Escape Room

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 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 […]

Project Minotaur

Project Minotaur by Quest Room in Los Angeles, CA, USA

In the middle of this game I remember quite literally screaming, ‘What am I doing with my life?’ Let’s put it into perspective, when you are playing an escape room that you are wonderfully immersed in, if you aren’t asking yourself, why it’s so crazy then maybe it’s not the […]

Wardrobe for Sale

Wardrobe for Sale by Escaparium in Laval, Canada, QC

During our Escaparium marathon we played Wardrobe for Sale which I had heard good things about. We start the game by being shown down a rather empty hallway with just one item… a fairly mundane wardrobe. We were then invited to inspect this nice, but unremarkable, piece of furniture and […]

Missing by Enigma-tic in Blainville, Canada, QC

This was the second room we played at Enigma-tic, the first being ‘The Master Builders Path’. Although it is not obvious from the title ‘Missing’ is one of the better homages that I’ve played to the Netflix phenomenon that is Stranger Things. The room is filled with lots of subtle […]

Mary’s Dolls

MARY‘S DOLLS by C9 H13 NO3 Donors in Athens, Greece

It had been quite a while since my last visit to C9H13NO3 Donors (yes, that is the chemical formula for adrenaline, how cool is that?). The first thing I was happy about is that the pâtisserie around the corner was still there selling the good old Greek pastries. Back then […]
