Reviews by escape room review sites

We rewatched the movie in preparation for playing (though not necessary, it could be helpful), and the game really delivered on all of that good old 80s nostalgia! The reading passages and character-based play make this a fun variation from many tabletop escape games. As more of a mass-market game with a very popular theme, we were definitely not expecting it to be as tough as it was from a puzzling perspective! There were a few points of frustration with the puzzles along the way, but also some very satisfying solves, and we appreciated that hints and solutions were always available. This box is definitely packed with components, and there was lots of fun anticipation every time we got to open a new envelope. You do need a lot of table space, as the map is quite elaborate by the end of the game, not to mention all of the items in your inventory, the notebooks, etc. We would estimate this will provide about 3-4.5 hours of gameplay (3.5 for us), so that is definitely great value for the price. If you’ve always wanted to be one of the Goonies and find One-Eyed Willy’s rich stuff, this is your chance!

The Goonies is an amazing way to spend 3-4 hours and, thanks to some convenient breaks that are built into the story, it’s easy to cut the experience into chunks if you prefer to take smaller bites. Some smart puzzles really pull the rug from under you at times, which is a wonderful feeling when you’re searching for codes and not expecting anything more tangible. Even the player among us who had never seen the film was impressed with the overall theming and high-quality puzzles. Nostalgia helps, but it’s not the only trick Escape with One-Eyed Willy’s Rich Stuff has crammed up its sleeve. It’s excellent in its own right and certainly worth experiencing with a gaggle of your closest puzzle/adventure loving pals.
