Escape Manor: Devil’s Advocate

“You should have known. A deal. A deal too good to be true. His face gloomy, eyes piercing, a slight curl to his lips. You should have known.”

Game experience: GOOD
A classical but professionally made 45 minutes long room that should be a perfect introduction for a group of 4 or 5 beginners. Despite the “devilish” theme, this room is not scary, just slightly gloomy at time.

The well-made change of atmosphere mid-way during the game.

No real scenario.

A well-thought parallel structure for large groups.

A good mix of classical puzzles of all kinds.

Many padlocks.

A very nice lobby where you can chill out and have a drink before and/or after your game.

Friendly gamemaster and owner.

The gamemaster did not follow our progression so closely.

One slightly malfunctioning mechanism.

Performance: Our team of 2 players (1 experienced, 1 beginner) failed to escape by a few minutes.

Elsewhere in the escape galaxy: Classical rooms of similar quality in Toronto include Asylum at the same venue or The Butcher at Roundabout, if you’re looking for a slight step ahead in terms of creepiness; or for example Pirate’s prize at Freeing Toronto Station, if you want to stay clear from the horror theme.
