Three More 'Escape Room' Games
Posted by William Niebling on December 10, 2018 @ 8:13 pm CT
Like earlier games in the series, Unlock! Exotic Adventures recreates the escape room experience in card game form, challenging players to complete a series of puzzles before time runs out (see "New Trio of ‘Unlock! Secret Adventures’").
The latest set of Unlock! games features more fantastic storylines and locations, earning them the subtitle of Exotic Adventures. The first, Expedition: Challenger, inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World, has players travel to that book’s mysterious plateau in search of a lost member of Professor Challenger’s expedition.
Drawing from the Tales of the Arabian Nights, Scheherazade’s Last Tale tasks the players to help the famous storyteller sort out one final story to tell the Sultan to save her from the executioner.
Each game is designed for 1 to 6 players, ages 14 and up, and takes one hour to play. A free Unlock! timer app is available for download for use with the game. MSRP is $14.99 each.
