broken tech

Fairly simple room in setting. Not themed around the board game but tasked in style with the board games objective. Murderer/place/weapon etc. 

The thing I found frustrating with this is a large section of the game that required UV/Blacklight torches. First of all, we only had 1 between 2 players, so anymore than 2 I feel it could be quite boring for the other players not involved in this puzzle. Secondly that torch failed to work around 2/3 minutes from finding it which we had to wait a good few minutes to get a replacement. Hence the fail….

quite easy

This was a better room but was quite easy. The flow was a lot better and felt a little more immersed but could still tell it was just a decorated office. I expect it’s difficult to build a room but that immersion is important

A very easy Cluedo based room.  Not very challenging but enjoyable. Nothing to tell ypu you've completed the room. Once we'd Said our answers out loud we stood for 10-15 seconds saying are we done, and then the door opened.
