If your dream is to become a detective one day, this is the game for you! A high-profile personnel has been kidnapped! Our team of 4 will be working with INTERPOL to try to save him from the kidnappers and hopefully land a job at INTERPOL!
This was a great game to be played on Zoom. Once you purchase it, you could host the game and play with friends anytime. There was a lot of searching that had to be done on different social media platforms (some we haven't even seen before). If you don't have LinkedIN, Spotify, Facebook and Instagram, your team would need to create one (free version is fine). There would be no need to add or follow anyone on these platforms. It's merely for clue searching. It would be wise to divide the different tasks among your team members. Some questions were very obvious and some would need a lot more digging. From first look, we thought we would be able to complete this game quite quickly but in the end, we completed it in about 45 minutes.
This wasn't a game involving any logic puzzles. It was more of a mystery solving type of feel. It was still satisfying at times to be able to "unlock" answers from our cyber sleuthing results and the finale made us felt like we actually saved the day. Go Team!
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
