I suppose that everyone has heard of the Escape Rooms, those real-life rooms where a team of players get locked and have to work together to find hidden clues and objects in order to escape. Now, ThinkFun brings those Escape Rooms and the excitement of them on our table!

The story goes like this. It’s the year 1913 and you are the lucky winner of a free stay at Foxcrest Retreat. It is place of relaxation run by Dr. Gravely, who has made sure that the best spa treatments will be available for those of a high social status. However, when you get there, you and your fellow guests soon realize that this place is not the relaxation retreat you had in mind and that you have been trapped in there.

So, all of you have agreed to work together in order to unravel the dark mystery of Dr. Gravely’s retreat by finding clues and solving puzzles. But you don’t have much time and the clock is ticking. Will you manage to discover the secret and get out of there before it’s too late?
