This was our first cowboy themed room and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

The start of the game was slightly ruined by the fact that the door to the second room of the game had been accidentally left open, which meant our host had to come in and close it. This happened very early in the game and so didn't completely ruin the immersion, accidents happen!

We were offered two different styles of game, Cowboys or Indians, and we chose Cowboys. There were some puzzles that we didn't have to complete as they were for the other game. The main game was the same however.

The scenery and setting is strong with lots to look at and you could believe you are standing in a Western saloon. We enjoyed our time and happily worked our way through the puzzles without too much difficulty.

After playing liverpool's we play chester's version and enjoyed chester's version more. There are quite a few different puzzles and the games seem to flow better here.

Played all of the Breakout's "Wanted" Games. Not the best of the centres, but not the worst either. Great theming, good puzzles that all fit the theme. Hosting great for our game.

great hosting
A Western themed game that doesn't involve breaking out of jail.  Theming is on point (I approve of the playlist of western music but possible a little too loud..)  Game is looking a little tired (I mistook a crease on a label as an arrow when it wasn't).  Shouldn't present too many issues if you've got a few rooms under your belt.

Scour the Saloon!

This room is different in that breaking out is just part of the challenge- once you’ve got the exit code, you then need to collect as much loot as possible.

Story

Raid the saloon for all of its riches and break out before the Sheriff catches up to you.

Puzzles

Fairly rudimentary, but decent. For the money-collecting puzzles, you get no hints whatsoever: no spoilers, but you really need to have your think-of-everything, search-everything head on if you want to strike it rich!

Mise-en-scene

With saddles, a bar area, barrels and a piano, Most Wanted definitely gives a saloon feel. It looks a little tired, but that kind of compliments the space.

Final Comments

Our team racked up about 70 tokens: we’d still be there now finding the rest of them if we weren’t told at the end.
