The game is set around the Middle Ages, and your wife has been wrongly accused of witchcraft! She is being held captive in the baron’s castle and you only have 1 night to free her or she will be burned at the stake. You will discover hints by making puzzles and try to free her in time.
How to play?
When you open the box you will see six boxes with symbols of different shapes and colours. You also see a square with the same colours, lines and symbols with the letters A B C and D, two rulers, 10 hint coins and a piece of paper with the explanation of the game.
🧩 You read the story and the rules of the game and open the first box the manual refers to. Several boxes contain puzzles with rooms of the baron’s castle, that you search through for the next code. SO first you have to solve the jigsaw puzzle.
🧩 Then the story will give you the hints to find the solution for the code. The code consists of four pieces, which in turn lead to the next package that you can open.
🧩 This is how you puzzle through the story and solve the game. You score points by the time you spent and the number of hints you’ve used.
You can also play the game without time.
💡 OUR OPINION
Wow this was fun! We love games, puzzles and escape rooms and this is the perfect mix. The game is very well put together, the puzzles are completely different, both in terms of system and difficulty level. A number of times we needed hints, and they were very clear and guiding, without giving away the whole puzzle.
It is an evening wells spend, very challenging with 2 players and in our opinion also very nice to play solo. What we really enjoyed to see is that the score for 1 player has been adjusted and you have more time. Well thought out!
What we also like is that although the game can only once be played by yourself, you can package it well and pass it on so that someone else can play it again.
