Things we really liked about the game: the theme felt very original (I had never heard of the Oklahoma land rush, so I learnt something new as well as enjoying puzzles), letters being read out (definitely worth playing these to add to the atmosphere), some beautiful illustrations on a few puzzles.
Why not 5* for us:
Working out what to do with the puzzles took us very little time (and we aren't the most experienced/fastest puzzlers), actually then completing the puzzles to get the code felt tedious at times (working on 2 screens would probably help this a little).
It advises not to play at peak times (Friday/Saturday evening) - absolutely! We had to abandon the game and come back to it because it stopped loading properly. It was good that we were able to do this, but you do have to reenter all the puzzle details.
I would recommend for some of my friends new to escape rooms due to the accessibility of the puzzles, if they are happy to pay £15. For us this is expensive for what it is, but we are happy to support the industry at this time.
Gets really tedious after the 3rd or 4th letter. All the puzzles are similar. Plus, if you go away and come back to the game, then you have to re-enter the answers to get to previous letters.
Not worth £15, maybe £3.99 at a push.

Its safe to say, I was hugely impressed with this experience and there was very little I could fault. A beautifully appointed, atmospheric experience, with well placed puzzles, great flow and very individual yet interesting theme.
