The Logic Escapes Me

- Overall rating:
Enigma Rooms (Doncaster): Mafia

A beautifully presented game with a great opening scene and fun puzzles. The challenges weren’t particularly original but they did the job. A great beginners’ room that will still entertain enthusiasts.

Enigma Rooms (Doncaster): The Heist

A weak start plagued by ambiguity meant the Heist never got going in spite of its no-padlock promise and pretty lay out.

- Overall rating:
LetsXcape (Newark): The Rig

The Rig draws history from the surrounding area, has a beautiful, industrial set and delivers challenges that capture the physicality that a story about oil drilling needed. No single thing is amazing but there is more than enough here to impress and very little where it goes wrong.

Prague Escape Review: Coderoom

A review of the two games at Coderoom – one of which was average and the other of which was significantly poorer.

Prague Escape Review: The Padlock - Cemetery

Another great experience from the team at the Padlock. A stunningly decorated game with solid puzzles and good theatrical moments. Well worth playing if you’re in Prague.

Prague Escape Review: Questerland - Star Element

Not the best game at the venue but, with some good puzzles and above average decoration, this is overall a fun experience if you can look past a couple of logic leaps and the odd tedious step.

Prague Escape Review: Riddle Twist - Xaverius

A beautiful set with plenty of puzzles and a longer than average duration which I think is as much about making sure you have a great experience in the room as it is fitting in those extra challenges.

Cryptology (Nottingham): Rameseize

A really fun game that was let down slightly by a couple of challenges near the end. Expect a big, meandering set, reasonable decoration, fun puzzles and plenty to keep you occupied for most of your hour.
