*Underground Murder – Virtual Escaping – Home Play Game*
Escapes On A Train. Well, a virtual train. And you don’t really have to escape, you just have to stop the murderer escaping. And it’s not really the Underground, more the Subway (not the sandwich shop). But, the good news, there is definitely a murder. Possibly not such good news for the victim. Oh, just read the review, here.
*Who Killed Bugsy Marlowe? – Great Scott Escapes – Home Play Game*
The year, 1937. The scene, three clueless dames trapped in a classy hotel with a corpse, a murderer and more clues than a Raymond Chandler hot dream. Enter, our hero (from IT) to save us from a terrible fate…
*Unboxing The Mind Of A Cryptic Killer – Eleven Puzzles – Home Play Game*
We’ve played a wide range of online games during lockdown – I promise I’m trying to get more reviews up! This quirky game is definitely worth a look, for lovers of crime dramas, noirish detectives, nautical puzzles and bomb defusal (isn’t that everybody?)
Ram Raid – Escape Reading – Reading
Reading in Berkshire always sounds like such a genteel place, to me. Not known for smash ‘n’ grab, pocket the dosh, break the bank-type exploits.

Sherlock: The Game Is Now – Time Run – London
Lockdown sucks – it’s hard to get motivated writing about fabulous Escape Rooms when it seems like an age before we can play again. So, cheering myself up by reviewing one of our favourite games from earlier this year, when the world was normal.
We love, love, love Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock. So the official Escape Room of the series was a must play. Read more here…

Lockdown restrictions lifted – hooray! What scenario shall we play? Escaping from a prison cell, without leaving our homes, of course! To find out if these jailbirds were singing freely or remained caged, click here
CSI: Panic Room – Clue HQ – Harrogate
I’ve always liked the idea of playing detective. Too much 80s pop American crime drama and reading Harriet The Spy, I suppose. To see how we got on in Clue HQ Harrogate’s police investigation room, read on. Bring your best magnifying glass/bloodhound/pathologist/alcohol dependency issues with you.
The Great Train Robbery – Locked – Dunstable
Train games are like buses – wait ages for one train-themed room, then two come along at once… read more here
Crime Scene – Locked In North Wales – Abergele
Bit of confusion over this room – is it called Crime Scene or is it called CSI? Read here Aunty Ant’s investigation into this most perplexing of mysteries.
(Spoiler alert: we still don’t know the answer. Don’t let that stop you reading the review).
