You live in Milan Italy, in the year 1495. The name of the Master Leonardo Da Vinci is recognised all around the world. Hundreds of students follow him, hoping that the grand inventor will take them on as a student. There are so many enthusiastic followers who want to be at his side, Da Vinci decides the only way to narrow the field is to build a room specifically designed to select only the best candidates from these eager followers.

Down in London with work so decided to book an escape room. Finding the venue was the first challenge! Haha.

A beautiful set and some interesting electronics and mechanisms helped but some poor GMing and lack of player feedback took the shine off this game.
We are in Milan, Italy (really Whitechapel, London) to prove to Leonardo Da Vinci that we are good enough to be his students.
