The first stop on our NL/BE trip was Poppet, the eagerly awaited 3rd Rock City Escape adventure behind the imposing monastery walls in Amersfoort. Best of all, the episodes keep getting longer! After Bloody Mary (60′) and Soup du Jour (75′), we at Poppet can now look forward to a comfortable 90′ ​​playing time.

As usual, we are greeted by a person who remains “in character” the whole time. She leads us unerringly through the winding corridors of the monastery, where without her help we would undoubtedly get lost. She explains to us why she called us “specialists” here. She seems a bit nervous and doesn’t seem to have a particularly high level of confidence in our abilities. Apparently, other experts before us have tried in vain to unravel the story of little Amy and her doll. Is that perhaps the reason why she doesn’t want to accompany us? Arriving at our destination, she quickly pushes us through a door and the adventure begins – albeit in a completely different way than expected.

Poppet guides us through a variety of locations, all of which fit very well into the overall picture of the monastery and Amy’s story. I won’t reveal too much more, but I do want to commend the outstanding acting of a character we encountered during the beginning of our investigation. That was very professional!

The extended finale, in which the makers cleverly made use of the local conditions of the monastery, was also convincing. After that, at the latest, everyone knows why the game is called Poppet. There were four of us. I wouldn’t play with more people because of some of the smaller stations.
