It is the law: every year, seven Athenian youths and seven maidens are sent to Crete to be devoured by the Minotaur. The boys and girls who are going to be sacrificed have been selected. Demokritos’ daughter is one of them. 

You receive a message from Demokritos, the famous Athenian merchant. “Solve the mystery, save the girl.” The location of her confinement is secret. Can you follow the clues the gods left you to discover the hidden prison? Can you save the girl? 

The clock is ticking.

Leuk om de stad te leren kennen op dag 1. Maar wegbeschrijving niet altijd even duidelijk…

Very beautiful scenery and you get to see many wonderful places. Would recommend doing it at night. However, the instructions are wrong and confusing in several places, the English is not the best at times, and the second to last riddle is really unclear what the answer is supposed to be.
