As Ben wrote earlier this Summer, EXIT: The Game was awarded the Kennerspiel des Jahres, the best “expert game” of 2017.
Thames & Kosmos have wasted no time capitalising on the accolade by announcing the release of three new EXIT scenarios for you and your friends to work through.
In The Forbidden Castle, you’ll play as hikers trapped inside a strange castle trying to find your way out. This challenge though is full of riddles and freedom may not be in the direction that players first think.
In The Forgotten Island, you’ll find yourselves in the direst of situations as you end up shipwrecked with the only hope for escape, a chained up boat. It turns out a mysterious owner has left puzzles around the island leading, hopefully, to the boat’s release and escape.
Reminding me very much of Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell, players in The Polar Station have been left behind during a frantic evacuation. With only one hour to crack the lock program, a single code stands between them and being trapped for good.
As a cheap at home form of entertainment, I am very much behind the current batches of escape room games we are seeing. I know Warren picked up EXIT: The Game – The Pharaoh’s Tomb for his holidays and we have talked about getting it into the office.
Would you like to see a Let’s Play of us all scratching our heads and high-fiving for solving the easiest of puzzles?
