Secret of Nikola Tesla
We played four rooms at Questum. The Secret of Nikola Tesla was the last one, but we also unanimously liked it the best. I don’t know if it was because of the early morning hours, but the gamemaster seemed a bit sleepy and unmotivated. In addition, there was a power cut during our visit that affected the entire location and caused quite a bit of stress for the young man and added a delay to our tight schedule.
I had already played this room in a similar version as a remote escape game at Claustrophobia (there it is called “Tesla’s Mystery”), which meant that one or two of the puzzles already looked familiar to me. But fortunately I couldn’t remember any solutions. I can always rely on my bad memory.
In the first part of the adventure, we got stuck, and before frustration built up, we asked for a hint. In the further course of the mission (in the laboratory), things ran very smoothly. I really liked the setting here. It’s fun to handle the old-looking equipment and experimental set-ups. There is a lot to do, which is why I would classify the mission as challenging. The puzzles and tasks are always themed and can mostly be solved in parallel. So, “Secret of Nikola Tesla” can be played very well by four people.
