Handmade Mysteries: Lady Chastity’s Reserve

London, Aug 2015

Rated between 3.5 and 4 out of 5
This review was written more than a year after we played it. Whilst we’re confident it’s accurate, it’s short and light on details.
Toby says:

Instead of trying to escape, you’re trying to retrieve a bottle of wine; while that makes little practical difference, it’s nice to vary the genre a little. The room is one of the physically smallest I’ve done, though we had a team of five and it felt cozy but not cramped.
The puzzles are structured as a set of tests, which gives a good sense of progression and makes it easier to tell how well or otherwise you’re doing. It also means this is a fairly linear room, though I don’t remember that being a problem particularly.
The single best thing about the room was the host, who stayed firmly in character throughout, and single-handedly raised the experience from ‘decent, average’ to ‘recommended’. And of course it’s nice to come away with a bottle of wine if you win! 4 / 5
Sam says:

What makes this room is the host; it’s amazing what they’ve done with a small space (effectively creating a giant puzzle box), however that has limited the puzzle variety vs. other games. A fun night out when combined with the pub it sits in! 3.5 / 5
