Stolen is the escape room company's first print and play at home game that allows people to download it and play when and where they like - ideal for this lockdown situation.
Based on the same experience and conundrums to its games rooms, Stolen by Escape Hunt has a similar set-up, aimed at between two and four players with a target of completing it in one hour. The age guidance is for eight-year-olds and older.
A game pack cost £14.99 to download, which you then print at home. After experiencing a few of its escape rooms, I tested out the game and it had some refreshing touches.
Revolving around the game is an exciting storyline about five incredibly rare and valuable items being stolen in a recent spate of robberies.
All the evidence collected to date is included along with a list of the sneakiest thieves in all of Europe.
What you have to do is join the dots together, using the clues to work out which thief has taken which item and from where.
Obviously, there isn't the decoration and fanfare normally associated with escape rooms but it's a cleverly adapted game suitable to do at home. It comes down to mainly puzzles and logic with some intriguing evidence and mugshots that make it fun to do as a family, between friends or as a couple.
It could also be done on your own despite saying it is aimed at two people upwards.
Witness statements and mug shots add fun to the game
The difficulty level is mid-range and there are some nice technology touches that make you think outside the box. There are also a range of activities involved to solve the clues, like cutting things out, putting pieces together and working out patterns.
We tackled the game and completed it within an hour with two of us. There would be enough to do with more people but you wouldn't want for it to be more than four people - unless it was a family with younger children who were all tackling it together.
It's fun and intriguing and if you like puzzles and escape rooms, it's welcome relief during the lockdown.
