Since playing games with Heiner, I’ve stopped looking into the details of what I’m playing. I just turn up and enjoy it. I was particularly looking forward to this game after hearing about some of the other games this venue has produced but I didn’t know what to expect!!

Have you ever wanted to be part of the Adam’s family?? Well this is your chance.

I’m not sure how to write about this game without giving away spoilers but if you like like a bit of improv (which I do) you will love this game. The actors were brilliant and really made this game for me. As with any live actor game, the more you put in the more you get out. Especially if you’re not easily offended.

Wednesday greeted us and to be honest the game started then. I really needed the toilet but I felt like a 5 year old asking to go. This lead me to start questioning whether I should actually have read what I was letting myself in for.

Again, hard without spoilers but you have to get yourself into the Adam’s family home, more character interaction and once inside, the invitation to sit down.

Let’s just say at this point, we were invited to stay for food. (Thanks Wednesday)

The house itself was themed as you would expect for the Adam’s Family home with some lovely perfectly timed special effects along the way.

You move through different elements of the house, The Seance, The Torture Room, The Basement. There are twists and turns and some highly amusing points also! (Thanks Lurch)

This wasn’t a puzzle fest as this is definitely more of an experience.

As a team we did seem to struggle with the puzzles. This was quite aptly told to us by our very dry family member, Wednesday.

I think you need to appreciate this is very actor lead and maybe we didn’t struggle with the puzzles as much as we thought. On reflection it felt almost like struggling was a good thing.

This room has a scare factor but I can’t remember ever feeling particularly scared, a couple of light hearted jump scares and possibly elements of surprise. One of my team mates said the scariest bit was some boxer shorts with a foxtail.

If you know you know!

There is climbing and crawling and lots of low light so bear that in mind.

The elements of amusement in this game really are just that.

This was their first game performed in English and they had nothing to worry about. It was executed beautifully.

My advice to anyone playing this game is to enjoy it and be fully invested in it.

Having only played games in English prior to this trip and then taking part in games that have newly transitioned into German and also some only German games, made me realise the effort and extent that people go to. I applaud a massive amount of these games and their actors.
