The Op says there are limited quantities available and that pre-orders are open on The Goonies game.
Not a board game, not even a card game, but an “at-home escape room”. Escape rooms, which were growing more popular before the lockdown, are team events at locations where players have puzzles to solve to get out.
Whether an at-home escape room has the same vibe or not, the idea of an at-home escape room certainly seems like an excellent way to entertain friends and family.
The Op have experience at this, though, and have done games like this before. The game uses puzzle solving to reveal codes. Designers Jay Cormier and Sen Foong Lim return after two previous successes.
In this third installation, you can play as Mikey, Brand, Mouth, Data, Andy, Stef, Chunk, and Sloth and go on a quest for One-Eyed Willy’s hidden treasure! Each character offers their own special skill as everyone must decode clues and get the answers needed to reach The Inferno. Just keep the dreaded Fratellis away from adding to the obstacles in this challenge that calls for the gang’s collective focus and dedication!
As it’s an escape room, you can play it alone. You can also have up to 11 other people join you unless you’re playing in this blogger’s room, as we’ll never get that many people in there.
The escape room series is part of The Op’s “Coded Chronicles” games due to the puzzle-solving for release code mechanics. Previously the company has released Scooby-Doo: Escape from the Haunted Mansion and The Shining: Escape from the Overlook Hotel.
