We've played Free Yuri Koblenko back in July. This is an 2.0 version of that game.


We've been assembled here to help an innocent man break out of prison. We failed the first time, will we be able to complete our mission this time?


Version 2.0 of the game was still played on the same online platform. This time we each were assigned a "role" so that when the mission started, every one knew what they had to do. I wanted to be the leader but "Blue" (the game master) took my position. Your teammates will decide on other roles like strategist, interrogator, grifter, data miner, map person, researcher, and chameleon. This was part of the 45 minute game play and serves as the preparation time before the rescue mission. There was much less reading to do in version 2.0 and most of the back story was told by the game master. In the previous version, reading took a long time and did not leave much time for the players to strategize so we're glad to see the improvements in this new version. You will also be given the prison's blueprints (yes they are the actual blueprints of the prison! How cool is that?). These were in PDF formats so it's best to open these side by side with the Zoom screen. The game play had a better flow this time since the game master was able nudge and guide us and towards the right path if we're off track. We really enjoyed the adrenaline rush by helping Yuri making that escape at the very last second.


This is not your typical escape room or tabletop puzzle game. It's more of strategy and role play. Your goal is to get through those guards by gaining information on them and utilizing your communication skills. You'll also need to observe details and take actions quickly. The role assigning really helped as the team leader or the person who's in charge of that specific role will be able to make a call quickly on the next actions since the real play time is approximately 30 minutes or so.


Version 2 of the "Prison Escape" felt more organized and enjoyable than the previous version. It gave us a glimpse of what a real attempted escape would have been like. You needed to think fast and deal with sudden and unplanned situations. I felt like I was watching an episode of "Breaking Bad". Working together and making quick decisions as a team was the only way to succeed in this game. We can't wait to experience this in real life one day. Oh and one more thing, "Blue", you know I'm a better leader than you right? 😉

(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
