Read our review on “The Dame Disappears” to find out more details about Great Scott!! Mystery Rooms.
Our next room, “The Legend of the Fairy Queen”, was a very fun theme. It was rated more difficult than the previous room we did and when we completed it, we did feel that there were more puzzles in this room. The story for this room was that we’re staying with our grandparents for the summer in their farmhouse attic. Since they weren't home when we got there, our grandfather had set up a scavenger hunt to keep us busy. But as we were finding clues to his puzzles, we discovered someone else also “lives” here and it seemed like they were in trouble and needed our help. There was a lot of information that was visible to us when we entered the room. I would suggest “divide and conquer” would be the best strategy here. As a more experienced player, we did not waste our time on some of the props but I would say it would be more helpful to bolt some of them down as the new players would definitely spend a lot time looking through each and every one of them. The clue system did become problematic during our game, but our game master came quickly to the door to assist us with hints when we needed it, so it did not delay our gameplay. There was one puzzle that became confusing to us because there’s a certain temporary puzzle in place as some pieces were missing and a tech item wasn't functioning. We think it would probably be best to either remove the puzzle or repair the current as it did trouble us a bit with the temporary clues that were in place and disrupted the game flow. We did enjoy a lot of the details that were put in this room in terms of utilizing everything on toys and games with the relatable age frame. It made us feel like kids again and doing a real scavenger hunt. The latter development of the storyline was also entertaining. We love the décor changes throughout the storytelling. The only thing we felt could improve would be to incorporate more puzzles and distribute it more evenly throughout the game rooms as the last part of the game felt a bit “empty”, but it was supposed to the “wow” ending room.
Great Scott!! Mystery Rooms in Storyteller’s Cottage was such a pleasure to visit. We didn’t want to leave at the end. The owner had to have spread some kind of “magic dust” in the air because we will definitely be back!
