Land-ho! Another pirate-themed room! One of my favourites.
As Captain of the Mariposa, your crew have formed a mutiny and locked you in the ship’s prison. Break out and search Tortuga Island for Derdrake’s treasure to break a curse that will turn you into a spectre in an hour’s time. I really like this creative plot, especially the mutiny.
A selection of fun, pirate-y and, overall, not very difficult puzzles, making the room more than suitable for beginners. A hint from the tablet literally gave us the answer to one we were struggling with, which I disliked.
All the sights and sounds of the sea (and sand) from a pirate’s perspective. Tortuga Island was perhaps a bit bare, but I did get desert island vibes.
A victory was clinched with some time to spare.
A very well themed room split into several sections. the first part of the game was great with some really strong puzzles that weren't too challenging. That being said, the last part of Tortuga Pirates was a massive let down. we actually escaped still with padlocks locked. and when we asked the GM to explain, they responded that its fine, its not really needed. no explanation.
This would be a great game for anyone that's never done an escape room before or have done maybe just 1 or 2 but its definitely not one for seasoned players.
worth sticking your head in the door to see the scenery and theming but that is as far as i would recommend.
Lovely people here at Escape Reality! Our hosts remembered us from the previous game and were really enthusiastic about our escape time.
The game itself starts really strongly - we really enjoyed the first section. The puzzles are all logical and make a lot of sense and there is a good mix of searching and solving. We enjoyed one of the final puzzles particularly. A fun room with a strong theme!
We earned ourselves a bit of reputation over this game.
We failed To do the first puzzle but somehow managed to make it over a third of the way through with very little movement. We had got the host worried they had forgotten something and were just about to call and ask for assistance when we discovered our mistake. The games hosts could not believe how far we had made it. Lol.
