Brussels Escape Review: Enygma

A superficially exciting set of games that didn’t quite meet up to the expectation set by their beauty. The underlying puzzles were reasonable but a couple of questionable GM-ing decisions significantly impacted our experience.

Brussels Escape Review: Chamber Challenge

A review of the two games at Chamber Challenge in Brussels Belgium. Both were interesting rooms that were helped massively by a charismatic owner who knew a lot about the subject matter he used for the stories.

Edinburgh Escape Review: Can You Escape?

A review of Can You Escape? Edinburgh’s Operation Odyssey room, a game that was amazingly well designed with clear progress, parallel, logical puzzles, a pretty set and a fun ending.

Edinburgh Escape Review: Locked In Edinburgh

A roundup of the three games at Locked In Edinburgh. The Secret Lab is the jewel in their crown but Animal Hospital and the Distillery both deliver solid experiences too.

Edinburgh Escape Review: Escape Hour

A review of Escape Hour’s Diamond Heist, a fun filled adventure which shows that it doesn’t take high tech puzzles to make a good game.

Edinburgh Escape Review: Exit Plan

A review of the three rooms at Exit Plan in Edinburgh. The experience across the games was almost entirely consistent – good, logical puzzles, great GMing, sufficient decoration to convey the theme but no more and a basic storyline that they didn’t expand upon during the games. Choose what you’re going to do and do it well!

A Tourist's Review of Vienna Escape Rooms

A round up of all the games we played in Vienna – a great starting point for tourists to the city of what to play (Crime Runners!) and what to avoid (MindX!).

Vienna Escape Review: Sherlockd

A slightly surreal escape room just round the corner from Real Escape Wien. Well worth tacking it on to a visit there given the proximity. If you have enough for two teams then the battle mode looked particularly intriguing.

Vienna Escape Review: MindX

A venue with one game that was OK and another that was one of the very worst I’ve ever played – bad enough that it became comical. I wouldn’t recommend visiting – there are far better destinations in Vienna.
