Fairy Tale Findings
As this room has a medium difficulty rating, I just brought one other person for the challenge.
Transported from a library to a witch’s gingerbread house in a faraway fairytale land, escape before she returns and eats you. NB: Our GO said we were in the ‘restricted’ section of the library, apparently…
There’s so much to find in this one, meaning once or twice- much to our chagrin- we had to be given a nod in the right direction! Apart from one or two anomalies, the puzzles took fitting inspiration from the Brothers Grimm and similar authors. I enjoyed the variety of locks to crack- there was pretty much one of every single type- and the assembly/procedure of the final puzzle struck both of us as being very impressive. In the reset prior to our game, one of the boxes was left unlocked…luckily, this was associated with one of the earlier puzzles, and didn’t cause us too much confusion.
In this smallish space, the petite wooden furniture, cabinets crammed with artefacts and other décor gave it a beguiling, olde-worlde atmosphere; it would definitely pass for a fairy tale witch’s cottage in the deep, dark forest. However, I’ve never seen so many ‘Do Not Touch’ stickers!
This was a solid three-star room. Were it not for our subpar searching skills, we’d have probably got out in record time.
