A round-up of the best European games as voted by enthusiasts from around the world.
A venue and pair of games that looked utterly stunning but were sadly letdown by poor signposting in the puzzles that meant the game lacked flow.
A venue that I wouldn’t recommend visiting in spite of some unusual games. One was truly terrible, one very poor and the third, an otherwise intriguing game that was ruined by a pointless automated clue system.
An utterly endearing retro sci-fi game with a good set, fun GM-ing and solid puzzles. Fun for enthusiasts and a great introduction for first timers.
This month’s news from the London immersive gaming scene. Get it while it’s hot!
Another unusual escape room from a company that just doesn’t do mainstream games. Lots of story and hard puzzles – probably too much for some people! Oh, and did I mention that it’s 100 minutes!
A review of two games in Den Bosch in the Netherlands. One room was badly affected by darkness while the other was OK but with an incredibly frustrating final puzzle.
A review of two escape rooms in Gent, Brussels which were so mainstream compared to nearby Locked Gent that I find it hard to recommend them unless you’re playing several games.
A review of the immersive theatre production, Prison Escape. Not an escape room but absolutely worth attending.
A review of two games hidden out in the forest near Best, the Netherlands. One game was distinctly mediocre apart from the decoration but the Conductor is a beautiful game that recreates the feel of a British station in a way that would be impressive in the UK let alone overseas and still manages to pack in good puzzles.
