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.
A round up of the best escape rooms in the Scottish capital based on a couple of trips we made in February of 2017.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Our favourite venue in Vienna. Three games that told an engaging story, puzzles that were both logical and accessible and GMs who knew how to do their job well meant that this was a great place to spend an evening. If you’re only going to visit one venue in the city then this is the one.
An escape venue that focuses on the experience more than the puzzles, Exithink produced a pair of beautiful rooms that felt in need of more puzzles. Dr Jones’ Office still felt like an escape room but Orpheum Theatre was more of a scare attraction with a few puzzles thrown in.
