Overall, the game was quite decent. I had noticed that the "room pics" on the website were actually 3D renderings, so I was a bit worried, but as it turned out those models are an accurate representation of the actual room.

At the end of the game, successful escapes are rewarded with a photo on the Iron Throne. We had a group photo together and when we asked if we could have one more, we were met with “you’ll have to be quick, I have to reset for another group”. Understandable, but with an escape time of 50:51, there was enough time to take a couple of pictures. It did taint the experience with customer service that didn’t seem to care too much. In order to understand how well we did, I had to ask our host. Often, when visiting a room, part of the game debrief is to explain how well you’ve done. Sadly, this is lacking here.

The game was a huge amount of fun to play as a Game of Thrones fan and meant that I often found myself smiling at the links to the TV series. The theme was great and, although it did have a story, it seemed a little tagged on as the game didn’t really discover the weapon of power and magic. For enthusiasts it can be done in a smaller group but beginners may need to bring a group of at least four to help cover the space. Overall a reasonable experience which could be improved so easily. If you have a list of games to play, visit those before considering Winter is Coming, unless you are a die hard GoT fan.
