Get your friends together to solve a mystery with the Escape the Room: Secret of Dr. Gravely's Retreat. This game is based on popular escape room experiences where players are locked in a room for a set amount of time and must find clues and hidden objects to ultimately escape the room. This game plays the same way except you're not actually locking anyone in a room.
The game is a sequel to ThinkFun's Stargazer's Manor game, and it has a more challenging and spookier storyline for advanced players. Because this is a group party game, you'll need between three and eight players. Once all players have assembled and the game host reads aloud the scene card 1: arrival, start the timer. If you have three to five players, give yourself two hours. For six to eight players, set it for 1.5 hours.
There are four sealed envelopes with mysterious secret items inside. You won't be able to open the envelopes until you work together as a team to uncover clues and solve codes. Solving codes requires the use of the solution wheel. You simply rotate the four colored rings to line up four solution symbols with the white symbol from the envelope puzzle you're trying to solve. If you guess a correct solution, you'll see the envelope symbol appear through two windows in the middle of the solution wheel. That means you can then move on in the game. Or perhaps escape the room. But can you do it before time runs out?
The game comes with an instruction manual, a scene card 1: arrival, four sealed envelopes (The Desk, The Safe, The Alcove, and The Laboratory Door), mystery items inside each envelope, and a solution wheel. You'll also need a timer, paper, and pencils. If you want to access online hints during the game, make sure you have a computer, tablet, or smartphone with an internet connection nearby.
