A tough review due to an amazing concept, good themeing with it being based on the Kingsman films, being true to the film and a clever idea for the end... But massively let down by the GM and execution by purposely trying to make the initial start difficult. The GM has an air of arrogance and seemed to undermine before the game even started... My biggest gripe was being told we wouldn't have to search for anything and yet at a dead end at the beginning, was told to search for something we needed. And then informed us he wouldn't be available for 5-10 minutes, luckily we had found a flow after the hard start. Such a shame that poor GM and needlessly difficult elements let down what could be a great room.

Sometimes the hardest games to review are those that impress in some ways but then badly disappoint in others. That's the case with Templars, which seemed to have all the elements to be an exceptionally good game - but then let itself down with deeply frustrating gameplay.
Located in a warehouse in an industrial estate outside Okehampton, entering the venue achieves that magic transition from a mundane exterior to a hidden world that promises adventure. Our gamemaster appeared in costume and in...
Templars possibly ranks as the hardest room we've ever done. We've seen other teams getting decent times so it obviously just didn't click for us. Give it a try if you want a challenge
