Escape From Camelot: an Escape the Crate Review
Description (from Escape the Crate website):
You have been invited to a grand tournament in the legendary Camelot to compete against Sir Lancelot. When you arrive, however, you discover that the kingdom is in chaos. King Arthur has gone missing and the mythical “round table” has been broken into 4 pieces. It is up to you to take on 4 quests to reassemble the table and to restore Camelot to glory. Can you pull the sword from the stone, vanquish a dragon, match wits with Merlin, or battle your way to victory? Encounter characters like Merlin, Guinevere, Mordred, Lancelot, and Morgan Le Fay as you attempt to figure out what is real and what is legend. Be careful though…. with every passing minute, the darkness around Camelot grows.
Thoughts about this mission:
There are 4 mini mysteries in this box and such a great theme, I couldn’t wait to get started on this box.
There were 4 of us working on this box, me, my brother and his wife and my mother. They are all King Arthur fans and know all the stories and the characters. I don’t know much about King Arthur and the stories but I still loved this mystery or mysteries since there were so many in this box.
There were a few hard puzzles in this one but it was great to have some other people working on this because they figured out how to solve them and we really only used a hint or two just to kind of point us in the right direction.
We did all the mysteries in one night and it didn’t take too long, probably a total of 2 1/2 to 3 hours. My brother wasn’t leaving until we completed the mystery and reassembled the round table, plus he didn’t want to miss the part where the dragon was used.
A lot of this was online, the audio files of each page and most of the pages if not all had a video to watch that told more of the story. This was great for working with a group so everyone could hear and watch instead of someone reading it all or taking turns to read.
This was a great box and cool theme, overall it ended up being one of my favorites and everyone enjoyed it and it was their first mystery box.
