great hosting

Great first gen game. Our gamesmaster was really friendly and only gave us hints when we wanted. Closest we've ever come to completing a game with 0 clues too!

Military love padlock right?

Story - general mayhem has gone nuts to the point where he activated the missile to blow up the base. You have 60 mins to deactivate the missile.

Theming - the theming was really good but it was lacking of prop around the room to make it look like a proper military base

Puzzle - I really enjoyed the puzzle in this room (it wasn't that difficult in my opinion) as they were related to the theming or the story which was a bonus. Some mixture of logical, physical and mental puzzle.

Clue system - via walkie talkie.

Positive - I love when puzzle are related to the theming/story to make it creative. The story was interesting and quite funny as it's quite random, it had alot of padlock (I love padlock so yay) and the music was quite intense and I love it!

Negative - there was a reset on a padlock which suck but oh well and lacking on props by a little bit.

Overall experience - strike force was fantastic and I recommend at least a team of 3 as it's mainly linear. Everything was amazing don't miss out!

Reviews by escape room review sites

Strikeforce isn’t likely to win any awards for design or creativity, but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this room to teams looking to play for the first time. It’s a solid room, but I do think that your GM could make it or break it for you. Fortunately, ours made it

On entry the room definitely had a good bunker feel with some cool props and on-point decor.

The props linked in well with the puzzles although I have to admit we did get stumped on one thing and had to ask for a clue.
