Thames & Kosmos recently expanded its Exit Game range with three new titles: The Forgotten Island, The Polar Station and The Forbidden Castle. Each game is based around the same premise: players must work together to solve puzzles and riddles in order to get out of a locked room within a set time limit. The faster a team manages to escape, and the fewer hints they use in the process, the more points they are awarded.
In The Forbidden Castle, a group of up to four players is introduced to a story where they arrive at a deserted, mysterious castle where they find themselves trapped. Inspired by the escape room phenomenon, these games provide a group with a collaborative, challenging experience in the comfort of the home environment at a much lower cost.
