They’ve been out on the far side of the Atlantic for a while now, but the three new Unlock games finally reached the U.K. in December. Here they’re sold as a single box of three games with each described as a different difficulty level, and House on the Hill is the first and easiest.

Ahhh, lockdown 2.0… It’s back and it’s gloomier than ever. So I find myself once again at my board game shelf, rummaging around for fun things to do with Player 2 at home. Enter “The House on the Hill!”

Oops – this one has actually been on my list for MONTHS. I’d put it aside as a perfect Halloween game to play. Halloween came and went. So better to play this one late than never! Even if we did choose to play this on a sunny Saturday morning instead of a candlelit Halloween evening it’s designed for.

If you love tabletop games and escape rooms, this is the perfect game for you.
This box-set escape room board game comes with not one but three separate scenarios for you to play. There’s nothing too wacky as far as story goes: take your pick from a haunted house, a pirate island, or a sunken wreck on the ocean floor…

It's a very reasonable escape at home game, the artwork on the cards is good and it does make for an entertaining evening (especially with a horror movie on in the background to really hit the theme!)
