In Break Free, up to four players are linked via locked handcuffs. You have to be the first to unlock yourself and Break Free, to win a round. To play, insert a maze cylinder into each of the four handcuffs. You can choose easy (green) medium (yellow) or advanced (red). Link all four cuffs together, and then lock yourselves in.
Each player has a key, and the first player to solve the maze and, you guessed it, break free, is the winner of the round. But here's what you can't see. To work the maze successfully, you have to feel your way through it. The tip on the key follows a track inside each cylinder, and when you successfully get to the bottom, you'll spring the lock and be liberated!
This is a great social game, and players of all ages can get into it, so it's great for families, too. Plus, because you're moving and trying to figure it out, and because there may be more than one path through the maze, the game is different every time you play. There's a lot of trial and error, which only builds the tension as you play. And you can learn a trick or two from the best spies in the business...keep your cool even in the most anxious situation.
Any player with an ability to understand mazes and the dimensionality of the challenge will do well with this.
This is part of a new collection of games called Spy Code, and we can't wait to try them all out.
