Poison Escape Room
We were one of the first groups to be able to play it, so we didn’t have any feedback from other teams and didn’t know what to expect here.
Poison is about a villain (certain similarities to the well-known Joker cannot be denied) whose insidious plans to poison society must be foiled.
The room is advertised for 4-7 players. There were only three of us, which is actually not enough. For one thing, you’re split into two groups at the beginning, and an even number is better so the teams finish at about the same time. Communication and teamwork are the order of the day here, so 2 people per group are perfect. On the other hand, we were surprised after each section of the game that it was still going on. The puzzle density is incredibly high and in the end we overran our mission. The four of us might have just about made it, because you can split up very well, especially in the last part of the game. But even before that there are passages where you can act very well in parallel.
We have gone through many sets with attractive decoration. There’s enough room for four or even more players, and the number of quests keeps also larger teams constantly busy.
In summary, we had a lot of fun with Poison and the 5th place on our 90-room comprehensive ranked playlist Barcelona is not entirely undeserved.
