Overview Notes:

This is one of the more difficult rooms that we've encountered in NJ. There is a LOT to do - this room can easily keep 4 enthusiasts busy for the full hour. There are some creepy components, but nothing terrible that would make this room not be family-friendly (ie: there's some bones, but no blood or gore).

The Game   


Game Introduction: We are a team of explorers looking for the Jade Skull!

Operator Intro: Exciting - takes you into the story

Theme: Action

Narrative: Carry out a Heist

Main room first glance: Wow!

**Full Disclosure** This main room had to be explained to me after the game was completed, as I didn't 'get it' at first. There are tons, and tons, of moving/packing crates surrounding you within the tomb that you entered - the tools your excavation team will need! The tomb is beautiful, with a large statue in front of you.

Flow: Very Good and coherent flow

The beginning of the game is a little choppy, with some mental leaps that we needed clues to figure out. Once we got into the game, it flowed beautifully - we knew what we needed to do, and had a clear path we were trying to work out. There are some points within this game where your group can separate into 2 or 3 puzzles simultaneously, giving larger groups something to do.

Puzzles: Well thought of. Intriguing

There are some unique puzzles in this room, that we haven't seen elsewhere in the area. We loved that the puzzles stayed on theme for the room, and most of the puzzles within the tomb had more of a physical/ancient feel, as opposed to high visible tech. Aesthetically, it was very pleasing.

Game Strengths:

Large working area - (lots) of unique puzzles - 20+ steps - enthusiast's delight

Game Weaknesses:

Rocky start, could get frustrating for new players
