I’ve played a couple of games by Escape Room: The Game now and unfortunately they just don’t make much sense. I love the idea that they try to get across, but sometimes the chrono decoder just doesn’t work, and the puzzles do not flow at all. If I’m honest it’s very frustrating.
Well the puzzle are fine, but the chrono decoder is somewhat unreliable
The main gimmick of Escape Room: The Game is the "Chrono Decoder" - a piece of plastic-y electronic tat that's meant to detect and validate your solutions to the puzzles. It doesn't work, and instead seems to randomly respond to your input with either a "congratulations" beep or a (slightly different) "you failed" beep, based entirely on its own whim. This renders the entire game a frustrating, unplayable mess.
A decent Spin Master game. Again, paper/cardboard, uses the same electronic timer dohickey. The puzzles in this game (Virus) are fair.
