📖 THE STORY

The late inventor Sir Richard Jebson’s Golden Share went missing. Without it, his family cannot prove their rightful ownership of his company. We must help them locate the missing Golden Share.


🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • Great job with creating “wow” moments in the room.

  • First time we saw a “transformation” take place inside of the room being done this way.

  • Puzzles were enjoyable and had a great flow.

  • Given that pretty much the entire room’s puzzles ran on tech, it was amazing how seamless it operated.

  • Thoughtful placements of props which even remembered to give players a “working space”.


🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • An empty space near the radiator in the first room seemed a bit out of place. Perhaps incorporate another puzzle or a décor there?

  • The walls felt a bit plain for the story line’s setting. Perhaps a bit more “yellowish” in color to set the “aged” tone for the timeline of the era of the story.

  • One puzzle piece was a bit difficult for a shorter person (5 ft) to find.

  • The room felt a bit bright and there’s not much of a change from the beginning to the latter. Perhaps a change in lighting or music could help with the immersion. Maybe a faster music tone to get the feel of urgency as time gets closer to the end.

  • Some aspects of the room felt like more puzzles could be incorporated as there are “spaces” left for them. It would be interesting to see if a harder version could be created for enthusiasts.


🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

People with great observation skills will do well in this room. We feel that new players and enthusiasts would both enjoy this room for different reasons. There was a lot of “wow” moments that we as enthusiasts loved discovering. New players would definitely learn a lot of different puzzle solving techniques in this room. This is a great room for people who love to treasure hunt and solve mysteries.
