First Foray into Escape Room Board Gaming

This was the first game in the series that we have played and we didn't have a great start! The game comes with a series of card decks (for riddles, answers and hints) and diary type guidebook that pictures the scene and provides visual reference material to solve the riddles. What we didn't realise was that the first two pages of the diary were stuck together (intentionally) and we therefore missed the opening dialogue! After 10 minutes of "what are we supposed to do here?" we realised our error - top tip; take time to set the game up and check the components carefully!

After that, everything was mostly great fun.

The rules are simple enough and the basic game mechanic is to look a picture or pictures portraying the in game location, and then resolve the presented clues or riddles to open up an in game container, which leads to another clue or riddle. The answer to most riddles comes in the form of a three number code, which when entered into the provided code wheel (think of it as an old telephone dial but with three discs of numbers from 0-9) gives you the number of the answer card which should (hopefully) confirm your correct answer and open up the next clue. Some of the clues are very clever and hidden in parts of the game that you wouldn't expect (no spoilers here) and some are frustrating; however, you get a series of hint cards, the last of which is the full solution, for each riddle so ultimately, not knowing the answer will not prevent you from completing the…

Everyone meant to use the cabin only as a shelter for the night, but come the morning the door has been secured by a combination lock, with no one knowing the combination of numbers that will let them leave. The windows are barred as well. An enigmatic spinning code dial and a mysterious book is all that you have to go on. Can you escape from this abandoned cottage?

In EXIT: The Game – The Abandoned Cabin, players must use their team spirit, creativity, and powers of deduction to crack codes, solve puzzles, collect objects, and earn their freedom bit by bit.
