A venue and pair of games that looked utterly stunning but were sadly letdown by poor signposting in the puzzles that meant the game lacked flow.
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.
A review of two games in Den Bosch in the Netherlands. One room was badly affected by darkness while the other was OK but with an incredibly frustrating final puzzle.
A review of two escape rooms in Gent, Brussels which were so mainstream compared to nearby Locked Gent that I find it hard to recommend them unless you’re playing several games.
A review of the immersive theatre production, Prison Escape. Not an escape room but absolutely worth attending.
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.
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.
A review of the two games we played at The Circle in Veenendaal in the Netherlands. Very promising games but let down with weaker gameplay.
Great games focusing on immersion and making use of strong in-character introductions to get the experiences off to a fantastic start. Two of their games were good but Ramkraak is a truly great game with an amazing intro, solid puzzles, a neat mechanic and an awesome ending. Well worth a detour.
A wrap up of all the games we played in Prague – ten companies, 13 venues, 25 games. In summary, an excellent city to visit both as a tourist and as an escaper with quality games in a variety of interesting themes and particularly impressive for beautiful games.
