  • This room is their largest room in this location. We were happy they used the space for this theme as there were a lot of "secrets" to be discovered in this speakeasy and it is definitely not what it seems on the surface.

  • There are a lot to be done in this room so if you love puzzles, you're in the right place.

  • The puzzles all had a sense of "detective" work build into the clues and as we played through the game, we were able to identify people and things that felt like a game of CLUE.

  • We really enjoyed how a maze puzzle was being utilized in this room. This is the first time we've seen it being used this way.

  • The final completion of how the ledger was retrieved was a nice way to end the game.


  • One of props felt like it was supposed to be a working puzzle before but now it's just being placed in there as a prop.

  • There were some red herrings in this room that were unused and could easily be removed from the room.

  • We were unsure what the relevance of one of the clues was to the answer input.


Although this is a classic storyline of finding a mobster's ledger to put him away forever, it never gets old. The hidden secrets and items that we discovered along the way was what made the game exciting. If you enjoy detective work and hidden surprises, then this case is the one for you!
