Cheap, easy, fun.  Good for when you need a "puzzle fix" but don't necessarily have the time/energy/table space to unpack a more substantial narrative box.

Reviews by escape room review sites

We enjoy Deckscape games for their simple setup and the fact that it does not take up a lot of room to play. These ones are quick games that can be finished in a shorter time than most. The one answer set up does allow you to pace the game more to your liking, if you want to just flip the card over quicker to reveal the answer or look over it a little more to make sure the answer is correct.

Overall, this one in particular is a solid Deckscape game for beginners to start out on but also for veterans of escape games. Knowing the nuances that they put into their games, some Deckscape enthusiast could solve this game a little faster. We played with 2 people and would not recommend more than 4 people to play. There is only one deck of cards to look though and it could easily get crowded. We also did play this game when the power was out at our house which was perfect since no internet connection or outside source was needed to play. If you need a game to play while on an airplane trip or camping, this is one we would recommend.
