It was only two of us in the room, but we worked hard to ~almost~ make it out, haha. It was a great deal of fun and the clues were perfect. Definitely interested in coming back; perhaps with a couple more brains in the mix!

Oh man this was fun. So fun so challenging, very brainy. Bring your A game and have a blast! If you get distracted you will run out of time.

Probably the most difficult games we've played, which was fun but frustrating especially because we started off badly. We played both games which were both the same price and the same difficulty. The price was higher than any we had played before, but I think...More
