Mind The Game – The Crazy Prof – 8.5/10
Willesden Green, London.
For centuries, people all around the world were trying to create the eternal life serum. A well-known scientist was working on a project in his secret laboratory with the aim of creating the most powerful vaccine ever discovered. It would bring youth, immortality, and everlasting happiness to mankind. But sadly, it all went wrong…
The professor has disappeared and the serum is unfinished!!! In this state, it is extremely dangerous and could lead to a biological disaster.
By solving puzzles, hints, and clues, you’re able to save the world and stop the serum from ending up in the wrong hands. This is a race against time that’s guaranteed to be entertaining and interesting.
Our lovely, welcoming host greeted us and we had a really good chat while waiting for the last 2 members of our team to arrive. We had the usual introduction and entered the room. It was quite dark but well decked out with a variety of curios that piqued our interest.
We loved this game. It’s somewhere in between classic and technological (but not technology that will let you down) and was full of things that we’d never seen before, although admittedly some of which we have seen since. The whole thing was just fun to play, with a variety of puzzles where the solutions were actually obvious what they were for as opposed to some rooms where you figure out a code and try 18 different locks it might relate to.
We think that most people should enjoy this game. Teams of 2-5 would be a good number.
