

De cand cu facebook si instagram s-a schimbat mult metoda de "urmarire" a persoanelor interesante online. Nu prea mai citim bloguri, site-uri insa urmarim postarile si povestile zilnice pe care le publica diverse persoane. Acum catva timp, in 2018 mai precis actualizam o lista cu persoane care ma inspira  https://www.urbnstyle.ro/2014/04/inspiration.html  de atunci nu am mai revenit acestui subiect, am zis sa adun acum, in 2021 o lista de persoane interesante de urmarit. Unele persoane au ramas in aceasta lista de atunci, insa au aparut mai multe persoane noi.  Le-am impartit pe categorii: Ilustratoare, Prezentatoare TV, Jurnaliste, Influencers, Stiliste, Nutritie, Educatie, Fashionistas, Scriitoare in total 21 pers. Am selectat doar inspiratie din Romania sau apropiere (Moldova) adica doar inspiratie in limba romana. Daca aveti nevoie de inspiratie intr-un anumit domeniu sunt sanse sa gasiti aici cateva persoane de urmarit. Lista nu este completa, e de munca sa o completez.

Body Shaping Lingerie

AD: I f you are in the process of loosing weight a body shaping lingerie could be of help. This type of lingerie accentuates your curves, smooths the lines of your body into your best shape. Whether you want it to flatten your tummy, tighten in your waist, slim down your thighs or lift your buttocks this special kind of lingerie can help. You can buy one that takes care of the lower part of your body or one that is a full body shaper. You can think that this kind of lingerie is restraining and it’s good only for special occasions, but it’s not the case anymore.

Light up your world

AD: Christmas is coming and you can consider buying more lights to make your home even more beautiful for the season. You can buy them now as some of them can be put no matter the season.  When I was little we had a natural Christmas tree every season, we would decorate it with different Christmas globes and decorations and… lights. I had a box full of lights, they were star water lily flower like lights and I like them very much. But they had a problem if any of the lights would have an imperfect contact the whole string wouldn’t work, so my father had to check them every year to make sure it was working. Now, with modern lights I didn’t encounter this problem, thanks God! photo source This starfish light can go on your wall no matter the season. It's solar energy powered, so charges during the day and lights up at night time.  Available in different lengths.  Starfish LED Solar White String Light Waterproof Light for Outdoor Yards Decoration , $14,13 For a marine look, you can ha
