Was ok

Joe Brown experienced says:
Great set, great tech really worth a play if you're in the area. Some impressive automation. Story was a little confusing and a couple puzzles weren't clear, but some great mechanics and clue delivery

Played in the brand new location which looks absolutely amazing, delightful and enthusiastic owners, absolutely faultless game that we enjoyed from beginning to end, certainly kept us busy as a 2. One minor technical hitch with a stuck padlock which they managed to resolve without breaking the game immersion. Absolute must play if in the area and looking forward to seeing their new games come to fruition in the future.

Reviews by escape room review sites

The holy grail of escape room theming is to make the players feel like they've been transported to a different place or time. Marvo delivers that, even from before the game itself starts.
After getting the initial basic game rules briefing out the way, you're led through a door into what feels like the sanctum of a secret society, where the proper briefing takes place. This takes place with the operator in character, and with the help of a high quality video briefing.
The decor progress...
A game that excels in almost every department - puzzles, story telling, automation, design, introduction and, of course, fun. One of the very best games I've played - if you're ever within striking distance of Bournemouth, do yourself a favour and head on down.
It’s fair to say there was a lot of pressure on Marvo. It was the reason for our trip to the south coast, a game that’s eluded us for a while by virtue of just being so far away, yet spoken about in hushed (or sometimes very loud) tones by fellow bloggers as one of the greatest games in the country. It was certainly the only game in the country spoken about in this way that I had not yet played. The reason I point that out is that I find myself disagreeing: it’s a great game, but it’s not quite up there with the best for us.
