Theming is probably the biggest strength of this game. The imagery was beautiful and the story was woven into it well but the puzzles were weak. Worth playing, but print in black and white to save some money

If you watched the film, you'll recognize the usage of the newspaper in the puzzles. It was a great way to connect the puzzle pieces and eventually evolve into a meta puzzle. We really enjoyed the "detective vibe" that it gave off since there were definitely moments of searching, investigating and visualizing throughout the journey. The puzzles were not difficult and you could definitely play this with your kids. Perhaps they might even see some clues that you might have missed!

An Enola Holmes Adventure was a load of fun. The game perfectly encapsulated that spirit of light-hearted adventure that made the film so enjoyable.

Iā€™d recommend this game to anyone who likes the film and wants to have a crack at solving their own mystery. Iā€™d say its challenge level is better suited to families, but it makes for an excellent way to round out movie night for anyone.

When all is said and done, this is certainly up there with my favourite print at home games. As ever, getting a real wow factor proves difficult, however the combination of the escape puzzles and an accompanying Netflix movie certainly goes a long way to fill that void. A great collection of beautifully designed puzzles, suitable for all, which hit a home run in my household. Get out your magnifying glass and check this one our for sure!
