If you also set a star rating, the star rating won't be shown anywhere but will still be used when calculating the game's overall score on Escape The Review.
A brilliant time infused with an awful lot of fun. A wide variance of puzzles in a game of two halves. There's a lot to do but you will probably do it with a smile on your face as you do. Couple of red herrings may make you wonder but nothing should divert you. Definitely one of Clue HQ's better offerings.
Set is lovely and there are plenty of puzzles. Our GM (and her trainee) were excellent. I had a couple of niggles - there was one puzzle that clearly did not work that we wasted quite a bit of time on (to be fair, they did then allow us to finish the game after time) and the low lighting in the final room made it really difficult to actually achieve one of the tasks. But overall it's a lovely game and would definitely recommend.
The set is gorgeous and surprising, and there is a good range of puzzles.
However, this game irritated me because, with a minor tweak, our experience would have been incredible. The final room is beautiful but very very very dark, so dark that we couldn't see the padlocks and had to resort to the lights on our watches. A few other minor gripes too, but this was the biggest issue for us.
Despite this, I would definitely recommend this game because we had a great time, but I would advise a light source unless you have been loading up on the carrots!
My favourite from the Clue HQ franchise.
Free flowing, great story and immersive!
Fun pirate room with multiple rooms. Great scenery, scents and game flow.
One of our favourite rooms so far! (played 14 rooms). Much better than Clue HQ's other offerings. Sturdy construction, outstanding theming and great story. Nothing particularly, individually challenging- just so much content to get through! Our only criticism was the lighting levels caused us issues at more than one point throughout the game - including the finale in which we had to have a clue (which we try to avoid) as to where the item(s) even was that had already been revealed as it was too dark for us to see.
