Recommendations for the best games in the French capital, highlighting the games which excel with immersion, decoration and puzzles including recommendations for both families and scare enthusiasts.
A round-up of the second half of my Paris trip, including trips to One Hour, Hell Out, Pandora et Associés, Border Live, Deep Inside, You Have Sixty Minutes, Quest Factory. Plenty of reasons to visit the French capital with a full wrap up to come soon.
A round-up of two days of games in the French capital including all four games at Crack the Egg, “Alice” at Phobia, “Far West”, “Cinema” and “The Metro” at The Game, “The Deveaux Family” at Panik Rooms, “Titanic” at Majestic and “Chemical Hallucinations” at The One Escape.
An utterly beguiling pair of games that individually are well worth a visit but together are must plays in Paris. The immersion throughout is a particular highlight but there are fun puzzles, plenty of memorable moments and good set decoration.
A beautiful imagining of a fairytale world, Fairytale Regulations presents scene upon scene of high quality visuals combined with fun gameplay that engaged the whole team. One of my favourite Parisian games and worthy of its Top Escape Room Project Award.
A game that lives on its start, finish and scares. It begins with a bang and finishes off in equally impressive style. In between, your heart will spend most of its time pounding in your chest. The puzzles, in contrast, were a bit of a let down so make sure to go in with your eyes open if you book.
Two very different games. Swamp of Sorrows was an impressive experience that transported us to a new world with varied puzzles and an interesting finale. Ring of Protection didn’t engage me with its repeated use of missions over puzzles and a generally less impressive set.
One of the best games I’ve experienced. Over three hours of gorgeous set, interesting puzzles and an overarching narrative that flows through from their opening game. Go to Athens and play this game.
A three-hour game that feels so different to your average experience and not just because of the ample space and time. With a strong narrative via video segment and plenty of enjoyable puzzles, it’s a game that you should definitely book if you head to Athens.
A beautiful game with a magnificent sense of discovery and some cool centrepieces. If you’re the sort of player that wants clear instructions on how to proceed, then I think you’ll be frustrated but, if you like to explore and hypotheses, then I think this game will be right up your street.
