Each Unlock game has its own little gimmick - this was by far one of my favourites and definitely the most fun!

It would be more immersive and a better functionality if the timer stops when you reach the final bit of the story. Found it a bit difficult as a first game marked as 'easy' though. Was a bit shy to ask for clues but it doesn't seem to take time away from you!

Had  a lot of fun playing this. Do not play this one on your own! 2,3,4 players would be good! Great little dynamic in this one!

Unlock! are nothing if not experimental. I imagine it's due to the variety of designers involved, typically a different designer for each game, but the way each game is distinctive not just in presentation but in gameplay is one of the series's particular strengths - although that comes with the drawback of inconsistent style of play.

Each set of three games tends to come with a spread of difficulties, and Boogeymen is the game rated 'easy' in the Exotic Adventures set. (Yes, they're clearly ru...

The Night of The Boogeymen is as good as Unlock! and table top escape games have gotten for me so far. I loved playing this game… and we’re not going to give away our copy (like we normally do) because one day I’m going to forget the puzzles and I’ll replay it.
Don’t worry kids! That Boogeyman under your bed isn’t real. But the ones in your closet, hiding in that shadow and lurking outside your window totally want to eat you. And that big one in your nightmares? Yeah – he’s the worst Boogeyman of them all.
The Unlock! Team is back. This time you’ll be entering the horrific night fears of a child who needs your help beating not one, but SEVERAL Boogeymen!
The game contained plenty of challenges, plus a new feature called Constraints. These red text boxes revealed a constraint to game play that was unique to the boogeyman being sought. Only when you found the monster did the negative effects come into play. These didn’t add anything to the game, other than cause frustration and we recommend ignoring these cards.
