We both really enjoyed this game, albeit a little easy. It was very well written and linear which we like. Would not recommend for more than 3/4 people as there isn’t enough to do. A good starter escape box.
Probably the best ER-in-a-box out there right now (Oct 2016). All paper & cardboard, but fun paper & cardboard. Neat story, varied puzzles, nice illustrations. A bit lightweight for enthusiasts.
Recommend 2-4p max. Can be reset if you're careful not to mangle anything. (Reset instructions are on the ThinkFun site.)
I was pleasantly surprised by this one! Solid gameplay, nice tangible parts, good story, completely reusable, pretty much checks all the boxes for a tabletop ER game.
