Within the largest continent of the world, known as the Seven Kingdoms, there exists seven noble families. In the heart of this Kingdom lies the Iron Throne, the main source of conflict between everybody in the land. Whoever sits on the Iron Throne rules the entire continent, a position desired by many, a position in which people will go to extreme lengths to hold. News has quickly spread over the land suggesting that the new King is not the rightful heir to the throne. The discovery has caused an eruption throughout the Seven Kingdoms and a battle for the throne has broken out. You must find out who is the rightful heir to the throne. Who are you going to support? Which house are you going to fight for?

Not having seen Game of Thrones, I didn't quite 'get' the theme until someone explained it afterwards. It was OK but nothing special.

I really enjoyed this and can't wait to visit Escape Reality again, especially to do their harder rooms! The reasons I couldn't give 5 stars is because it was less atmospheric than previous rooms I've done. The story introduction is explained by the Games Master, so there's no real effort there. And the set was quite flat with textureless wall paper. The puzzles are good though. We had a great time.

The concept is fun and there are some great puzzles but it felt a little bit ambiguous at times, although this could be due to us skipping ahead and having to go back on ourselves. Some nice Easter eggs for GOT fans.

Out of the escape reality rooms we have done this was my least favourite ... I think the set just felt a bit cheaper than the others. Still not loving the iPad clue system, but with 4 people we needed less help. I think we stumbled through the final puzzle without solving it too .. oops!
