It’s a Bank Holiday weekend in Royal Tunbridge Wells.
Two days ago, there was an attempted Robbery on Wells & Sons Jewellers by a local gang named ‘The Diamond Dogs’, led by Terry ‘The T-Bone’ Steak. The deadly gang were planning to lift the famous and rare Montogomery Diamond.
Unfortunately, the thieves got spooked halfway through the heist by a keen and suspicious security guard, so they fled the scene with the intention to return before the Bank Holiday weekend is over.
However, some of the gang have got cold feet, so now Terry has called you with a deal you can’t refuse: Get him the Royal Diamond and you can loot for yourselves whatever you can get your hands on!
Do you have the ingenuity to execute this meticulously designed heist, cracking the security system, breaking through the vault, avoiding capture by the police, and escaping with the famous Montogomery Diamond?
Choose your gang wisely - one wrong move and the plan is foiled!

Diamond Dogs is great!  The start of the game is brilliant and sets the tone for the rest of the experience.  Great humour and interaction with the games master throughout, coupled with a logical flow to the game and puzzles, results in a memorable escape room that is in my top 3 games.  Go and play!

In 50 games this one has shot up into the top 3.  We loved the theming and everything about the game.  Great puzzles, totally on theme and the finishing touches here are amazing.

Robberies is one of great themes of Escape Rooms, a great start turns into a tricky series of puzzles that tests a lot of different skills (particularly search and observation), there is an element of point scoring that other rooms have implemented but its more of an afterthought,a great finale rounds out the experience.

Great adventure to play as there is a lot to do, loved the start of the game - its a great way to get the adrenaline flowing and hype you up for the heist.

The narrative progresses well, but there are areas which are quite small, which made searching and moving a little problematical, we had lots of "can I just get through there" and "can I squeeze past" moments. But this didn't distract us from the mission too much and we loved the fast-paced finale which gives a most satisfying conclusion to the adventure.

Impressive start to immerse you straight in to the story and characters of diamond thieves. The room flows well with the story and has an intense ending where you have the opportunity to empty out every safe... Extremely fun room

Reviews by escape room review sites

Diamond Dogs has shown that it’s true you should never judge a book by its cover, proving that a heist game can be adrenaline-fuelled, immersive and exciting; full of twists and turns, inventive puzzles, and with a strong story. TL; DR - this game is fantastic

Our time (played as a two) of four seconds remaining will give you a much better idea than any description could!

In short, this prequel to the Jail Break game hits a home run (if you can combine the two games in one day I would highly recommend it!). All in all, our checklist for a great room has been ticked playing this one. Great puzzles, brilliantly atmospheric, subtle use of humour and a great flow, make this a room not to be missed. Its SAFE to say you'll love it!
