Yay, the circus is coming to town. What? Every year a child goes missing when they come? That’s unfortunate. We should probably do something about it, but I want to watch the clowns.

We start the game by walking into the dressing room of the clowns; it’s always a clown. The backstage area is filled with many props and conveys a decent feeling. Though perhaps more for a permanent installation than a travelling circus.

The puzzles are reasonably integrated with the room, though it feels contrived. Nonetheless, we used many of the props and it all fits together reasonably.

Somehow I missed part of this room. I was solving a logic puzzle while the other guys were playing with dolls and umbrellas. This is a positive aspect as I like parallel work.

There was a slight bump near the end due to game master misdirection. One of her warnings held us back from doing a necessary action. Not a big deal though.

Overall it was a fun room with decent props and puzzles.
