Puzzology – Miscellany
Game Date: 30/01/2019
Team: Amy & Ian
“Miss Celia Laney witnessed a mafia murder and is on the run. The trial is on NOW and only she can send him down. Can you find her in time for the trial?”
A simply decorated room that did the job nicely, it was an office so there isn’t a massive amount of decoration to play with. Minimal decoration led you to focus on the puzzles and there was nothing in the room that could be misconstrued as a red herring.
The room could have benefitted from a soundtrack, or soundscape to give a bit more immersion and dimension to the game.
An open game, with a good variety of puzzles. Word, Logic, Observation, Physical and Searching being the main players.
All the puzzles were logical, and the answers were clear and defined. The ah-ha moments were found easily and enjoyable.
The flow was good, with this being an open game there was no set path to follow but there was still a good sense of progression and achievement throughout the game.
Signposting was clear and fundamental to the game play in this room.
A nice game, that played well and had some nice moments and unique twists on some standard puzzles, with a few really original ideas throughout the game too.
