Blackbeard’s Brig Escape Room ReviewPrice: $29 per Person
BOOK THIS ROOM
In Blackbeard’s Brig, you start your heroic journey of escape within the bowels of the Queen Ann’s Revenge. As you sneak into the stern of the ship, you enter the pirate hold complete with unlucky landlubbers! From top to bottom, Blackbeard’s Brig is a shipshape game with sturdy wooden walls and well-lit rooms. As you near your escape players need all hands on deck to blow some sand off the beach. This room is well built and fun to play.
Story: You have been sentenced to spend the rest of eternity imprisoned in Blackbeard's Brig. However, you have been informed that if you can solve a series of clues and puzzles an xscape is possible. Blackbeard has left the ship to pillage and plunder Saint Augustine, you have 60 minutes to find your way out... Do you have what it takes to Xscape?
Immersion: Blackbeard’s Brig is well built, however; these are the cleanest pirates we have come across! The lighting could be dimmed to add that below deck feel to the room. The Escape Crusaders were hoping for some creaking-water-dripping-pirate-singing sound effects. The room is so beautifully put together it feels a bit like a luxury liner more than a pirate ship.
Game Style: Escape
Game Flow: The game flow is slow and steady like a leisurely ride on the open ocean. There are some great references to classic pirate films!
Puzzles: The puzzles are well done and creative. There are definitely some hands on activities in this game that are fun to play and watch!
Game Master: The Game Masters involvement is minimal but they do help direct the flow as you try to exit the ship. The goal is to escape and the game masters steer teams to the end!
Group Size Suggestion: 2-6
Final Thoughts: Remember pirates are sneaky and good at hiding things!
