Recommendations for the best games in the French capital, highlighting the games which excel with immersion, decoration and puzzles including recommendations for both families and scare enthusiasts.
A round-up of the second half of my Paris trip, including trips to One Hour, Hell Out, Pandora et Associés, Border Live, Deep Inside, You Have Sixty Minutes, Quest Factory. Plenty of reasons to visit the French capital with a full wrap up to come soon.
A round-up of two days of games in the French capital including all four games at Crack the Egg, “Alice” at Phobia, “Far West”, “Cinema” and “The Metro” at The Game, “The Deveaux Family” at Panik Rooms, “Titanic” at Majestic and “Chemical Hallucinations” at The One Escape.
An utterly beguiling pair of games that individually are well worth a visit but together are must plays in Paris. The immersion throughout is a particular highlight but there are fun puzzles, plenty of memorable moments and good set decoration.
A beautiful imagining of a fairytale world, Fairytale Regulations presents scene upon scene of high quality visuals combined with fun gameplay that engaged the whole team. One of my favourite Parisian games and worthy of its Top Escape Room Project Award.
A beautiful game with a magnificent sense of discovery and some cool centrepieces. If you’re the sort of player that wants clear instructions on how to proceed, then I think you’ll be frustrated but, if you like to explore and hypotheses, then I think this game will be right up your street.
A beautiful game with moments of theatre, a real sense of journey and a bunch of fun puzzles thrown in. If you’re ever in Paris, it should be high up your to-do list.
A review of the three games at Lock Academy, Paris. Revolt was my favourite, with an unusual theme, fun puzzles and an experience that improved with each step forward. LA Confidential had a relatively mundane start but improved significantly and had one of the most stressful, frantic (and enjoyable!) finishes I’ve experienced in a room. Tres Cher Lock is a game that’s worth playing, but it’s merely good in comparison to the other two – a strong start in what on the face of it looked to be a pretty ordinary room wasn’t quite matched by the end sequence.
A gritty, humorous, enjoyable space game that I’d thoroughly recommend to visitors to Paris. It may not have the most polished decoration, but it delivers consistently good puzzles, story and set – a rare combination.
Two scary games – The Departed is a good, creepy experience which you should only avoid if you hate scariness. Cannibal is an amazing scare experience that you should only do if you actively enjoyed scary games.
