Room name:
The Cabin

Jigsaw Escape, Ottawa (http://jigsawescape.com)
# of Players:
2-6 (Played with 6)
Duration:
45 min
Roomy:
No
Constrained:
Yes
Language:
English
Clues:
2 (Delivered in person, when called through a walkie-talkie found in the room)
Official Description:
You and your friends are on an evening hike in Gatineau Park when you hear a scream off-path and decide to investigate.
That is the last thing you remember.
When you wake up, you are in a mysterious cabin with no clue of how you got there. Something feels off. There is blood on the walls. Suddenly, 45 minutes begin counting down on a clock.
Realizing you are in a killer’s lair, you must find a way to escape before he returns and you all are his next victims. Will you survive?!
Played in:
Fall 2015
Made it?
YES - less than 10 min left - used both clues
Verdict:
Another popular trope (trapped by a serial killer), but one very nicely rendered.
A room like that could be a mere succession of lock and keys, but I was pleasantly surprised to encounter some locks I simply didn't know existed.

Verdict:
Un autre cliché populaire (nous sommes prisonniers d'un tueur en série), mais un cliché fort bien rendu.
Une salle de ce genre pourrait n'être qu'une succession de clés et de cadenas, mais j'ai été agréablement surpris de découvrir certains types de cadenas dont j'ignorais carrément l'existence.
