If you also set a star rating, the star rating won't be shown anywhere but will still be used when calculating the game's overall score on Escape The Review.
Superb game - lots of original puzzles - couple verged on illogical but we got there in the end. Really well paced as well.
Probably the best escape room I've ever played! The host was fantastic, the puzzles were amazingly original and the whole room was completely family-friendly while not being dull. Most of the puzzles are made out of wood which means you probably haven't seen them in any other rooms. Also, the theme of stealing a barrel of ale from your officers is a welcome change from most WW2 escape rooms where you are a spy gathering information or a prisoner trying to escape. I can't say much more without spoiling the room, but I would recommend it to anyone, whether it's your first or fiftieth room!
I loved this game from Escape Plan. Sam, the host, was super friendly (and he learned all our names in order to give clues to the right person, and give us personalised time cards at the end) and the puzzles were great.
The tech is all in house and suits the theme - lots of wood, great scenery and a sense of humour with some of the design. The barrel-top games (no spoiler, you'll see what I mean straight away, they use this design in both rooms as well) are BEAUTIFUL. A few too many padlocks on this one but it fitted the style of the room.
The ending was charming, too. All round worth the trek eastwards, looking forward to the next room "Battle For Britain".

For a game set during World War II… It’s surprisingly light hearted and funny! But wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. Roll Out the Barrel isn’t technically set during World War II. It’s set the day after. Your mission? Throw the best party for the troops you possibly can. Everyone knows the best parties involve obscene amounts of booze which is why three intrepid troops and myself just broke into our officer’s top secret bar cabin to steal all their barrels. It’s party time!!
