On his deathbed F. X. Balko told his housemaid that his painting of Saint Xaverius hides a secret, clues that lead to the whereabouts of the Holy Grail. Despite experts scrutinising the painting and trying to crack its mystery, nobody has ever been successful. The story became a mere tale. But what if it were true? Embark on a very special adventure and find out! You and your team will have the chance to spend 60 minutes in a forgotten chapel. Are you ready?

There's some lovely things about this room - lucky enough to play it new, and the space itself looks great. Has a strong start in terms of puzzles with linear progression, however it does fall foul of a personal bugbear of mine which is making it so dark that the challenge is more of aging eyes rather than any ability. Good clue system. A couple of things let it down for us in that the ending felt rather weak in terms of the final puzzle and we struggled to understand quite why the game then ended as it did - suspect our GM was quite inexperienced as this may have worked better with a different spiel at the beginning.

A beautiful set with plenty of puzzles and a longer than average duration which I think is as much about making sure you have a great experience in the room as it is fitting in those extra challenges.
