No Need to Panic...

My second visit to Clue HQ as they did a good value '6 play for £60' offer.

Story

Find out who managed to kill a wealthy businessman inside his personal Panic Room.

Puzzles

They were very discernible; it was easy to see what you had to do and when. Although there were one or two difficult physical puzzles, it would have been too easy without them. Most involved a fair bit of working out, but as a team of six, this was no problem, especially as we could split up.

Mise-en-scène

Not great. It was techy-looking and appeared very similar to Detonation, just with different props/equipment in there. Although the victim is described as a businessmen, the 'body' looked like a young chavvy teenager (I'm sure he was wearing trainers).

Final Comments

It wasn't a particularly exciting escape experience. A team of six was too big- take about four people.

Rated between 30 and 30 out of 5

Chasing Crooks

Another escape with family, and my mother's first, though she was only in it for the photo at the end!

Story

Having received intel on notorious criminal Danny Badd's current location, try to catch him...but don't get blown up. 'Danny Badd' seems to be a recurring character throughout Clue HQ's games.

Puzzles

Easy-peasy, though there was one physical challenge that was practically impossible. I was applying a lot of knowledge from my past escapes, and so none of the puzzles here felt all that original. A hint was needed for the final challenge, but it was a 'blink and you miss it' kind of moment.

Mise-en-scène

I'm not sure where we were actually supposed to be. 'Rooms with puzzles in' is accurate, so don't expect to be transported to a criminal mastermind's hideout.

Final Comments

Nothing to write home about. An ideal room for newbies.
