          Pros

          • - Room was spacious
          • - Variety of puzzles

          Cons

          • - Décor and furniture pretty generic
          • - Puzzles didn't tie into theme

          Escape from the Mysterious Room is Volume 1, the very first room developed by Real Escape Game. I guess that somewhat explains the lack of theming. It was basically one big room with generic furniture in it, and then a tiny adjoining room that tied into the story, and set the stage for Volume 2 – Escape from the Time Travel Lab.

          We played this game just before they retired it, so perhaps that’s why the props were so worn out. Another reason for this is probably due to all the searching required for this game. Our team was rather gentle with everything, but I imagine some folks were pretty rough during their searches.

          As mentioned earlier, theming was weak. The puzzles didn’t tie into the theme all that much; it felt more like an assortment of tasks we had to complete, versus solving a mystery and/or decoding a way to escape.

          As escape rooms go, this is not one that I was rushing to recommend to everyone after playing it. There was nothing outstanding about it, and for the same price point and format, Escape from the Time Travel Lab was much more clever and well executed.
