The story was fun, the puzzles were challenging but not to the point of being too frustrating. We were a group of 5 and we all had a great time. The price was very reasonable.

Such a great game to play, very fun. We were 4 and I think that's the perfect number of contestants. We really had a great time, we will definitely come back to the second room.
