          Pros

          • - Can accommodate a large group

          Cons

          • - Video quality needs improvement
          • - Requires English proficiency for some puzzles

          For those of you who’ve played Escape from the Mysterious Room, this one is similar in that it allows up to 12 players in the room (you can book for up to 11 online, then pay in-person for the 12th), and you split up to solve various puzzles around the room. While the background story is different, the general structure of the puzzles and flow of the game are pretty much the same.

          Despite the similarities, our team unanimously enjoyed this game more than Escape from the Mysterious Room. The puzzles showed more thought and creativity, and were more fun than frustrating. And because there are a variety of puzzles to be solved, it allowed for everyone to participate. However, some level of proficiency in English is required to complete the game successfully, so that’s something to keep in mind.

          Did I love the game? Not really. Did I have a good time? Yes, but that’s partly because of who I played with. I would’ve enjoyed this game less if I had played with strangers. Honestly, at this price point ($28 + HST), The Trial of the Mad Fox Society is not my top choice…unless you have a large group, and your group is at an intermediate level or higher. It is definitely not suitable for beginners. Of the large format games by Real Escape Game, my favourite is still Escape from the Time Travel Lab.
