This is a fun, family-friendly tabletop escape room game that feels like "Unlock!++": it contains card-based puzzles that will be familiar to anyone who has played Unlock! or Deckscape, but combines them with a game board, new gameplay mechanics, and a narrative that is told from the point of view of the various members of the Mystery Inc. team as they uncover the secrets behind a haunted manor. The different rooms of the house must be revealed and explored as gameplay progresses, and special abilities of team members which are added (or removed) over time provide a greater range of possible player actions than in some other titles. The puzzles themselves are not difficult, but combined with these extra gameplay elements make this an enjoyable, rounded tabletop game.

The scenario is entirely appropriate for the Scooby Doo theme, but you don't need to be a fan or have any previous Scooby Doo knowledge to enjoy the game: we played with my 7yr old daughter who really enjoyed it.

Rated between 35 and 35 out of 5
