A wrap up of all the games we played in Prague – ten companies, 13 venues, 25 games. In summary, an excellent city to visit both as a tourist and as an escaper with quality games in a variety of interesting themes and particularly impressive for beautiful games.
A good game, with enjoyable and harder-than-average puzzles. Its location in the heart of the city, the impressive introduction, the thematic venue and a visually impressive but short finale makes it a good option, especially if you want to justify your visit as “tourism”.
A review of the two games at Coderoom – one of which was average and the other of which was significantly poorer.
Another great experience from the team at the Padlock. A stunningly decorated game with solid puzzles and good theatrical moments. Well worth playing if you’re in Prague.
Not the best game at the venue but, with some good puzzles and above average decoration, this is overall a fun experience if you can look past a couple of logic leaps and the odd tedious step.
A beautiful set with plenty of puzzles and a longer than average duration which I think is as much about making sure you have a great experience in the room as it is fitting in those extra challenges.
A review of two games. One that looked impressive but where we never really felt the game flowed and a second that was very different from your average game – thirty minutes long in a very unusual space and where you play on your own!
A room that throws you off-balance from the moment you enter then delivers one of the most endearing, quirky experiences I’ve had the good fortune to play. If you’re looking for something in Prague that’s fun and very different from your normal room then this is the game you want to play.
Two games that were fun in very different ways. The first was an old school game that just seemed to flow well while the second was a beautiful game with cool theatre. The common element was a focus on telling a story within the room which both games achieved admirably.
A fantastic space game that begins before you even enter the spaceship, packs in puzzles that are fun and on theme, offers cool decoration and finishes off the experience with a fun finale. If you’re in Prague, this should be on your list of games to play.
