The Gallery: Searching for hints about what happened to a missing artist, our group had to scour through her studio in search of answers before the police arrived.
The Study: As secret agents, we had to break into the study of an inventor who kidnapped some of our agents.
Pros: The game master was very enthusiastic and helped to get the group fired up about playing the games. We appreciated his excitement. Our team did well progressing through the puzzles. Some unique puzzles really challenged our thinking. Set design was basic but appropriate to the theme.
Cons: The puzzles were mostly logical, but a few could be modified for more clarity. The main issue we had was with the shear number of puzzles. There were so many boxes and locks to open and puzzles to solve that it seemed like overkill at times. Often the puzzles were not relevant to the storyline and theme and felt more like busy work. Fewer and better designed puzzles would infinitely improve the game-play experience. Overall we would not recommend Escape Sacramento as an experience for first players. More advanced players however, would enjoy the challenge of the multiple puzzles.
