We played ‘Warped’ as a foursome and escaped with 5:35 left on the clock. The concept of the game was great but the room itself had many red herrings and a somewhat limited range of challenges. With four relatively experienced players in a small room, there was almost always one person twiddling their thumbs - this particular escape game would be better suited to three/two players.Rachel
The dreaded ‘death by padlocks’ phenomenon was very much present although Breakout Liverpool did use all types of padlocks at their disposal and provide the clues for opening those padlocks in a variety of ways.
Our Game Master (Chip) was lovely and asked us in advance how much we would like to be left to struggle before she dolled out clues - a mighty fine question which I personally believe ought to be addressed by Game Masters more often! That said, we did then spend ten minutes waiting for her to send us our first clue and very much got the sense that we were being paced, i.e. we had made it through to the hardest challenge too quickly and were therefore being made to wait so that we didn’t escape with an unreasonable amount of time to spare.
In summary, the room was completely adequate - every lock had a key and every riddle had a code. That said, the room could have been so much more had the company invested in more by the way of mechanics, puzzles and physical space.
