I very luckily got to play-test the game in an almost finished state. It was perfect.

You won't find better sets than an Edwardian Manor house, full of authentic furniture and smells, and augmented by a bit of high-tech wizardry here and there.

The team get to play roles (Scrooge, Tiny Tim, etc) and interact with some exceptional actors.

The puzzles are appropriate to the theming, not too easy (and harder than I expected for a family thing) but I can't see anyone other than a real Scrooge not liking the entire experience.
