📖 THE STORY
We are going to school unprepared. There are a lot exams waiting to be taken with many different subjects. Can we pass with flying colors or end up with a big red F?
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
Vibrant colors with a real classroom setting. All props used were relevant to school. We love the big black board as our notepad. It really “helped” me with the Math question.
Different school subjects were incorporated into various puzzles which made it fun to discover. We felt the nerves as time was running out. I’ve never failed any class before and was certainly not prepared to do so now.
We enjoyed having to “piece” together things to complete a “picture”.
One of the players thought she “made a boo boo” when she found something, but it was an actual puzzle element. We really enjoyed the “surprise” facial expression.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
A math puzzle we had was a bit confusing as it could be read both ways. It would be great if it could be indicated with which side is up. I took a long time looking at it the other way and it did not make sense.
There were too many “repetitive” hints for one of the puzzles and it actually made it more confusing as we didn’t know If we needed to use all of them or not.
Some props could use a bit of an update.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
We were joined by a family of 4 for this game. We had fun giving some of our “escape room advices” and letting them open the locks. This room actually had some challenging puzzles even though on the surface it seemed “kiddish”. Our recommended group size would be 4-6 people. If you think you’re an A+ student in school, come give this room a try!
Where are they facing?
