Based on the "moving and wonderful" novel The Fragrant Concubine by the exceptionally talented Melissa Addey.

18th century Kashgar. Hidligh has only ever wanted safety and a full belly. On the street and living hand-to-mouth, the beautiful young woman is rapidly running out of any options. So when she’s abducted by a noblewoman, she has little choice but to agree to the deal she’s offered: pose as a concubine to the Emperor of China and act as a spy.
Reaching the Forbidden City and working hard to win over her eunuchs and the other concubines, she succeeds in gaining the monarch’s affections. But as her shadowy β€œbenefactor” loses patience, Hidligh finds herself entangled in a deadly web of vengeance and assassination.
With the fate of the Qing Dynasty hanging in the balance, is the Emperor right to fall in love with Hidligh? Or is his life in danger? And with secrets piling up around her and growing feelings for the Emperor, is Hidligh in too deep?

A pretty room with a good collection of puzzles, friendly hosting and one particular challenge that really made us laugh; not a difficult room but it all ran very smoothly and we had smiles on our faces the entire time.

originalgreat hosting
Having participated in the game on its opening day, I found it to be a delightful experience, albeit with some initial teething problems. Aaron, our exceptional GM, received constructive feedback addressing these concerns, and I am optimistic that once rectified, the room could easily ascend to a higher star rating. However, I did notice instances where the signposting seemed limited, and at times, non-existent. It's worth noting that this observation might be subjective, and with further refinement, the overall experience has the potential to become a solid 4-star game. Kudos to Locked In for a promising start!

This was my first room at Locked In Leeds and I'm glad to say I enjoyed the game. As it was the opening day, there were issues that we had to deal with that were frustrating, but overall the experience was a fun one.
The GM was very friendly and helpful when things went wrong!
