Swallows and Amazons Online Escape Room

A free to play game, in association with Stockton Library Services.

Part of the "Novels that shaped our world" BBC initiative.

Made with funding from Arts Council England.

Join Captain John on his voyage as he

explores mysterious lands and faces fearsome foes.

We recommend having a pen and paper handy.

The game can be played on a smartphone, tablet or laptop,

but we recommend using a laptop for the best experience.

If you are playing online with people in another house, we recommend one person shares their screen, so that everyone has the same view of the puzzles.

Don't forget that each puzzle has hints available - don't be afraid to use them!

Day One

You may find it helpful to write out the wordsearch on a piece of paper, and cross out the letters as you find them.

Alternatively, we recommend taking a photograph of the puzzle with a smartphone, and using the software on your phone to mark through the clues.

Words can go in any direction apart from up.
