The Alchemist

The Alchemist by Sherlocked in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Back then when I started playing escape rooms regularly and people would ask which were the best ones, a game regularly mentioned was The Vault. It’s therefore not surprising that in the first Terpeca awards that game made it into the Top 10. Many years passed until Sherlocked announced a […]

The Non Believers

The Non Believers by Your Escape in Leiden, Netherlands

When an outstanding room opens in the Netherlands usually two things can be immediately observed. A quick rise into top rooms and a difficulty to book it during weekends for several weeks if not more. This was the case with the Non Believers, which was additionally accompanied by very […]

Jason’s Legacy

Jason's Legacy by OuterGround in Rijswijk, Netherlands

Jason’s curse had always a special place in my heart and not only because it was in Rijswijk , which is where I live, but because it involved a wow-effect I experienced there for the first time several hundreds rooms ago and was back then also considered one of the […]

Inmortum II

Inmortum 2 by Hostal 83 in Gironella, Spain

We’re already used to some craziness from Mii, the main character of the Hostal 83 experiences, but what awaited us this time was absolutely bizarre and crazy! We bought tickets for his new, popular show and drove to Gironella (75 minutes by car north of Barcelona) ahead of schedule. Unfortunately […]

La Taberna

La Taberna by The City Escape Room in Terrassa, Barcelona, Spain

The Weeping Witch

The Weeping Witch by Cross Roads Escape Games

Does she weep?…well you hear her before she comes. I wasn’t looking forward to this game. I ‘didn’t’ play scary games before this trip but I’ve taken on a few now and I’m definitely coming round to the idea. When I turned up, I asked our GM, I believe it […]

The Arena

The Arena by MindTrap Escape Room in Murrieta, CA, USA

Enter ‘The Arena’ I was very scared but equally intrigued to play this game. In the reception at this venue is a clear number of people that have ‘tapped’ out and have not played, I was worried I might become an extra digit on the tally. Fortunately I didn’t. This […]

The Last Supper

The Last Supper by Quest Tavern Escape Room in Pomona, CA, USA

This was one supper I didn’t want to end. What an incredible experience. This was our second game from this venue and along with their first game it didn’t disappoint. The space isn’t huge but it really doesn’t need to be, given that fact it’s still actually very generous in […]
