Dark clouds fill the sky and every Groninger is reminded of the 1997 disaster. 

At exactly 12am on 31 August 1997, three students from the student corps slipped past the fences of Martinitoren. Not knowing that they would not make it down the stairs. At least, two of them didn't… 

What happened to the third student? that's for you to find out...

nice way of learning about the history of groningen, some "did you know"s were missing context towards the end, and could be explored with further detail. the games were largely fun and challenging, except the counting of the blue tiles. that was confusing and honestly did not provide much historical context. thank you for a nice game, we enjoyed it a lot, good luck finishing it.
