📖 THE STORY
We are in the 1920s, during the Prohibition Era. As we entered the local saloon called “Bugsy’s Juice Joint”, we had a lot of mystery to discover. Since Bugsy was away, we have an hour to find his loot and be out of there before he comes back…
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
The set design for this room was beautifully done. As soon as we entered, we felt transported back in time to 1920's era. From the piano to details on the bar, no expense was spared into making this look like a movie set.
The logical and physical puzzles were really creative and different. Some we haven’t seen before in other escape rooms.
Although we usually don’t like to have a game master in the room with us during the game, the character play for the story line didn’t bother us much for this one.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
A clue was incorrectly associated with the answer on a lock. It would be great to get a few opinions on it and change the lock answer to match with the clue given. We were able to get it at the end by trial and error.
There were a lot of “finding” components in this game. One particular hiding spot, we felt, would be impossible to find without a clue.
Some music would be great to add some ambience to the room, especially as we get closer to Bugsy’s return.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
This was a pretty challenging room for the two of us. There was a lot to do and a lot to find. Our recommended group size for this would be 5-6 people. We’ve done a good amount of speakeasy rooms and this one probably is the best one yet. "Xscape The Room" currently has 5 games at 2 locations. We’ve tried 4 of them and really liked them all for different reasons. Let us know how you did in "The Speakeasy" and hopefully you’ll be able to get the loot before Bugsy gets to you!
The answer may be “within”.
