Description:  The Emerald Flame is a narrative tabletop puzzle game told in three parts. Commissioned by an organization shrouded in mystery, players take the role of a historical expert embarking on a quest to piece together the recipe for a fabled elixir by investigating maps, drawings, alchemical diagrams, and mysterious artifacts. Combining history, hand-drawn illustration, vibrant characters, and original puzzles, The Emerald Flame will challenge and engage players of all experience levels. Each installment takes approximately 1.5-3 hours to complete, for a recommended group size of 1-4 people.

From the creator of the “insidiously clever” puzzle adventure The Tale of Ord, The Emerald Flame is a new epic for fans of escape rooms, game nights, and “not just games but…experiences.”


What is The Emerald Flame? 

Hours of puzzles with an interwoven narrative packed into a beautifully illustrated tabletop game. 

Like a blend of escape rooms, board games, and interactive fiction, The Emerald Flame tells an exciting story over three distinct episodes, each packed with puzzles of varying difficulty designed to challenge and engage players of all experience levels.

Commissioned by the Koschei Historical Society, you will take on the role of a historical expert and embark on a quest to piece together a recipe for a transformative elixir by deciphering messages, interpreting alchemical diagrams, and manipulating mysterious artifacts. 

Play cooperatively as a group or go on a solo adventure! Each of the 3 chapters takes about 2-3 hours to solve, totaling 6-9 hours of gameplay.
