Sounds great. Danish murder mysteries are very popular over here right now!

That sounds so exciting!!!

This sounds like lots of fun!

A little teaser:

The Jolly Brolly Mystery is a Murder Mystery with a Scandinavian twist. A class conflict turns into a family drama, involving forbidden love, jealousy and lastly murder. - And it’s all happening in Bristol!

Hope we win:)

auuuu, so exciting! sounds really interesting and fun! umbrella murders are such a evergreens...

Wow, sounds like a very fun way to explore the city :)

And a way to make the depressing gray rainy days fun.

Can you make it in Copenhagen too? It is a very rainy city as well so it could use some Jolly Brollies ;)

hey congratulations.

This sounds very interesting and suitable for a city like Bristol and like wise copenhagen.

look forward to seeing how this progresses.

We really want to do this project and think it would be as fun for us, as for the participants

This does sound like a lot of fun. I'd just be a little worried that it is dependent on rain - although saying that it did bucket it down quite regularly last summer!

I'd be worried that having an umbrella might limit the amount of people who can engage with it as it's not something you could discover off the cuff and interact with.. I assume you need to book/pay for a brolly? Love that it would promote walking around different parts of the city, getting involved in the narrative and solving a murder mystery though... who doesn't like whodunnits?!

brilliant idea!

Be a detective for a short time and meanwhile explore the city. The fun and interactive way of a sight seeing bus.

overplayed don't think smart umbrella is gonna make it something more exciting

Playable city should be more than just playing existing games in the city...or at least aim for something more exciting.

not good enough.

We expect the clue-box to attract a lot of interest and curiosity from random passers-by, who can then participate online. Also we will release the umbrellas in several go's, so the rumour has time to spread. - If you show up at a release event you can get an umbrella for free.

loving the umbrellas, it always rains in bristol anyway...

Cool concept! But doesn't the umbrella have to be powered to transmit it's location/ position? How long does the battery last?

When you find the Clue box you also have a chance of recharging your umbrella..

Well thought and pedagogical in its approach. Fun and knowledge sharing at the same time. Really like it and can't wait to try it!

A brilliant idea
As a tourist it will be a lovely way to explore Bristol, or another city, for that matter. You get to see the city in a completely different way and from a different angle.

I like the physical interaction with having to use the umbrellas on rainy days, and also that the murder mystery will structure the experience of the town, both for locals an tourists. Great idea!

What a great idea, I love it!!!!

Sounds like great fun!

Holy Molly - Jolly Brolly! I would love to explore Bristol on a rainy day and solve a murder mystery! I also like the fact that it is an extended player experience and not just a single event at a certain time and place. I guess that this would also make the players (tourists as well as Bristol citizens) curious to explore new places/areas in the city they are living in. What a great idea! :)

It sounds like a really fun way to explore a city. I would love to try it. Great idea!

Sounds great - I like that you are allowing people to submit more missions for other people too.

An amazing idea! Something that both residents and visitors to the city could enjoy - while exploring the city. Have fun, learn, AND be happy in the rain - couldn't be better!

Sounds great better than most of the other ideas

Some things just don't quite make sense to me about this project.
Since the project is supposed to be played in the rain does that mean that it will be played only when it rains?
What's with the rest of the time?And what if it rains just a few days in the whole month or what if it rains late at night or early mornings?
Isn't it kind of insecure to make piece dependent on the weather?
And if it will be played when its not raining then I dont quite understand the umbrellas?
And also I dont really see people wanting to "explore" the city for hours while its raining and get totally soaked, and get all of their things wet?
It really doesn't seem fun at all.
Doesn't everyone wants to get off of the streets and hide somewhere where its dry when its raining?
