The Headlands Gamble

First Person Travel

The Headlands Gamble is an extraordinary weekend trip for two with a thrilling storyline woven through it: part game, part theater, part all-inclusive vacation. Two or four partners play the detectives in an immersive mystery story set amidst some of the most beautiful locations in the North Bay.

The players drive from location to location in a custom car, meeting characters, unearthing clues and following leads while experiencing all that Marin County has to offer. Restaurants, hotels, bars and other activities are seamlessly woven into the narrative.

An interactive tablet dashboard digitally augments the experience, guiding the players to make the most of their weekend and together lead the story to its climactic conclusion. Content is unlocked based on which clues the players discover, and what topics they choose to broach with the actors. The conclusion to the story depends on the perceptiveness and curiosity of the players over their weekend.
