If I had to describe this room in a very short way, I would do it with an analogy and say that this room is something like a Greek equivalent to Abduction 3 in Barcelona. But I imagine many of you have not played this game and the analogy is meaningless, so I would just say that this room is not an ordinary escape room.

What makes this room extraordinary? Well, to start with, the fact that the story is completely irrelevant in this game. The concept is simple, you need to complete a serious of tests that will challenge you mentally and physically. To make things more interesting the game has a complex point system and time limitations.

If you are a traditionalist, maybe this is not your room, as the tasks go beyond the usual escape room. If you on the other hand love originality, then you should not miss this game. The tasks are mixed, some are more conventional, others are not. Parallel work is required throughout the game. Team work is fundamental. This game requires minimum 4 players and it is physically impossible to complete otherwise, with three the gamemaster might be able to help you (please discuss it with them in advance).

As with Abduction 3, probably the less you say about it the better. Due to the nature of the game it is difficult to compare with other games, but just to experience what they have built there is already worth a visit, we all know the Greek are great at making unforgettable experiences and this one last two hours. Do not forget comfortable clothes and shoes (and you know what they say in Greece: bring an extra pair of shoes and socks just in case).
