value for moneyclevergreat hosting
Like all of the other rooms at the venue, decoration is sparse but effective, this game starts with a lot of searching including one type of hiding place I have never encountered before!  Your task is to find and retrieve 5 diamonds before the Mr Big comes back (he should be away for 60 minutes conveniently enough).  Progress is mostly linear in nature but that’s not to say there are some clever puzzles along the way.  Once again an incredibly fun way to spend an hour whether you are a beginner or an experienced player.  Our GM was Adam who expertly nudged back on course and was great throughout.

A well enough put together room with enthusiastic hosts, but for anyone who’s used to fully immersive high-tech rooms it’ll feel a bit lacking - there are simply no β€˜wow’ moments, just a succession of puzzles to give you clues to unlock stuff, when you’ve solved all the puzzles you’re done. My friend whose first room it was loved it though.
