I often avoid ancient Egypt-themed escape rooms as many tend to feel quite similar to each other, but Path of the Gods differentiated itself from the pack. The puzzles in Path of the Gods included some substantial layered solves which meaningfully drew from ancient Egyptian culture and mythology as inspiration. Though the core premise — hieroglyphs that translated to English and the presence of puzzles in an ancient Egyptian tomb — was still quite fantastical, the puzzle and interaction mechanics themselves strongly reinforced the ancient Egypt theme in interesting ways.
When David and Lisa played Conundrum Escape Rooms’ Experiment C73 in 2019, they noted how it “took some design risks that paid off profoundly.” Upon playing Experiment C73 myself, I similarly marveled at its humor and bold experimentation. And with Path of the Gods, Conundrum Escape Rooms demonstrated a new facet of their scrappy ingenuity. Whereas Experiment C73 played mind games with its innovative game structure, Path of the Gods put some innovative twists on the classic escape room theme of an ancient Egyptian tomb.
Path of the Gods was fun, exciting, and novel to my team of experienced, slightly jaded escape room enthusiasts. If you are visiting Colorado, make sure to play both Path of the Gods and Experiment C73 at Conundrum Escape Rooms.
