We played Mission to Mars game while on a family vacation to Chicago. It was a such a fun time, and our game master was helpful with hints without us feeling like we couldn’t figure out the puzzles. Highly recommend!!

We had a great time. As it was our first time, we did not know what to expect and we were really pleasantly surprised. It was an exciting, fun and challenging moment. All of the family really enjoyed it.
