Are you up for the "Trials of Wisdom" test made by Sydney Opera House with the help from "Escape This Podcast"? If you are able to find 4 words as answers through the 4 puzzles, you'll be able to earn your certification!
The theme of these puzzles revolved around different types of performance art. If you know terminologies from music, instruments or ballet, you probably have a slight advantage at solving the puzzles. We enjoyed looking up some terminologies that we were unsure about and learning about them at the same time. It was great for the puzzle creator to provide a word document of the full transcript of the game as it was quite helpful with one of the audio puzzles.
The puzzles were not extremely difficult but we definitely made them more difficult by over thinking. The hint system were not too helpful in our opinion but perhaps they wanted interaction of players with their social media as you are able to reach out for help at @SydOperaHouse (Instagram) or #EscapeTheHouse (Twitter). If you are stuck and need a little nudge, feel free to reach out to us and we'll assist as much as we can remember.
We had a lot of fun with the puzzles and most importantly, this game bought back memories of when we were visiting Sydney at the end of 2018 (photos below were taken from the balcony of our cruise cabin). Sydney was such a beautiful city and we would love to go back there one day!
