Escape from Alcatraz: Handcuffed and locked in a cell, we had 60 minutes to fly the coop before the guards returned.
Blind Tiger: Our first task was to discover the secret location of the 1920s speakeasy. Once accomplished, we had the more difficult job of trying to identify the identity of the seven mafioso who operated the illegal business.
Escape from Antique Room - Searching for the stolen Mona Lisa, our group was on the tracks of an art dealer who was suspected of the crime.
Pros: Escape SF had very good set design in most of their rooms. We especially liked the speakeasy feeling and layout of Blind Tiger. Some unique surprises in Blind Tiger and the Antique Room kept us intrigued the whole way. The puzzles were logical overall. We easily progressed through the Alcatraz room but struggled more with the puzzles in Blind Tiger. The game master was very attentive, intervening when we were clearly stuck and providing helpful hints along the way. The puzzles ranged in type and complexity but were quite solvable. The storyline was basic but the cool sets pulled us into the game.
Cons: The only cons at this place was the complexity of some of the puzzles especially in Blind Tiger. But the challenge was great and the game master kept us moving along. In the end, the set experience made it worth the frustration caused by the difficult puzzles.
