Netherlands Escape Review: Escape Room Eindhoven

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.

- Overall rating:
Mostly Harmless (London): Phobos 17

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.

- Overall rating:
AI Escape (London): Project Ðelta

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!

Netherlands Escape Review: Riddle Room (Best)

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.

Netherlands Escape Review: Kamer 237 (Volkel)

A review of one of the most talked-about rooms in the Netherlands. There were a surprising number of weak puzzles but that was more than made up for by a great introduction and an amazing set.
