We played this room when it first came out. The set for both sections of the game was fantastic. I was particuarly impressed with where you start out, with well themed puzzles. The second room has the impressive set piece that you want from the game. We had a few issues with this, mostly because we are not physical puzzle type people and it took us a little while to navigate what we were supposed to do. However, with some well given clues and help, we escaped with time left and had a good time overall.

Some physical puzzles in this game, and some moments of fun.  Unfortunately the clunky wooden table lets this entire game down.

Really enjoyed this room. Like another reviewer said this game is one of two halves. There's lots of puzzles rammed into the first half that are great fun to work through and keeps up the pace. However the second half the game feels like it slows right down and the main puzzle in this room doesn't seem very clear without needing some prodding in the right direction from the game master.  We really enjoyed ourselves and the difficulty was enough to tax our brains without being too easy or too hard.

Like someone else has said here, it’s a game of two halves. The first half was really fun with some cool puzzles, exactly what you’d want in an escape room. The second half however felt a little slower and unclear what we were meant to do. We escaped but felt like we were almost dragged through by the accommodating GM. Would recommend as a team of two as too many players might get a bit cramped early on.

My very first ER was King Arthur themed and I've always been a fan of the myth so this was a bit of a no-brainer.  Theming is great, even the ascent to the first part of the room feels on theme.  Definitely a game of two halves, there is a tricky physical/dexterity puzzle that initially worried me but its relatively straight forward.  The second half is a series of logic and observation puzzles and is implemented well.

Themeing in this room was more impressive that the puzzles - one that we managed to by pass entirely and one that was more difficult than it needed to be which somewhat marred what should have been a very enjoyable room.
