A round-up of five games I played at the Panic Room with highlights being Wizard of Oz and Revolucion Ole.
A pretty room with solid puzzles but that never really caught my imagination with its humour.
A well-made but fairly traditional escape room with an all-round solid experience.
A puzzle-packed escape room that makes no pretence to be about escaping and instead is all about trying to solve as many puzzles as possible in the hour. Prepare for frustration and fun in equal measure!
A hotel where checking in is harder but checking out is harder. The puzzles weren’t amazingly exciting but the immersion was top notch and came at you on several levels.
A room that managed to blend concepts together. Horror and humour. The beautiful and the macabre. Some interesting puzzles and decent set design added up to a game that I found surprisingly enjoyable.
A fun game with plenty of puzzles but felt a bit lacking in theming and story. A reasonable introduction for beginners but experienced players may find it a little on the easy side even with small teams.
