A game we thoroughly enjoyed. There's a great set, a fun intro, a great variety of puzzles, a couple of nice surprises, a good sense of exploration and an impressive finale. Throughout our time in the room, it rarely put a foot wrong.
One of the biggest escape room cliches is “start small, expand”. You’ll often start a game in a small space before doing something to discover the existence of a second room that opens up the game. It’s a cliche both because it works well in offering new players a sense of discovery, and because most properties are generally divided into rooms for you already, so it’s easier to do. Not so Pirates of the Stormy Seas. On entering you can see and access the entire game area. And while other games have done this before, perhaps even with larger or more densely populated rooms, the way this game does it… well, let’s just say it’s on another level.
