I'll be mostly echoing Chris here, but Spellbound is a lovely room that I'd enthusiastically recommend to pretty much anyone. It's a classic of a well-designed puzzle-driven game which benefits from a beautiful set, a fun start, and a thoroughly satisfying conclusion.
It's one of the least linear games I've played. I played with a team of four, and that was a good number to divide and conquer without feeling that I'd missed out on too much due to my teammates solving things while I was l...
A fun game, with pretty decorations and good puzzles. I can't imagine what it would be like with the full ten people but, for the two of us, it was most definitely a rewarding experience and well worth the trip over to Derby.
It’s a big room full of puzzles. Okay, that’s a tad reductive for an intro, but I’m not sure how else to describe Spellbound. The theme is neat enough: like The Signal it’s based on a story from Derby’s history, but this time going all the way back to the witchcraft trials of the 1600s. You start the game split up, and there’s a clever test of teamwork and deduction before you can reach the room proper (it took us a good ten minutes, though we were playing with fewer than the recommended number of people).
