Placentia Plunder

Placentia Plunder


UPDATE: Placentia Plunder returns again for the Summer 2024! For a limited time only, players can enter the turn of the century St Luke’s church in search of their fortune. Can your team solve a combination of returning puzzles and new ones inspired by the spirit of the season, and ring the church bell before your time is up? This event is also wheelchair accessible.

500 years ago, the waters of Placentia Bay were fished by the Basque people. Among them were Domingo and Itziar Ibarra, who earned a small fortune harvesting fish and whale oil from the waters of the North Atlantic before settling on the shores of Placentia permanently.

As the peoples of the area transitioned from Basque to French to English, the Imbarra family fortune swelled in size. Passed down along the female line, it was doubled by the pirate Cici Lapointe, and thereafter became known as the Placentia Plunder. And you could inherit it all.

You have just received an invitation to Placentia from Lark Nelson, the last direct descendent of the Ibarra family line. With no heir, he has invited distant relatives, including you, to earn the right to inherit his vast fortune. You have one hour to explore St Luke’s church and ring the bell in the bell tower to prove yourself worthy of the Placentia Plunder.
