Hamburg Escape Rooms: Skurrilum

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!

Hamburg Escape Rooms: EscapeDiem

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.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Team Escape

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.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Team Breakout

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.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Big Break

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.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Escape Venture

A review of the Doc Eisenbarth and Artefacts in this Hamburg franchise venue. Both were reasonable games but neither were particularly exciting.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Twisted Rooms

A brief review of the Twisted Rooms venue which closed down not long after we visited. It’s not gone forever though – it’s reopening later this year nearby.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Adventure Team

A high quality venue where we played two quite different games. If you’re a fan of more traditional escape rooms then They Stole a Million will probably appeal but if you want something a big higher tech then Countdown to Meltdown is the better choice. Or just play both!
