Quite a hard room. Enjoyed elements of this room and the host was amazing. My only criticism, maybe between the H&S and gameplay parts before the room. Maybe walk away and come back because I had to stop myself laughing when the hosts voice suddenly changed
At the time I played this I would've rated it low, I hated tech games but I've grown to love them so would enjoy playing this game again. One flaw with the piano as I think you have to have a taste for.music or previously played an instrument to understand but other than that, a really good room
A Cut-Throat, Cut-Short Crusade
We were looking at the leader boards in disbelief because of the record-breaking times…but that would all soon make sense.
Raid Blackbeard’s cabin for his treasure, but abandon ship before it sinks.
They fit the theme nicely, but one or two were frustrating to complete.
The room looked swashbuckling enough, that’s for sure. I believed we had stepped onto a pirate galleon.
What a disappointingly short game! Where were the rest of the puzzles? The ending especially felt rushed and uninspired. We had over 20 minutes left on the clock. When you could be paying up to £25 per person, Blackbeard’s Treasure just isn’t worth the money.
Extremely well themed, I love the little pirate touches. Some simple puzzles become extremely memorable due to the theming, some more interesting puzzles.
This game had some fun puzzles but it also left us wondering what to do a lot of the time. We spent the first 15 minutes finding things but not entire sure what to do. Once in the second room we found things flowed a bit better. I would go back and play another of their games but I did feel a bit frustrated during the game sometimes when things didn't seem to be moving anywhere. That being said the physical design of the game was appealing and we did have a fun time overall 🙂
We returned to EscapeHunt as a team of two to celebrate Saint Valentine, as it seems to be a new tradition for us! Blackbeard Treasure was to the same quality level as The Last Vikings, really atmospheric with great decors and our host, Captain Michael, was on point! Similar to The Last Vikings, all our clues were given in character. "Hey matey, things tends to fall when on the sea, maybe check the floor" type of clues. Very similar to the Last Vikings, the puzzles were very hands on and only a few code locks within the room. The puzzles were of very varied difficulties, that would fit both experienced players with a 0 clues completion and new players who want to experience various types of puzzles that escape games can offer. One puzzle though was surprisingly made harder that it should have been as all the hints were already present on the piece of paper that you receive to solve it. Another great room for Liverpool! Highly recommend for anyone who hasn't tried EscapeHunt yet. Looking forward to try their 'Cowboys' room and the future Alice In Wonderland. 😮

Our least favourite game that we have played at Escape Hunt. The puzzles could have been really good but their execution was somewhat lacking. An enjoyable game overall however
