Red Alert: 61 minutes to escape from the mysterious apartment.
Pros: The owners were very friendly. The waiting area was large and inviting. Once the game began it moved forward in a linear fashion and we had no major problems working our way through the puzzles. The game master answered our questions when we had to clarify some parts of the game.
Cons: This game had fewer puzzles to solve and was more about locating keys. There were a few surprises intended to startle and shock players. We got through these with several minutes of wasted time arguing who would have to do what. In the end, it worked out fine and we both were relieved when the game was over. We felt some of the surprises were unnecessary and did not add to the game play experience. We don't want to give away any spoilers, just be warned about the "surprises."
