With social distancing still in place and many people unable to see friends and family in person, the BHF have teamed up with Escape Live to make the virtual game available between 26th June and 18th September.
Up to six players can play from a single location or from various locations around the world. Family friendly, the game can be paused or returned to at any time. For every game purchased, 50% of the profit will be donated to the BHF.
If you are feeling quizzed-out this could be the perfect alternative. Working in a team of between two and six people, you’re tasked with finding the clues to uncover the identity of the Rogue Agent, collate the evidence against him and advise the agency of his whereabouts.
During this coronavirus crisis, the BHF has been working tirelessly to support people with heart and circulatory diseases, by providing vital information via its dedicated Heart Helpline and an online coronavirus hub.
But with the pandemic costing the charity around £10 million a month, it is now urging the public to #BackTheBHF and help the millions of people in the UK living with heart and circulatory diseases including coronary heart disease, stroke and vascular dementia. Research suggests that people with these conditions are also at higher risk of complications from Covid-19.
More people than ever now need us to continue to provide vital support and fund life saving research. Without support from you, the BHF can’t be there in their time of need.
Sammi Skelding, Partnership Programme lead at the BHF, said: “More people than ever need the British Heart Foundation’s support and information to help manage their health conditions. Without support from you, the BHF can’t be there in their time of need. Let’s beat heartbreak together – purchase your game today by visiting www.bhf.org.uk/escapelive”
Jas Sodhi, Managing Director of Escape Live adds: “Our Escape Room experiences are the perfect way to spend time with family and friends. We are delighted to be able to support the BHF and help them continue raising vital funds.”

The game is suitable for anyone aged 10 and over. Whether you are looking for something to do with friends, as part of a virtual hen or stag do, as a team building activity or something to keep older children amused it’s a great way to create memories and spend time together.
How to play

About Rogue Agent
Whilst saving the world from all manner of terrorists and threats, a Rogue MI5 Agent has been growing his personal art collection and not entirely legitimately. The unknown agent has been stealing art and sculptures from across the globe.MI5 is onto him though, but no one within the agency can be trusted.
As the newest recruits to the agency, it falls on you to uncover the identity of the Rogue Agent, collate the evidence against him and advise the agency of his whereabouts. In order to do this, you will be given access to the Government’s secret online portal which you must use to complete the case.
So how can you get involved and help to raise funds?
The game costs £20 and 50% of the net profit will go towards the vital work of the BHF.
