The King of the 8 Realms of Kandala has died and by the rules of the Continent a new ruler must be selected. Long gone are the days where this would be decided by swords on the battlefield, and now has become the custom that the next ruler would be decided by a contest of wit and guile. Each Realm would select a set of Champions to compete against other contenders for the Crown. Both teams are locked in the Chambers of Champions and must race to complete a series of challenges set by representatives of the 8 Realms. But the stakes are high where victory has the ultimate prize and failure is met with execution.

Probably the most overwhelming escape room that I have played and the first see what you can manage in an hour style. Really great variety of puzzles, simply something for everyone and I loved the way in which teams can compete if they wish in this room - every sound really builds a great sense of how well the other team is doing. Very clever and a lot of fun even if my brain was fizzing after!

We took on the extended 90 minute challenge which requires you to solve every puzzle and soon learnt that is not a challenge for the faint-hearted.  The pro review explains the game mechanics so I won't reiterate that, but to say, if you love the challenge of solving puzzles and opening padlocks this is a game worth playing. It seemed overwhelming at first wit so much information which would provide you with the solutions to each of the numerous puzzles so you need to stay focused and remember carefully what you've already used to solve a puzzle and communicate this carefully between team members, as a 2 we had to work almost exclusively individually until we got to the last few that we'd both passed up earlier in the game and the final meta puzzle. Theming is simple but effective and the room is not particularly big, but it works well and doesn't need to be more elaborate.

A simple yet effective room where you can either find a way out as quickly as possible or try to solve every puzzle to become the new ruler of the kingdoms. The room can also be played as a versus room to heighten the suspense and pressure with both rooms in clear view of each other. A riddle heavy room so a puzzle minded players dream but practical players like my other half may not enjoy and feel overwhelmed. The room isn't that spacious so I would say teams no bigger than 4 people should be okay. We solved around 70% of the room before running out of time. Highly recommend this room for like-minded mental thinkers but practical players be prepared to only solve puzzles and not have much of a practical element. An extra 30 minute option is also available for those wanting to solve every puzzle.

A thoroughly enjoyable game that just kept delivering serotonin hit after serotonin hit with small wins that took us on our journey to the crown. If you like puzzle overload then this is the game for you.
