Ok puzzles but not quite there, the thing people are talking about is ok, but I didn't play a localized version, if something that can fell abit out of the game.

Another decent Spin Master game. Puzzles are fair, has some legitimately neat moments. One puzzle's solution is extremely out-of-the-box, but the timed hint gives it to you. This one (Nuclear Countdown) is, as advertised, a bit harder than the previous two (Prison Break, Virus) -- there's more to do, and some chewy process puzzles.

Recommend 2-4p max. Can be reset; printable downloads are available for the bits you're likely to have written on.

Es war nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis das Thema Escape Rooms auch in der Welt der Gesellschaftsspiele ankommt.

A fun and interactive game that offers multiple unique escape room experiences
