Can "magic" really happen in a remote escape room? In this game you'll need to test your "spell" skills and find the Philosopher Stone before time runs out!
We played this room a year and a half ago when we visited Australia. It was interesting to compare the physical room play with the remote play. The game didn't change much visually and there were a lot of puzzles that were the same. Our favorite prop (that we still have not seen else where) was still in the room so it was quite emotional for us since we played this room at the beginning of our ETR journey. We liked how the creators were trying to incorporate the magic into remote play by using passwords ("spell") to open new inventory lists. The inventory list was a bit confusing for us to navigate but hopefully that will be revised soon. It was very helpful to have since our team was able to refer back and forth on different puzzles separately. The room decor felt like a wizard's room in Harry Potter. I am always a sucker for these wizard themes. So if you think you're a skilled wizard, see if your power is strong enough to lead you to the Philosopher Stone in "Alchemy"!
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
