The Timekeeper's Trap: Locked in the den of a crazy clockmaker, tick-tock will we be able to unlock the lock? Is time on our side?
Pros: The owner and game master was a delightful individual who thoroughly made us feel welcome and excited to play. He stayed in the room with us and carried us through troubled times or whenever we found ourselves at a loss. The room had a unique theme and the set design was clearly tied to this theme. Many of the puzzles were quite clever and we appreciated their connection to the story.
Cons: There were so many clock-related puzzles that our brains are still numb from the temporal experience. We had puzzle overload all around. We thought we did fairly well in progressing through the many, MANY puzzles, until time ran out and we were told how many more we had to go. If it were not for the helpful hints of the game master we probably would not have progressed as far as we did since most of the puzzles were overly complicated and convoluted, requiring some translation in order to solve them. Overall we think we liked it but we are not entirely sure since our thinking tool kind of shut down midway through this game. So we will get back to you on that one when it is up and running again.
