Confundrum – New Haven

Confundrum is located in Burlington Ontario.  This time we had the full #REDivas teams tackle their latest room, New Haven.

Long story short:  You are up and coming offices investigating into the “New Haven Orphanage Disappearances”.

Creativity and Design: Did it sell the story / theme?
Summary: A strong set design with good props

+ impressive set design details that help sell a creepy and worn-in orphanage.
+ good use of props and environmental factors through most of the game.
+ an in-game actor added to the immersion and doubled as a hint system.

Bells and Whistles: Was it more than lockboxes?
Summary:  Good tech usage to enhance the immersion

+ A great use of ‘low tech’ to start out the room
+ Overall intuitive use of tech with obvious feedback.
+ No tech issues

:  Did you have to be inside the designer’s mind to solve it?
Summary: An overall smooth room, with some minor polish needed

+ Most puzzles were mostly straightforward
– We did require 3 hints, some puzzles needed some more direction.
+ The in-game actor hint-system was effective.

Staff Support/Price : Were they friendly? Were they helpful? What was the Damage?

Our GM was very friendly and provided a great customer service.  Confundrum offers post-game popcorn, which made #REDivas Errol more excited than normal.  Overall a great customer experience.

Overall:  New Haven is a solid addition to the Confundrum repertoire.  If you are there, we highly recommend pairing this with Twisted Woods for fun afternoon/evening.
