It’s no secret that we love a good game night and the Escape the Room type events and activities are super popular right now so we were excited to check out a new game from ThinkFun called Escape the Room: Mystery at the Stargazer’s Manor. They sent us one to try out and share our thoughts with you.
I had one boy that was excited and another who wasn’t as excited to be joining in on family game night on this particular night. This game can be played with your family for a game night like we did or for a full blown super fun themed game night with your friends.
We decided to try it out with the family so we could let you know how it was.
It is SO much fun. It took us most of the time (you can set a timer to see if you can solve it in time) because we stopped to serve dinner, but everyone got involved and were totally into it by the time we were done.
The boys were talking about how they wanted to set up a whole themed night now and be the hosts for their friends to see if they could solve it.
It’s definitely for older kids (suggested age 10+) because some of the clues need some different types of thinking to solve. It’s a really fun story, great puzzles and an interactive game to play with your family and friends.
The game website has instructions to package the game back up so you can pass it along to your friends and family. It’s a good price too considering the price of going to one of the event places and would be such a fun night for kids or several families to do together.
They are working on some new stories and the boys already asked if we could get them!
