In Maritime Mutiny, Escape Room Herndon nailed the classic thematic escape room style. The story was present, but this game was all about solving puzzles in a compelling environment. It was a ton of fun. This game is a regional standout, and if you’re nearby, absolutely go play it.
My word of caution is to consider whether you want to tackle the bonus puzzles. They were a serious leap in difficulty and brought a change in tone that, for us, didn’t do the game any favors. They were certainly solvable, but we would have been happier walking out of the game with the vibe of the base game’s conclusion instead of the studious tone of the bonus puzzles.
Who is this for?
- Adventure seekers
- Story seekers
- Puzzle lovers
- Scenery snobs
- Any experience level (newbies will want a larger team)
- Players who don’t need to be a part of every puzzle
- Fantastic puzzles
- Compelling ship set
