The highlight of a 20-game New Year’s Eve trip, Lightning in a Bottle is filled with good harder-than-average puzzles, fun theatre and a pretty set.
A beautiful room that was fun to be in and had solid – albeit similarly styled – puzzles. With a relatively low difficulty level this is the perfect game for beginners to head along to..
A sprawling game with some interesting challenges but an ambiguous opening puzzle got the room off to a bad start and a series of rough-around-the-edges challenges throughout the game left us ultimately frustrated.
A round-up of the 31 rooms that we played in Hamburg in late November 2017 including a summary of which rooms to play if you don’t have time to read the individual articles.
A review of the two games at Fluchtweg. A couple of reasonable experiences which have been created with love but struggle to match up to the quality of the other games in Hamburg.
Home to the two best games I’ve played – the Ernie Hudson mysteries. They’re the real deal: immersion, exploration, theatre, puzzles, decoration, audio, flow and narrative. In every way I can image, they deliver. And the other games aren’t bad either. If you’re ever in Hamburg go and play these games. And if you ever have the chance to go to Hamburg, seize it!
The rare room where it felt like we needed plenty of help in spite of logical puzzles. Beautifully decorated, this is a game to book at the end of a day and just relax in an immersive environment.
A round up of the six games we played across Team Escape’s two sites in Hamburg. The old site is a little bit run down but has reasonable games. The new site looks a lot prettier and generally had slightly better games but a couple were affected by questionable puzzles or GMing decisions.
A review of the four games we played at Team Breakout in Hamburg. Some dubious GM-ing decisions led to a couple of the experiences being pretty poor while none of the games we played shined.
A review of the three Hidden in Hamburg games aboard the Captain San Diego. These are some of the best escape rooms I’ve played with amazing sets, great puzzles and a great sense of exploration.
