I got a good impression of Red House Mysteries from the moment I entered the venue, through a corridor lightly but skilfully decorated to evoke an air of old-time mystique. They have two games with quite distinct themes and styles, and the first one we tried was The Heist, with the goal being to break into a museum and steal a valuable enchanted mask.
The theme is familiar, but the game format is quite unique. It's separated into two halves, with the first half consisting of 'preparations', and...

A room with a solid premise but ultimately the execution was lacking. Couple that with a distracted GM and it doesn’t make for the best experience

A well thought-out room with some clever puzzles and a nicely structured theme, leading to a fun finish.
