The Great Car Heist: This mechanic is involved in some shady business. We had to figure out what was going on in his garage and then get out quick.
Pros: We loved the waiting area at Brainy Actz. It was filled with games and we spent some time playing these and warming up our brain before heading into our room. The gamemaster quickly briefed us and escorted us into the garage. The set was decorated to theme with lots of props that gave it a realistic auto garage feeling. The gamemaster was very helpful and the hint system convenient to use.
Cons: We struggled and failed on several puzzles due to mechanical failures and some logical fallacies. We definitely recommend they revisit the puzzles and consider adding guideposts to help direct players to the clues associated with the puzzles. We escaped only after MANY hints and extended time. The puzzles could be reworked to facilitate better game flow. But don't let this deter you. We definitely enjoyed playing at Brainy Actz and recommend you try it out.
