Evasion

Evasion is a high energy spy game, set in the 70s -80s time period. The game takes place outside, in Central London and lasts for two hours. Players are junior spies, on their first day as part of the spy agency C.L.A.W. and the crew are playing senior spies in C.L.A.W. or enemy spies. There are three roles listed below.

About Fire Hazard

At Fire Hazard, we make high-energy street games that are easy to play and hard to forget. We take inspiration from computer games and movies and combine it with progressive tech developed in-house to make competitive, character-led scenarios with the players at the centre. Since 2008, we have been creating acclaimed games such as Citydash, Undercover and Raiders of the Lost Archive. We have run games in museums, parks, public spaces, flash bars and deserted warehouses from Berlin to San Francisco.
