Stop That Launch!

I was supposed to tackle this as a team of four, but someone dropped out last minute. As it's a five-star room, I went in with low hopes of breaking out.

Story

Save the world by stopping a missile strike.

Puzzles

Hard, with a capital H! Although we cracked some of them quickly, others had us completely stumped. They were army-themed, and a couple of practical tasks were involved to spice things up a bit. One of them stood out as particularly novel to me. Clues weren't coming when we needed them, but even so, we'd have needed many more to get out.

Mise-en-scène

'Enemy territory' was uninspired. As mentioned, the puzzles and props contributed to a military environment, but  it was otherwise a basic office.

Final Comments

We were at least four puzzles away from success. Take your best team for this room.

Sabotage is not a particularly showy game - the modern setting translates to a fairly stripped-down theme and mostly straightforward props. But it's a well designed and satisfying room, and some nice touches give it an edge of understated humour that I really enjoyed. And the difficulty is sufficient to give even the more experienced teams plenty to get to grips with.
It does use a quite remarkable number of padlocks, though these are very much on-theme. There are also quite a few promising-loo...
