I really enjoyed playing The Cemetery Of The Knight! This game’s premise is that there is a legendary ruby hidden in the tomb of Sir Reginald Wreston. It can only be opened when the moon is at the exact right angle, which only happens every 87 years. Before getting to the tomb, a series of riddles and puzzles must be solved, but no one has ever been successful in the endeavor. You are tasked to measure your abilities against those who came before, and try to open the crypt and get to the ruby!
This is such a dark but really fun game. I loved the design and so many of the puzzles in this. There are so many physical tasks as well as logical ones, and the sequence of events really makes sense. Cemetery Of The Knight is really well designed and draws on so many tropes of legends and myths around knighthood and hidden treasure, it’s a delight.
It took me just over 45 minutes to solve with just one clue card. I love when games hit you with that wow moment of discovering an answer in an unexpected place. This one is definitely one of my favourite Exit games I’ve played so far, definitely recommend this for the more experienced player!
