A interesting murder mystery/cold case kit with mainly paperwork and deduction. Good quality printing and a solid amount of work to do to uncover the murderer. No online element, no real "puzzles" just elimination with logical steps.

NOTE: We played the original black and red version of this game with metal tins, not the Mattel version. 

Absolutely loved the time we spent playing this game. A clever mix of puzzles, activities and a lovely payoff. Everything you need contained in the box and multiple uses of some items made for a very enjoyable experience.

A another brilliant one from Hounds. So detailed and immersive with amazing decoration, logical puzzles and activities, some fantastic surprises and spaces. Hilarious GM and sidekick too :)

Absolutely superb space, brilliant theming, clever split start and a superbly dramatic ending. GM was brilliant, funny and engaging, just such fun and we only needed one hint half way. Didn't want to leave this world! Hounds is amazing all over!

A really detailed briefing from our "kidnapper" and a very clever use of space. Brilliant puzzles all well in keeping, great styling and overall an amazing venue!

My first little puzzle box like this after watching Chris Ramsay and Mr Puzzle solve so many of them online! Lovely introduction. Not many "steps" but logical and fun to solve.

A very interesting interface, a cool story and great use of video. Fun puzzles and a great value for the amount of play you get!

Loved the interface - something a bit different! And some nice puzzles, a nice mix and good variance and difficulty level

Some good puzzles and a few very clever uses of the game components to make things interesting, but still a couple of times we had to use a hint or two per puzzle and then still didn't think it was that good a puzzle. Like the little extra addition at the end too. Definitely the most varied one we have played so far but not the best puzzle wise.

Bcked this on Indiegogo and played in its original Angel location. Absolutely brilliant recreation of the TV show, great games and brilliant maze master. Only negative was that the tokens in the dome were small flimsy bits of silver and gold foil that were torn and tatty, so hard to grab! Still an amazing experience and bought myself a crystal at the end as a memento.

Very well put together sets and props but you are moved through so fast you don't get enough time to appreciate them. Actors are all amazing but we spend a lot of time listening to them and running after them and not actually doing much. Quite chaotic at times with lots of people talking at once and wasn't sure of what we were supposed to be doing. A couple of really good immersive bits but go do this with the knowledge you are ultimately inside an episode of Doctor Who, sometimes being talked to by the cast.

Love all of Paruzal's games. This one was written for a school so at a fairly easy level and quite short,  but the puzzles made sense and were a lot of fun.

Not the best of their rooms but enjoyable enough. Very different in style to previous ones I have played.

A brilliant immersive event where a random group of you you met at a starting point, were given a mission, and followed clues to locate locations, actors and puzzles along the way. Small snacks and drinks were also provided and then the ending was in an escape room type environment where the finale played out. 

Sadly ended after the first run, carried on in New York but never came back to London. There are a few things that mimic it these days but haven't played anything quite like it since!
