Poseidon, the god of the sea, is furious about the mass environmental destruction that humans are wreaking, particularly our impacts on his beloved oceans. He sees only one option - unleash a massive flood to wipe out our species, and let the Earth rebuild again. Our only hope now is to get hold of his trident - the basis of his powers - before he has a chance to enact his punishment. Can you save humanity?!

  • Sauve Qui Peut are experts in set design and creating immersive environments, and The Wrath of Poseidon is no exception. You begin in a submarine chock full of all kinds of pipes, gauges, and other maritime gadgetry. But the design of a later space, in particular, is truly magical - evoking a sense of calm, joy, and wonder. An absolute standout! You’ll need a moment to take it all in.

  • Given how much is packed into the sub where you begin, we appreciated that part of our brief was instruction on which sets of things we could safely ignore as set dressing. It would have wasted a lot of time and led to frustration had we needed to determine whether each of those things were actually in play. This way we could appreciate them as part of the immersive scenery without being too distracted by them.

  • As in many of their other games, there were a lot of rewarding tactile interactions and problems to solve! Don’t be afraid to get creative. We particularly appreciated the way that one solve opened the way for a later one to be completed! And one puzzle tied back nicely to the underlying environmental theme.

  • The game is available to play in both French and English! While the story video is only available in French, your GM will read you the intro if you choose to play in English.


  • My middle-aged eyes had a hard time with a number of the locks in rather dim lighting, and a small flashlight would have been a helpful addition for the sub in particular.

  • Two puzzles could have used minor tweaks to make their solves a bit cleaner. One had a bit of ambiguity in a reading, and the other lacked consistency (without signposting) in how you needed to solve across several items. While these were not major detractions from the overall experience, addressing them would result in more seamless gameplay.


"The Wrath of Poseidon" draws you in with its scenery, which is at times utterly enthralling! We loved the some of the little elements in the gameplay that felt more like real-world problem-solving (and part of being on a sub). Sauve Qui Peut classifies this as an “Advanced” room, and there are a couple tricky puzzles. However, you can get up to three hints and still “win” the room (or unlimited if you don’t care about that). It is otherwise family-friendly - with lots that younger folx would enjoy - and they recommend it for ages 8+. The Falderon Forest remains my favorite of the three SQP games I’ve played thus far, but I would certainly recommend Wrath of Poseidon as well if you have the chance! And I can’t wait to get back there to try even more of their games…The staff at SQP are also delightful and very helpful - and you can tell they love what they do!


Don’t forget to revisit previous rooms as needed.


The lobby/waiting area where you check in and have your rules/intro also has lockers and seating. There also are bathrooms available. There are a variety of parking options (both paid lots, free lots, and paid street parking) in the area. The closest free lot is about a 3-5 minute walk.
