📖 THE STORY
Our mission was to find the alias of a missing agent and bring down the syndicate responsible for his disappearance. Our clues led us to a casino…
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
Right away this room “screamed” fun. There were various types of casino games placed around the room. It does help a little if you already know the rules of some of the games, but there were clear instructions so outside knowledge was not necessary.
The spacious room and nonlinear puzzle designs were great for large teams and/or experienced players who loves a challenge.
The story was incorporated within the puzzles and presented a clear ending.
From evidence collecting, deductive reasoning, logical thinking, and making the final call on who was the syndicate, we felt like we were real detectives working on a case.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
One puzzle confused us as we were not used to one challenge having multiple solutions.
We would’ve loved to see one of the puzzles at its full capacity but unfortunately it malfunctioned that day. It also caused a bit of confusion for us since it felt like a solvable piece.
Some casino sounds would be great to add to the atmosphere of the room.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
Love espionage? Sherlock Holmes? Clue? You’ll probably want to give this room a try. Putting clues together piece by piece and ultimately finding “the one” was satisfying. There was a lot to do with just the 2 of us, so if you are just starting out with escape rooms, we suggest a larger group. Have fun and catch the bad guy!
