Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! Games at Escape London just do not disappoint. Today marks #2 with the company – and we’re looking forward to coming back for #3 very soon.

Escape The Seven Seas begins with you and your crew locked up (separately, I might add!) By working together you come together and the puzzles then unfold non linearly.

There are two different rooms in this game and the themeing is fabulously pirate-like. From the eerie music to the whole room looking visually great. At one point we had to figure through rope knots. Later we had to solve something involving barrels of rum. Of course, at the end there is treasure! Lots of it! No ‘pretend’ treasure chest, with this one you can practically shower in gold coins. It’s great.

The only drawback of this experience was that they had some pretty bad technical difficulties on the day. Their camera feed broke so they were unable to see where we were, or what we were doing. The GM had to come into the room twice (first to tell us about the issue and second to give us a clue). But I won’t hold it against them, technical difficulties happen.

Escape the Seven Seas can be played at Escape London (Shadwell). Prices start at £23 pp.
