          Pros

          • - Really feels like a medieval prison
          • - Puzzles were relevant to theme

          Cons

          • - Not suitable for beginners

          When I expressed interest in this room, the owner told me that it was a “back to the basics” kind of room. Indeed, there were no electronic locks, devices or puzzles. But there was nothing “basic” about the room set-up. When you open your eyes, you really feel that you’re in a medieval prison. From the walls to the floor covering, it’s evident that they did not skimp on the décor for this room. Nicely done!

          As for the puzzles, my team that day (which was not E4G) found them to be more on the difficult side. By the time I did this room, I had already played all their other rooms (other than the “boss” room) and I’d say that this room is definitely the hardest. It wasn’t impossible, but did require you to be extremely sharp and observant. I suppose those skills help in just about any escape game, but especially this one. The puzzles did tie back into the story quite well though.

          I’m going to be picky and complain about one little thing. For one of the puzzles, we had executed all the necessary steps, but still were not able to solve the puzzle. This was simply because there was some waiting involved, which we did not do since we were running out of time! This resulted in us wasting more time, and we ended up having to ask for a hint, only to be told that we were doing the right thing. Not a huge deal really…I guess it’s more of a lesson learned for future games.

          I would recommend this room for advanced-level players. For those of you looking for a challenge, this room is for you!
