Immaterium delivers a gritty but pretty set with fun, physical puzzles, although be prepared for that lack of user feedback to potentially leave you frustrated. I’d recommend it to anyone who’s in Nottingham, but especially Warhammer or sci-fi fans or those who like physical challenges.
Putting it simply, this is the best heist game I’ve played. This was an hour of adrenaline, packed full of as many puzzles as you could physically lay your hands on and topped off with a challenging and exciting finale. If you’re close to Nottingham, this game should be on your itinerary.
A great game and one that I’d strongly encourage enthusiasts to play. It hits way more often than it misses and, even where it misses, I appreciated what it was trying to do. It’s packed full of puzzles, you’ll get close to your full hour of game time, and there’s an adrenaline rush from start to finish.
A review of Sherlock: The Game is Now, one of the most expensive but also one of the most impressive games in London. If you’re a fan of the show, it’s well worth a visit and even if you’re not, it’s certainly something to consider if the price point doesn’t put you off.
A very belated review of the game that’s been voted the world’s best on two separate occasions, and with good reason. It mixed high-quality puzzles, impressive set decoration and a sense of adventure to leave every other escape room trailing in its wake.
Intriguing narrative, great puzzles, an amazing set and a sense of flow that meant we were always looking forward made this one of the best games I’ve played. It might not be a well-known game in Europe but it deserves to be!
A round-up of the Dutch and Belgian escape room scenes based on four trips that I’ve made over the last few years. If you’re looking for the best games in the world, then you could certainly do a lot worse!
A round-up of the games we’ve played in the southeast of the Netherlands including Catch Me If You Can, Project Ramkraak and, of course, the perennial favourite, Kamer 237.
A round-up of a variety of the games we played in our trips to the Netherlands include the homage to La Casa de Papel, Bella Ciao from Escape Room Katwijk, the fantastic, award-winning DarkPark games and the Execution in Rijswijk.
