The hostel is a great way to get together for a live group puzzle game in a physical place. For the game when you book it you pick all of the themes you want to have, and you put in how many people are going to be in your group so you should verify with your group how many of them are actually going to come before booking it. When you arrive you aren’t told anything about the key and you start where you feel you should but that doesn’t mean that it will be correct as it is up to you and your group to bounce ideas off of each other in order to solve the puzzle in the room.
The maximum number you can have in one group is four people and they really do not recommend this game for anyone under the age of seven years old. But overall this is a great way for a group of friends to get together for a live play game in a environment that is completely committed to the game and that they don’t have to clean up after the game is over. The game really draws you into it as you are playing and will do so until you have completed and solved the game. You can expect the game to take a few hours and you should schedule this at least a few weeks ahead of time so that the company can get the game together for you.
Please Arrive 15 minutes before the start time of the game you are playing. Your group will enter a room decorated exactly the way you picked the theme. You are starting off with the most obvious place in the room TO YOU! It does not mean that it is going to be right, but you are bouncing ideas off of each other and working as a team through effective communication and teamwork to come up with a code to a lock. Once you open that door, drawer, cabinet or chest, inside is another puzzle waiting for you. Your group will keep going like that in the room for one hour and we give you 5 clues. The way you win is to find the object in the room as specified in the game scenario.
