REA Reaction

Escape from the Casino of Chaos was our favorite of the Professor Puzzle Quick-Fire Escape Rooms.

Thematically, it was a casino heist, which is pretty typical escape room fare.

A few of the puzzles stood out. They looked and felt like they belonged in the narrative environment and were generally amusing to solve.

While Escape from the Mall was the most straightforward installment, Escape from the Casino of Chaos was the most interesting. Since all of these games are fairly easy, I’d recommend the more interesting one. To be clear, this won’t blow your mind by any means; it’s just a solid, quick-play puzzle game. I think that it’s worth trying out because we don’t have a ton of low-commitment, quick-hit tabletop puzzle games… and I do think that it’s an interesting and worthy product category.

Story

It was time to gather the team and break into a casino vault. If all went well, we’d be living on a private island in no time.

Casino of Chaos puzzle envelopes include a roulette wheel, a card table, a slot machine, an elevator, a casino floor plan, and an exit map.

Analysis

➕ The puzzles in this game felt a bit more inventive than what we saw in the other 2 installments from the Quick-Fire Escape Room series. We were especially fond of the poker puzzle.

➖ With the roulette puzzle, we both solved it the same way independently of one another and got the same correct answer… but we’re not completely sure if we solved it the right way.

➕ The narrative was lean, but the puzzles thematically fit the scenario.
