The first game we played at Lucardo was, of course, the one they describe as their hardest room. The gamemaster told us in the briefing that it's hard not because the puzzles are unusually difficult but because of their sheer quantity, and that was entirely accurate. Fortunately it's also a game with plenty of content to tackle in parallel, and since we'd come with an unusually large team of five we were well placed to divide and conquer.
Contamination is a laboratory themed game. That's not a ...
A room with reasonable theming that went down the route of quantity rather than quality for its puzzles. If you're looking for (individually) hard challenges then look elsewhere but if you're looking for a mad dash race through a bunch of puzzles then this is the game for you.
