How to Solve a Life
This is the first time I did two escape rooms in the same day…the addiction is setting in! Having heard good things about Lucardo, I was excited to pay them my first visit.
A serial killer is on the loose. Investigate the latest murder scene to track down the next location s/he plans on striking to save a life. Rather than escaping a killer like most storylines, solving puzzles to find out the next target is a good little creative twist and gives you a clear end goal to work towards!
Cunning and rewarding. Teamwork was obligatory for some, which I always love to see. I was playing with a clever bunch and so one or two of the puzzles had been solved before I could so much as look at them.
Very dark, shadowy and chilling. It was difficult to appreciate all the décor due to the lack of light, but the feeling of being engrossed in the scene of a crime was there for me.
A team of four is just about right for this one.
Fun room that we booked last minute after really enjoying a couple of other games at Lucardo. Difficult to do this theme well now as rather overused and didn't enjoy as much as the other 2 we did there but overall a great company and would recommend any of their rooms if you find yourself in Manchester. Got very confused by one puzzle and a little too dark for my liking with searches but otherwise fun.
Another great room from Lucardo. Some parts were pretty creepy but it was great. Some of the puzzles really made you think outside the box! did it with just over 4 mins to spare. This is a typical Murder Mystery type room. You are a police investigator and the murderer has struck again - You have to inspect his latest crime scene to try and find the next victims postcode! so you're basically tearing the room apart for clues!
