A Game of Thrones Escape Room, in the same city where some of it was filmed!  What GoT fan could pass this up.  As before, any explicit GoT knowledge is not needed but you will recognise some of the imagery and ideas.  Some incredibly clever puzzles guided by the Avatar of Ser Dondas who stayed in hilarious character the whole time, recommended.

Very fun Remote Escape room.
Probably more fun in-person as the first half of it is search oriented.
Would've loved to do some of the interactions myself but c'est la vie

Play in the near future as it might close soon

The room is (wonderfully) Game of Thrones-themed, jam-packed full of suitable props, clues and puzzles. Thankfully, as is now the trend it seems, there is an online inventory system which allows everyone to access the different clues however they want and works very well along side a 360 camera shot of the room with a zoom-in function to examine the room features in more detail. As such the best way to experience this room is via split screen or dual screen set-up with the Zoom view in one and the inventory/360 view in the other. The room is physically located in Dubrovnik but that makes zero difference to the experience given that it is Zoom based. Our host, Bogdan, was helpful, incredibly friendly and accomodating with his schedule and plays his avatar character well in-game. The puzzle flow design is linear for this room. If we were there in person that would not have been ideal but it is very well suited to Zoom-based rooms as we only have one set of hands and eyes via our avatar. The actual puzzle design was top quality, nothing enormously taxing but there are lots of puzzles that are satisfying to solve and many of them were genuinely original, hand-crafted and very well made.Due to some late drop-outs we ended up with a team of 4 and a team of 3 but these possibly represent ideal team sizes - my guess is a team of 2 is also perfectly feasible as might be 5 but I would not go above that. Both teams finished in around 44 mins which is apparently better than average so I'm sure some will go to the wire getting it finished. The cost is €50-€60 per room or session (i.e. €10-€15 per person for my lot), above other UK/EU rooms we've tried but when I asked them every one of my club's participants believed it was worth it given the quality of room and entertainment provided. Definitely recommended.

We enjoyed this live-avatar game.  The enthusiastic and passionate host really made the experience for us.

A better than average Game of Thrones room -- probably more fun for a fan with lots of callouts and an in-character GM -- that played as an alchemy-lab room. Uses a code-keyword inventory-management system.

Dubrovnik is where many of the Game of Thrones exterior shots were filmed.  Not really relevant to this game; just thought you should know.

Dubrovnik's first escape room draws on the city's alter ego as King's Landing in Game of Thrones, and while you don't need any knowledge of the TV series or books, fans will enjoy the references to events in those.
Stepping into this room gave a rare impression of space. Most escape rooms are on the cramped side, and it's unusual to have the luxury of being able to use floor space for spreading out clues while still having plenty of room to walk around.
The operators gave warning up front both...

A really fun escape room. The puzzles were very clever and enjoyable to solve, and it required a real mix of thought patterns to get through it. Definitely a great experience if you’re a Game of Thrones fan visiting Dubrovnik.

With the 360 view, the inventory, and Sir Dontos, we had everything we needed to have an enjoyable stay in King’s Landing and came away from this game with that wonderful escape room buzz
Today our escape adventure takes us to Dubrovnik in Croatia. Ok, we're staying home in real life but are still able to travel, because this is an online escape with an avatar (this means that the GM holds a camera and acts as your hands and eyes for you).We receive by email a zoom link and a link to a website. A player will enter given codes as we explores the site and everyone will have access to a view of the different rooms with the possibility to enlarge some "corners" and an inventory in...

This second game of our evening was, overall, more enjoyable than the first. The GoT theme is always fun to play in, the room looked nice, the puzzles made sense (plus there were very few "actual locks" around), and this time the 360Β° viewer was the genuine thing. My fellow players seemed to enjoy their experience. I, however, knew something they didn't...

Overall we really enjoyed this experience, the live host/avatar was friendly and helpful getting us through the game, and the virtual game play worked flawlessly for us. We managed to escape with about 15 minutes to spare which we think was really impressive, considering the volume and variety of puzzles to solve. Playing a virtual game with the same point of view means each person gets to experience the whole game, rather than playing physically where you split off and end up missing parts of it that others have solved. The whole team thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the game.
