Alpha Escape – Check-Inn Only
Alpha Escape is located in Newmarket as a single unit in a strip plaza. We heard about this escape from some friends who live in the area. We had with us “Team Bammer” which was #REDivas + E4G’s Leader + Benson + emspace with us. As with all new locations we were hopeful, but cautious.
Long story short: You are investigators looking into mysterious murders…
Creativity and Design: Did it sell the story / theme?
Summary: A solid attempt at immersion
+ For the most part, the room was well designed. Good props throughout

– missing some finishing touches that would enhance immersion
Bells and Whistles: Was it more than lockboxes?
Summary: High and low tech solutions were fun
+ No tech hiccups
+ fun and intuitive gameplay components.
+ The last puzzle has a low-tech but creative puzzle.
Intuitive: Did you have to be inside the designer’s mind to solve it?
Summary: Straightforward game with no complaints.
+ An in-game indication for how many hints you’ve used
+ The game was easy enough that we didn’t need any hints, we ended up getting the record for the room.
Staff Support/Price : Were they friendly? Were they helpful? What was the Damage?
The GM were friendly and excited to talk about their rooms. Their Lobby was a bit drafty for a winter day, but we all had our coats on anyway.
Overall: Check-Inn Only was a good first attempt at a room for Alpha Escapes, with some more polish they could stand out better.
