TimeTrap Escape Rooms (Reading): Station X

A room that immerses you in the 1940s from the moment you arrive right through to the end of the game. It’s a beautiful experience with fun puzzles, interesting interactions, a little bit of humour and some bonus content to keep enthusiasts busy.

Incarcerated (Swindon): Agenda 21

A clear step up from their earlier games, we enjoyed the unusual introduction and while the theming wasn’t amazing, there was enough flow to ensure we enjoyed our experience.

Co-Decode (Swindon): Sub Terra

A fantastic game bringing together great puzzles, impressive engineering, a beautiful set and an interesting storyline. Well worth travelling to Swindon for.

- Overall rating:
Lucardo Rawtenstall - University of Magic: Dragon's Heart.

The team at Rawtenstall continue to impress. A well delivered story, a fantastic introduction, a great entrance to the game, solid puzzles and plenty of theatre throughout the experience meant we left the game buzzing.

Escape Quest (Macclesfield): The 13th Element

A strong game that will appeal to people who like varied, good quality puzzles, especially if they like working in parallel with their team. It’s a very good example of a science/laboratory-based game with a different feel to most experiences of that type.

- Overall rating:
Time Race (Bury): The Invitation

Much improved on the first version of the Invitation but still not as good as most of the games in the surrounding area. Beginners will have fun but I think enthusiasts will leave feeling shortchanged.
