I had learned about the murder mystery treasure hunt events organised by A Door in a Wall since before leaving London in 2011 and stayed signed on to their email newsletter so even while living in Asia I vaguely followed the events going on and am still looking forward to participating to one of them.
The live gaming events have been attracting a loyal following of participants, enough for Tom Williams to make this a full time activity and recently the first regular monthly event, called A Veiled Threat.
I met with Tom in London and we had a great conversation about his background and inspiration for the game events he creates for A Door in a Wall. We also talk about arts, Warhammer miniature games, Escape rooms and more. There are a few odd noises in this recording, sorry about that. I hope you still enjoy!
