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.
I wanted to love it, but the puzzles were considerably worse than in Thinkfun's other escapes. Love the idea though.
Cool construction, beautiful artwork, and admirable attempt at a story. Unfortunately, many of the puzzles were very very poorly implemented, and the experience was quite inconsistent overall. Most of the writing also read like middle school fanfic.

This game was our favorite out of the three. We have not played any box games that would be able to transform into a 3D game yet. This one was very well executed with the story line (adding the eerie feel), puzzles and design. If there was one thing that we felt could use a booster it would be a stronger ending. Perhaps a hidden compartment in the box that gave us that final goosebumps moment or a visual conclusion.
The cursed doll's house is a hoot on the outside and a bummer on the inside. As with the predecessors, the focus was placed strongly on the game material, which is really impressive and also successfully brings the explorative aspects of an Escape Room to the table. On the other hand, this is also a big disadvantage if you want to play it in larger groups.
