Play the Gunpowder Plot Game
It's explosive!
Some games just go with a bang

If you'd sooner have your fireworks and bangers on screen than in the garden, here's a great new game for you to play.

All you have to do is find 6 barrels, in the right order, and your safe ... if not, you're toast!


 The game takes you into a cellar.

 In there you'll find 36 barrels, you'll need to find six special ones among them.

 There's gunpowder in all six barrels, and a booby trap in one of them.

 If you find the booby trap before you've found the other five loaded barrels, things could get a bit hot!

Play the Plot!  (full version)

The Silent Plot
The sound effects have been removed, to make it faster to download and play,ideal for slow modem connections..

Play the Silent Plot (no sound effects)


Every barrel has a number, from 1 to 36.

Each time you follow a barrel link, you'll be given your current score, and number of tries used.

So keep track of which barrel you've just hit on, and make a note of it if it improves your score.

It won't save you from getting blown to bits, but then, it wouldn't be fun if it did!
