First game we have played in someone's house! Brilliant set and lovely puzzles that the kids could get stuck into. Money goes to charity too so win-win!

Loved this! Room 8 for our 8&5 year olds and 49 for me and hubby. Lots of great puzzles, not necessarily fitting a Sherlock theme, more steam punk. A couple of really original puzzles and everything ran smoothly. Kids loved the props and watching Daddy doing some hard work 😆.

Room 7 for our 8 & 5 year olds, 48 for me and hubby. Great room, some hi-tech bits I've never seen before and keeping to the theme. Had to ask for 3 clues, 2 of which were that we just hadn't searched drawers properly 😆. HP mad daughter loved it!

Room 6 for our 5 & 8 year olds, room 47 for me and hubby. Nice room, pretty easy even with the kids 'helping'. Some good puzzles, lovely theme.

Great room for our 5 and 8 year olds. Fun story, great set and some original puzzles. A little frustration with 1 key not fitting a lock very easily but overall a great game!!

Great concept, similar to another we have done but this stands out as the first with 'live actors'. Logical, funny story, great balance of when to nudge us compared to leaving us to it. Definitely easier in a small team as there are quite a few points where only 1 person can be actively doing something.

Nice room, lovely story. There were a couple of leaps needed that we probably wouldn't have guessed without a clue but overall a good 2nd room for our 5 and 7 year olds

Great first room for our 5 and 7 year olds - quite padlock heavy but good variety of puzzles.

Tackled as a team of 2, this was a bit more sedate than Ram Raid, which we did just before. The set is beautiful, the story well crafted and the puzzles fit the theme. The puzzles weren't too tricky once you got the idea. GM Matt did well on when to deliver hints, keeping us moving when needed. Nice original end puzzle too :)

We had read reviews of the room and it didn't disappoint!! Great immersion including theme and soundtrack. With only 2 players, there was a lot to do but, because we could divide and conquer, we managed to get the full £1000000. GM Tom was great, sending hints when needed but still making us do the hard work.

Our first ever room!!

Team size: 2 Outcome: Successful escape!

Great game! 

Only flaw (as with many Escape Hunt games) was when the GM had to look/listen for us doing something to trigger the next step, rather than it being mechanical. Most of the time, this is fine, except when the GM isn't concentrating! 

There was also an instruction sheet for a puzzle that literally made no sense to us, to which the GM said 'yeah, a lot of people say that'.

tiny rooms

Did this one with some colleagues even though I had done the Reading version previously. Rooms were much too small for more than 2, possibly 3, people so several people missed out on puzzles.

broken techpoor hosting

TV monitor timer broke within a few minutes, GM said they would prompt us/give time checks. They did neither until 10 minutes to go, at which point we had no chance of completing. Such a shame as we then missed out on the big finish
