I Was Framed: Our best friend had been framed for murder. We had to find the identity of the real murderer before it was too late.
Back to the 80s: Trapped in the 80s, we had to find the missing mix tape to escape this decade.
Pros: We arrived in DC during the bombogenisis and immediately regretted traveling to what essentially felt like the arctic. We made our way down the icy streets to Escape Live in Glover Park. Once we had sufficiently thawed out in the waiting room., we were escorted into our first room. The puzzles were very logical in both rooms. Our gamemasters were ready to help out if we were ever caught in a jam but luckily we didn't need a single clue. This is just the type of room we like - perfectly solvable without intervention from a gamemaster.
Cons: The set design was very basic and sort of a let down after our experience at the Georgetown location for Escape Room Live. The storylines were basic. In I Was Framed, the puzzles were largely disconnected from the storyline.
We played with a delightful group of new players who thoroughly enjoyed their experience. We definitely recommend this location for first time players. More experienced players should head over to the Georgetown location for a more immersive experience.
