A round-up of all the games that Brighton has to offer which include some high quality, immersive games with an emphasis on actor-like GMs.
By far my favourite of Escape Game Brighton’s three games with prettier decoration, solid puzzles and a couple of nice tricks. I’d still recommend the other venues in Brighton instead though.
Puzzles that are mostly reasonable but nothing exciting, decoration that is lacklustre and tired and a shared GM. If you’ve not played every other game in Brighton, then I’d recommend heading to one of the other venues instead.
A weak set, a non-existent story, a shared GM, and the puzzles that, at best, were OK. There are plenty of good games in Brighton, but this isn’t one of them.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience with humour, strong characters, fun sci-fi decoration and good puzzles. A room that manages to appeal to enthusiasts with stronger-than-average puzzles and first-timers with calm-inducing humour, plus a cluing system that feel like it’s just part of the experience.
A wonderful homage to a part of Brighton culture that I knew little about. Decoration-wise it’s impressive and there’s a decent story as well. A great option if you’re looking plenty of varied challenges.
From the grand entrance right to the finish, a visually impressive game with chunky, thematic decoration. Expect a few weak puzzles but not enough to spoil the experience.
A collection of repeat-as-often-as-you-want games that challenge mentally and physically. A really fun experience that I think will become more prevalent over time.
Thoughts on one future direction of the ER industry where teams play many entirely separate individual games as part of an overall experience.
An absolute joy to play. Interesting theme, beautiful execution, good, logical puzzles and plenty of humour thrown in. I don’t know what Pressure Point’s magic is, but they make games that just seem to flow really well and where you come out on a high.
