A mysterious cabin has been found from the woods of Hämeenkyrö where Nils Idman, the former head of Tampere Compound Bank, was rumoured to spent a lot of time after been released from prison. Idman became known for the biggest fraud in the criminal history of Nordic countries. During the years 1902-1912, he embezzled as much as for one tenth of the then Grand Duchy of Finland – the amount would be tens of millions of euros in present-day.

Now you and your team has been given a one-time opportunity to explore the cabin, also known as Idman’s hideaway, in Hämeenkyrö’s forest for the last time. What did Idman do after being released from prison? What happened to the missing money? Dive into the atmospheric Idman’s hideaway and the mysterious fraud story – can you solve the mystery that has been puzzling the Finns for decades before the cabin is demolished?
Idman’s hideaway is available as a regular and as a Challenge game.

Did you know that Särkänniemi, the second largest amusement park in Finland, opened its gates for the first time almost 50 years ago and it has been elected as the best leisure center in Finland several times. No wonder – besides the amusement park, Särkänniemi features an aquarium, a planetarium, a children’s zoo, an art museum and an observation tower called Näsinneula.
But a disaster is at hand because all the amusement park rides are suddenly broken and the park should open in one hour. We cannot find the park mechanic anywhere – we’ve tried calling, emailing, texting and even yelling his name through all the park megaphones! Pirkko from the hot dog stall told that the mechanic had been acting quite weird and even skipped his daily cotton candy desserts this week.
Can you and your team find out, what has happened to the mechanic and get the rides up and running before the park opens? The carousel operator said he’d often seen the mechanic near by the Näsinneula observation tower. Maybe you could find some clues there? Hurry!
