Budapest Escape Review: Scavenger

Three disappointing games from a much-lauded venue in the centre of Budapest. In a city where games often don’t have as much attention to detail in the set design, perhaps this stood out but the puzzles weren’t as interesting and while the GMing in the room was OK, the general organisation outside the room was disappointing.

Budapest Escape Review: Gozsdu Mission

A good quality venue in the heart of Budapest. The White Room is famous amongst enthusiasts, and deservedly so, but the Maffia Room was good fun too.

A Tourist's trip to Glasgow

A round-up of a couple of trips through Glasgow. Mostly poor experiences with the one highlight being Escape the Past at Pollok House, a room that would stand up reasonably well even if it weren’t in a heritage site.

Escape Asylum (Leicester): Hostage

A game with a few too many flaws for me to recommend a visit. There’s enough that first-timers will have fun, but an underwhelming theme, a lack of direction at key points and a finale that includes a bizarre set of puzzles added up to a distinctly sub-par experience.

Torrenigma (Torre del Mar, Spain): El Amuleto Arcano/The Arcane Amulet

In a quiet seaside town you might expect a relatively basic game, but what we found was a strong room that would stand up well in any market. It’s got plenty of interesting and logical puzzles, is well decorated and weaves in a story that you can choose to take or leave.

- Overall rating:
Popup Escapes (London): The Case of the Dynamo Diamonds

A very different game from your average experience. It’s not particularly challenging and, as a popup, doesn’t have the beautiful, solid finish of a permanent game. What it does have is fun – managing to be easily accessible for first-timers while still having enough that’s different from your average escape room to engage enthusiasts.

A Tourist's Review of Warsaw Escape Rooms

A round-up of the 37 (yes thirty seven) rooms that we played in Warsaw in August 2017 including a summary of which rooms to play if you don’t have time to read the individual articles.

Warsaw Escape Review: Amazeing Escape

A couple of great games to finish our trip and great options if you’re heading out to Modlin airport to return home. Head Hunter had some great touches while The Island was a more traditional room but with some great sets.
