The Panic Room – Resurgency – 7.5
Can you defeat B. Last at his own game? Defuse the bomb, or blow up under pressure!
In 2016, The Panic Room narrowly avoided catastrophe when notorious trickster and bomb-maker Brenden Last placed a live explosive in the room. Thankfully, a team of players were able to solve Last’s puzzles and defuse the bomb, thwarting his devious schemes. So that this never happens again, we’ve started a bomb defusal initiative back where it all started. You are our newest team of recruits to see if you have what it takes to work under pressure. But don’t panic, after all, it’s not a real bomb…
This 2-5 player sequel to Urgency is a blast from the past! An explosive 60 minutes of retro gamer fun for everyone, guaranteed to blow you away with lots of puzzles and interactive challenges!
Played – April 2019
Our host Georgina gave an enthusiastic intro to the game and set the scene.
We entered into a small room dimly lit with flashing lights. It was good for purpose but not thematically on par with some of the other panic room games.
There were a wide variety of puzzles and some different types of locks, one of which we hadn’t seen before. We had a couple of minor technical difficulties but nothing that couldn’t be fixed with a clue.
There was enough to keep the 5 of us busy and probably think this is a good number for the room. Maybe not the best room for beginners, but a great room for people wanting to test their communication skills!
