Tombstone was a solid escape game set in an unusual environment, a wild west town at night.
I’ll shoot you straight. The reason to play this particular escape game are a couple of really cool cut-scene moments. Be cautioned, however, because they are both “blink and you missed them” scenes. So please call out your solves to your teammates.
Beyond these key scenes, Tombstone is a good game, but unremarkable. And as for the wild west town… I found myself wishing that we could see inside of more of the businesses on the street.
Tombstone is in the same Maze Rooms location as Whatever Happened To The Garretts, and in my opinion, that’s the stronger of the pair. If you’re already visiting for Whatever Happened To The Garretts… tacking on Tombstone ain’t a bad idea. There certainly were puzzles worth solving in this wild west town.

It was 1881 and Wyatt Earp, his two brothers, and Doc Holliday had just gunned down most of our gang at the OK Corral. Those that they didn’t gun down had been taken to jail and would have a date with the gallows in the morning, unless we could pull off a jailbreak and ride off into the sunset.
