This is the second game we've played from The Escape Game Online.  Although this one was ranked as a bit more difficult than the Gold Rush game, we actually finished it even more quickly.  As with this company generally the inventory system is excellent, and the hosting is strong, with both an in-room host, and a GM keeping an eye.  A generally enjoyable experience, but most of the puzzles were of types pretty familiar to escape room regulars.  We had a good time nonetheless, and felt a warm fuzzy sense of superiority that we finished so quickly ๐Ÿ˜‰

Good game, well hosted and led-through by our Informant as an online game.

Suffered somewhat as an online one since some puzzles were difficult to see/do remotely in that manner - the inventory page was a good way round this, but it still deducts from the sense of discovery somewhat when things just ping straight into that rather than having the fun of spotting it yourself - even if you do need it because it's not always clear.

This was particularly noticeable with using the camera to find particular solutions, requiring out host to go to greater lengths to work on it.

Also felt limited because we only had one pair of hands - even with the inventory management, we could only test or try one thing at a time which I could see being problematic with more than a few people playing as it can leave some people less able to interact or having one person lead all the time.

Still an excellent experience, however, and a great standard for new or experienced players alike, and very friendly and experienced staff, ready to help but also letting you work your own way through things.

Do recommend, especially in the current Pandemic times!
