This is the second instalment of the same storyline, although a totally different setting and theme (which makes total sense within the context of the story). The theming is immersive, and has a great ending, as did the part 1 room. The gamemaster was excellent, clearly paying very close attention, and the clues were helpful without giving too much away. We felt the clues we did need still left a lot of working out to be done, so we didn't feel like we had cut any major corners by asking for clues once or twice. Apparently there will be a third part to the story available next year, and we will certainly be back.

Another excellent addition to the Disappearing Duchess series! Storyline was fantastic and I can’t wait for the next instalment!

This is a good room and worth playing but not sure it lives up to how amazing chapter 1 is. A couple of the puzzles felt a little too "off piste" and like they didn't naturally flow as part of the room. Really good scenery and setting though and the game hosts are really lovely.

Whilst not as strong as part 1, I would still definitely play this game, there are a couple of puzzles that are just there to slow you down by their physical nature but mostly there are very good and completely in keeping with the theme.  This game does end on a bit of a cliff hanger but apparently Part 3 is coming soon.

Unfortunately chapter 2 didn't live up to chapter 1. Some parts were particularly hard and also in the first area the lighting was very poor so was very tricky to do the padlocks.
