We played the curse of yama challenge. It was very well crafted with good riddles. We had a lot of fun. It was challenging but not to hard. We did it as 2 people and it worked fine.

It was really cool. We loved it and we‘ll do it again! We played the one called starfire or something like that with 4 people. I think that’s a good size for a group. Thank you for this experience, the money was really worth it.
