A review of the three games we played at Cat in the Bag. Two fun games with reasonable theming and good puzzles plus one highly original game that unfortunately we hit a lot of problems with. Not high up my list in Berlin but definitely a solid venue.
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.
A review of the two Hidden in Hamburg games on board the Rickmer Rickmers. One reasonable game and one very weak one – a far better option is to head to their other ship.
A fun set of rooms in the heart of Hamburg. We played Insomnia and Time Travel which were beautiful experiences with good puzzles and a great sense of exploration. Their third game also looked plenty of fun based on a brief walkthrough.
