📖 THE STORY
We wanted to join the fight with the Northerners and would like to show our loyalty by stealing our Queen’s Dragon Glass for the King of the North. This is the key piece of item they needed to win the war. We snuck into the castle but there were many obstacles along the way…
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
We liked how the set design does not reveal an entire room right away. It was nice to feel like we were walking down hallways inside of a castle.
Puzzles were a lot of fun and used all props associated with the medieval times.
Reading materials were not extensive and easy to follow.
The set design got better and better as the story developed.
The game master for our game was very attentive. At the beginning, we were given the option to either take a walkie talkie or have the game master whisper clues to us through a small window on the door. We chose the latter just incase of walkie talkie issues and also to continue the experience. Before we even waved for a hint, she was already prepared to help. Her hints was also clear but not revealing.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
This room would step up a level if the ceiling and flooring could be covered into more of a castle feel. If lighting could also be dimmed a bit or use the torch lights, it’ll enhance the ambience.
Since this game does allow two person bookings, one puzzle could be hard to detect if we had completed or not without a sound alert. It would be great if some sort of “hint” could be added or else the players wouldn’t know if they are on the right track or not.
Music would also help add some mood to the room.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
Escape Game Long Island allow their game masters to put their creativity and imaginations into their game designs. This is a great idea since game masters interact with the players the most. The game masters know what players like and what would be confusing to them and this game heavily used puzzle designs from them. We loved the game flow and we think you guys will enjoy it too! If you miss "Game of Thrones" now that the show is over, why not come relive it in the “Battle for the Throne”?
All at once.
