The GM's reckon Seven Seas is the hardest room at the venue but I reckon this gives it a run for its money, whilst not as visually striking as Seven Seas, the scenography is still effective.  Effectively a game of two halves, both non-linear in nature, the first luls into a false sense of security as it's quite quick but then the real work begins.

The premise of The Cabin is that while you were camping in some remote location, someone has raided your tent, stolen some of your possessions, and left you a threatening note challenging you to come to his cabin and get them back. And of course you accept the challenge, rather than doing the obvious and sensible thing of getting out of there and calling the police.
A little theft is pretty tame by the standard of cabin-dwelling maniacs, and although The Cabin is theoretically a scary theme it’...
Even standing in the hallway, it’s clear that the set design for this game is leagues above the games we had played here previously. The Cabin is a solid, well thought out room, and worth playing if you’re planning to visit Peterborough
