Phantom Joker Escape! ♡ ♢ ♤ ♧

Hi everyone! I was recently invited for a game experience by Nuffnang at the Phantom Joker Escape, which is a real escape game outlet that opened in Jan 2014 (: So, a real escape game is basically a setting where players have to solve clues/mysteries in a specific game setting in a set time limit.

I was quite looking forward to this event because I've played something similar before with the boyfriend and another couple as a double date activity heh!

Phantom Joker Escape is really cool because they offer "episodes" for players to explore and solve according to a single story line, instead of the usual different "rooms/scenarios" that other real escape game outlets offer! So basically, these "episodes" are linked to each other and it works together to solve the main mystery in the entire story.

Here are some visuals of the place:

Basically, the gist of the story is that you'll be playing the role of Carl, who's a FBI agent. Carl's brother, Brook, has disappeared mysteriously and is trapped somewhere. In order to rescue your brother, you'll have to go through and solve these episodes which the Phantom Joker Escape offers (: These include, breaking into a biochemistry company, exploring spooky alien worlds and even time-traveling to ancient times!

The episode that I tried was Episode 02 - The Fallen Star in the Ancient Villa! My group was supposed to find this secret evil source of power which traces back to ancient times, and we were brought into this dim room and given candle torches as lights to search for clues.

I really enjoyed my experience at the Phantom Joker as it utilizes high-tech machinery for players to solve certain parts of the mystery instead of just the usual lock-and-key puzzles. Players are also required to read through clues thoroughly and work together as a team, cause even the slightest details play a huge part in the entire story! (BIG HINT here hahaha)

And trust me, you'll be super in awe of the machinery that's put in place! All of us went like "OMG!" and let off frantic stifles when we managed to solve certain parts of the room hahaha.

Unfortunately, my group wasn't able to solve all of the parts of this episode, and the staff were really helpful in aiding and guiding us through parts of the episode when we were stuck! (: It's really fun and definitely a good bonding activity with friends or for corporate companies! Would definitely be back with my friends to try out the other episodes (:
