Another boxed escape game, Fire in Adlerstein! This one was very different to most of the boxed games I’ve played so far, but reminded me of good old murder mystery puzzle books. You know, the ones that give you a bunch of suspects and motives and you have to exclude them one by one to get to the one true killer.

Adlerstein comes along with a big folder full of evidence, and a letter by one of the suspects, pleading to help prove that he is innocent. It was so much fun to go through every single piece of information to build up theories and find concrete proof.

I very much enjoyed how this game is built mostly on paper with very few online resources to fill out the picture, there’s a lot to discover and many threads to follow to include or exclude a plethora of people in the victims life. It worked so well and the conclusion was built brilliantly. Definitely a very fun game with lots of twists and turns to discover.
