Imagine yourself on the high seas during the golden age of piracy. Two days ago your crew boarded a ship with disastrous consequences. Most of your fellow buccaneers were slain in the battle. A lucky handful, yourself included, were captured and thrown into the brig to await the mercy of the ship’s captain.

Suddenly, you hear a crash from above and a lurch. You deduce from the cries of the crew that the ship is taking on water and will sink within the hour.

beautifulhi-techall of thesequite difficult

I just cannot pick enough of the positive tags above to describe this room. From the beautiful location, the warm and passionate owners/GM, the fab theme, incredible decoration and attention to detail, the props and use of tech in the room, the puzzles themselves, and the difficulty level which kept even 2 experienced players guessing. Located on a beautiful farm park with animals, kids activities and more, this room is still in its infancy but blew us away, especially as the design and build is from relative newcomers. Definitely one to include on your trip if you're in Cambridgeshire, make sure to save time to visit the farm and cafe too though! They are opening their second room in September and we can't wait to go back and play again.

beautifulvalue for moneygreat hostingquite difficult

Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this game- can clearly see how much time has been spent by the owners in creating the puzzles and unique interactions with the space. Everything fit beautifully within the theme and there were some great touches that I hadn’t seen anywhere else before. The location is a little out the way but we’ll worth the visit if playing in nearby Cambridge or for a sole trip! They’ve a second room opening in September and I’m sure it will be good too.
