Thoroughly enjoyed this game - it's a fun way to challenge the brain and have some fun.
I have played around 6 of these games and this one was the first one that got me hooked. The puzzles are really clever and you do literally use all game components to escape. Between the different games, there are always some different puzzles or way to solve the puzzles that keep this series engaging.
This particular version is the precursor to the "Forbidden Castle" (which from memory is also linked to another one of the locked room ones).
Like most of these escape/solving games, while the recommendation is 1-x players, I have found this plays best with 1-2 people as anymore and the group will take too long or others end up sitting around as you are only doing only 1-2 challenges at most at one time.
