We played this in Edinburgh as it appeared as part of the Fringe Festival. We expected very little, given that it is a temporary attraction, but were really pleasantly surprised, and ended up having a great almost-hour of frantic fun! When we did this, it was set outdoors and was basically a game in a big box, with other elements being added in by “Agent Nathan” (who was a brilliant host!), or found in and around the area using clues discovered as we went along. Had I been told beforehand how low-tech it would be I might have given it a miss but I’m so glad I didn’t as we were thoroughly immersed and engaged for a almost the full hour! There were puzzles of all types and although most of them ended in a code to help towards disarming the EMP, everything still felt very varied. Obviously there was none of the beautiful set-dressing and theming of a static indoor escape room, but the way the outdoor space was used was pretty neat and it was great to be solving clues outside in the sunshine and amongst the curious public! It was also nice to be teamed up with another member of the public too, who proved to be a really strong puzzler and really helped us pull off this tough set of tasks with just enough time to spare! I appreciate this might not be to everyone’s taste though, but I feel like this might’ve been done this way only for the Fringe? Anyway, if you’re in Edinburgh before 28th August, I do recommend giving this a try! Very entertaining.

Reviews by escape room review sites

This is of course a game I've reviewed before: see here. The reason for the repeat review is that it's been revamped and relaunched, with most of the game updated, including the plot. I found I did in fact recognise a couple of the puzzles from my previous play-through - although just too late to be any help in solving them.

Major X takes place in a park, which gives a well-defined game space that is still much larger than any normal escape room....
