It was lovely to meet Stephen the GM when we returned to this venue to play their second room, Grand Gallery Heist at the Escape Modern. He was very enthusiastic and set the scene well. We also greatly appreciated the heaters in the room on a chilly day.

We enjoyed the unique and clever puzzles but found our observation was lacking. We needed 2 extra minutes to escape with the painting but feel that if a clue hadn't fallen off the item it should have been stuck to then we would have escaped in time. We were also specially told not to remove any paintings (apart from the one we were stealing) from the walls so struggled when a puzzle required us to remove part from the wall - we didn't dare pull it hard enough as we thought it would set an alarm off.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed this room although with the amount of puzzles involved it might be better suited to a larger team.

Too many red herrings and had no flow to game,

We couldn’t get going at all. With a few small changes would be really good, as there are some excellent ideas and decoration, just for us it missed the mark.

Another excellent game by this up and coming company - lots of unique puzzle ideas that really make you think with satisfying aha moments throughout.
