    Just completed and we loved every minute. Now going to challenge my sons to a timed solution!

    Just completed this with my partner. It was really good, not easily solved but excellent fun and definitely going to try the other two games! Really cleverly put together!

  3. AJ

    This is amazing. From the moment we opened the box it was completely engaging. I genuinely got goosebumps because it was so spooky.

  4. reanne

    Made for an amazing evening with my partner. The thing I loved most about this story is that once you’ve played through the puzzles, you have a fully function board game to play too! Which in itself was very fun and hilariously frustrating. The puzzles were tricky enough to be challenging but not infuriating, and the theming and story was awesome too. I hope they do more in the series like this.

  5. Ada

    I absolutely LOVED playing this, its the first escape room/ mystery experience I’ve ever done and it was brilliant. all the clues were so smart and the story was intriguing. you can tell that so much effort was put into making this game. for anyone who loves mysteries I would defiantly recommend this experience.

  6. Nicholas “Doctor Mobius” Corkigian

    This was a fun mystery to solve. It wasn’t fiendishly difficult, but it did take a bit of puzzle-solving. I only had to use the online hints once for the colour puzzle as I have some colour deficiencies. I knew what I had to do; I just couldn’t see the right colours.

  7. Clark Binkley (verified owner)

    Brilliant! Everything was so well put together and nailed the spooky/mysterious atmosphere. Convinced me to order the other two sets right away. In meantime, we’re going to try actually playing the Ghost In The Attic game-within-a-game!

  8. Chris (verified owner)

    Wow, that was intense! We even started talking about the characters as real people. Beautifully put together, well thought out, and engaging. We ordered our second strait after finishing the ghost in the attic.

  9. Josh Lenton

    Amazing! The level of attention to detail in this mystery was top notch, Head was throbbing by the time we solved it but what a wonderful afternoon we had doing it.
    It even has some sherlockian style clues which for us was just the icing on the cake.
    Cannot wait to do the other mysteries

    Spent 4 hours playing this with my family today and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We’ll be ordering the other two!

  11. knj.kendall

    Our whole family loved this, age range from 9 – 66 years old. All of us took part and completed it in an hour! So good and highly recommend!

  12. Emily Tupper (verified owner)

    We throughly enjoyed this game!! A great way to spend an evening with friends! Loved the spooky theme and we all got into the spirit of the game. Everything is well planned and thought out. Definitely recommend. It gives you chills!! Can’t wait to try the others.

  13. Mollie

    Absolutely fantastic! We had so much fun trying to solve the mystery and we were stumped a few times but the hints were really useful. Good family fun 🙂 Highly recommended!

  14. Harry Ford

    An amazing experiance with great storytelling and fun puzzles. Love the spooky theme throughout and was very well crafted. Well done to Henry Lewis for doing something so different to mischief theatre!

  15. danmartine (verified owner)

    Really inventive escape game! By far the best we have played – and the bonus of a game within the game!!!

  16. Clare

    Components are excellent quality.
    When you open the box the replica board game is actually chained up!

    Similar in length & complexity to an exit game but the addition of actual physical lock boxes and padlocks is really cool and elevates the whole experience.
    It is quite reliant on its own website, but it site is well done and atmospheric, puzzles are interesting and quite diverse.
    Thoroughly enjoyed this one

  17. Ellen

    brilliant game with wonderful features and a fun twist in the end. Over all an incredible game but very spooky. I am 10 and was very helpful when playing it with my family. Hope we can get some more escape rooms soon.

  18. Becky Amos

    We loved this game! It was challenging in a good way and so clever. We loved the theme and were scared to open the box in case Walter came out!! Brilliant fun, highly recommend.

  19. Ian Wright

    Incredibly fun and well constructed escape room type game. Puzzles pitched at just the right level. Thoroughly enjoyed.

  20. Kate McSharry

    Really enjoyed this mystery. The story was good, the quality is fantastic. Some clues were harder than others – we needed a couple of clues to get our brains going in the right direction- but I’d fully recommend- we got the full set and can’t wait to play more!

  21. Linda

    Enjoyed playing this mystery, you certainly need your thinking cap on at the log in stage. Very well put together, recommend to play on a desktop or laptop (windows), as had problems at the end of the game with acceptance of final password on Apple tablet.

  22. TC (verified owner)

    Honestly have never enjoyed a game so much! Incredible detail and so engaging. Also, how you managed to make an escape room box game so creepy is crazy! Such a beautifully delivered game. Love the fact that we can reset and play again in the future!

  23. Cleo

    Extremely high quality and ridiculously fun mystery game. I must have played dozens of this type of game over the years and this was easily the best. From the second you open the box and see the spooky chained up board game you know you’re in for an absolute treat. Difficulty was not too tough but enough to take your time over, with a couple of head scratchers. Really wonderful.
