Pike's Peak or Bust: Our group of adventurers found ourselves locked in an old miner's cabin reliving Colorado's Gold Rush past. We had to stake our claim and find the gold as quickly as possible.
Dorm of the Dead: The university had been overrun by zombies. Fleeing the science lab we desperately struggled to make our way back to the dorm in order to find a way out before we became zombie lunch.
Mustache Thief: Pierre is on a quest to be the world's only mustache-bearing man. We had to find the secret to stopping him from shaving the mustaches off of his unsuspecting victims.
Toys in the Attic: Stuck in an attic full of toys, we had to find the key to liberate us from our childhood prison.
Conspiracy Theory: The truth is out there! Or is it in this conspiracy theorist's apartment? Leo has lots of wild theories but which one is true? Only time would tell.
Pros: We played all five of their games in a single day and successfully escaped four out of the five (you can guess which game was not our favorite). Puzzle types were unique to each room and the difficulty level varied substantially. Toys in the Attic, for example, had all toy themed puzzles and was decorated like a child's play room. We had three different game masters and they were all nice and ready to provide us our three maximum clues per game. The story lines were generally simplistic and easy to follow. Our mission was made clear to us in the beginning. We especially enjoyed playing the Mustache Thief with its very unique theme and humorous puzzle elements. We still can't get the song out of our head!
Cons: We repeat: We still can't get that song out of our head! But on a more serious note, we liked all of the games except Conspiracy Theory. The concept behind it was great and the set design cool. But we felt that puzzles were overly complex and less logical. We felt ourselves giving up at times which is never a good sign.
Thanks for letting us play with you Epic Escape Game!
