Game Date: 21/07/2019
Team: Amy, Dan, Stu, Sarah, Emma & Lewis
“The Mad Hatter is in trouble. Save him from the Queen of Hearts without losing your heads.
A fairly linear game that had some open moments. Puzzles were varied and consisted of logic, observation, physical, deduction, word & searching.
The puzzles were all nicely in theme, and whilst there were no logic leaps as such, some critical thinking was needed to reach the answers on some puzzles, after all, not all is as it seems in Wonderland.
There was a good selection of puzzles which really let each person in our team have something to do and solve, we all got different aspects of the game and this was wonderful to experience… (this is the 2nd time I’ve ever played in a 6)
The room was well suited to this larger group dynamic (although I could also see it being totally achievable had it just been Ian and myself)
The flow was good, and there were no real sticking points, puzzles flowed freely and smoothly.
Signposting was good when it was included but there were some spots where it was not included and thus left the players to find those critical thinking moments mentioned earlier.
A lovely, playeable game that kept our whole team thoroughly entertained for the time we were in the room.
Clues came via a voice-over in the room.
Sean was our host, and he was lovely. Welcoming and friendly. He delivered excellent hints throughout the hour
Did we escape?
Yes, in about 40 minutes.
