What a fun puzzle game for team building! When I first saw this game, I was really worried about being the weakest link (as did one of other teammate) since this game depended on all teams finishing the puzzles together in order to move forward. We did not get that feeling at all. It was more of a collaborative experience than individual. We liked how the puzzles started on a easier level and gradually got harder. This gave us time to familiarize with the game and came up with a strategy plan.
There were 10 puzzles total and all of them differed in their own ways. Technically you can have as many members as you wanted to on each team, but it seemed to work the best with 2 people per team for us. We hosted the teams on Zoom and we found to work the best since it captured a lot of our laughter and ponder moments. This game does score you at the end, so if you wanted to play it in competitive mode then you're able to see time at the end (although you won't be able to advance without your teammates' help) and if you took hints, points will be deducted. We love to see a sequel. I wonder if the game would get harder if more teams are able to be incorporated?
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
