Duration:
45 min
Roomy:
No
Constrained:

Language:
English
Clues:
2 (Delivered in person, when called through a provided walkie-talkie)
Official Description:
You are a Crime Scene Investigator that must document a recent killing that took place in the study of an eccentric and well known entrepreneur. He is the owner of Cromwell toys, a company well known for its puzzles and games.
As you begin to investigate the crime scene, the door to the study slams shut. Over the intercom you hear a voice "I will be back to deal with you shortly."
Who is this mysterious voice you hear? Will you be able to solve the crime and escape before he returns?!
Played in:
Spring 2016
Made it?
YES - about 12 minutes left - used one clue
Verdict:
We did this room as part of my "nerdy bachelor party", and once again it was a great experience. I now recommend Jigsaw to anyone looking for an Escape Manor alternative.
Even though we were told this room was tougher (with a 10% success rate), we breezed through most of it, ending up in the top 10, according to the attendant.

Nous avons joué cette aventure durant mon "enterrement de vie de garçon de nerd", et une fois de plus ce fût une très belle expérience. Je recommende désormais Jigsaw pour quiconque cherchant une alternative à Escape Manor.
Même si cette salle est plus difficile (un taux de succès de seulement 10%), nous l'avons fait avec aisance, dans le top 10 des meilleurs temps, selon notre accompagnateur.
