📖 THE STORY

You are an adolescent whose parents have drug you away for a screen-free weekend, and you’re not happy about it! The only thing you can think to pass the time is to sleep…who knows what secrets the dreamworld will hold!


🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • Although it begins as a minimally appointed bedroom, the experience becomes increasingly more surreal and dreamlike, both visually and aurally, as you progress. It created a unique and playful vibe we really enjoyed.

  • The lack of a clearly defined objective made this a more exploratory experience - we didn't know what to expect, as we weren't sure where the experience was going to lead - much like the unpredictable nature of a dream.

  • There were a number of hands-on, tactile puzzles and other physical experiences that were refreshing!

  • The intimate nature makes it ideal for two players - we often play as a duo and find ourselves battling puzzles best for 3-4, but in this case every puzzle is completely manageable by two!


🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • It's clearly a room that has been running for quite some time. As a result there were a couple sticky pieces that didn't open as expected places that could use some retouching.

  • The lighting is low - befitting of the evening dreamlike atmosphere - but, as a result, we found ourselves frequently using our phone flashlights to better see locks and puzzles. A fun kid-themed flashlight would have been quite helpful for eyes approaching 50 years old, as well as serve as thematic set dressing!


🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

This is an ideal room for smaller groups and families looking for a room that has some creative structural twists, as well as a theme that is a departure from the norm. The puzzles require a mix of observation and creative application of items, and will be fun for people who like to explore their environment (as opposed to simply standing deep in thought battling complex logic challenges).


🔎 HINT

Explore hard-to-see places and pay close attention to anything out of the ordinary!


ℹ️ ADDITIONAL INFO

Paid parking is available on the street immediately in front of the building. There is also a free public parking lot a couple blocks from the facility itself. Signage for Sauve Qui Peut is very clear, and there are a couple of restaurants and shops on the same block of this cute street. They have good-sized lockers and restrooms available in an otherwise sparsely decorated waiting area. All rooms can be done as French or English versions; however, the intro stories are only available in French. Our GM gave us short summaries of each room in English. You can have up to three hints to still be considered an official win; you can still ask for more beyond that.
