Unlock! An Escape Game

The Series is very fittingly titled Unlock! and is a cooperative card game inspired by escape rooms that use a simple system of cards which allows players to search scenes, combine objects, and solve riddles. This game provides players with a unique experience that feels remarkably similar to a physical escape room. When players play Unlock! they get to embark on great adventures, while seated at in the comfort of there own home using only cards and an easy to use companion app available on both IOS and Android devices that can provide clues, check codes and monitor the time remaining before the game ends. This gives players the same time pressures they would experience in a physical escape room.

The game is suitable for 1 – 6 Players as recommended on the box in the past we at boooored have also tried adding more players to a campaign with one playthrough we even had 12 people playing. This strategy to increase the player count, however, it had its negatives just like the experience you would have if you added 12 people to a physical escape room this game is so much better when following this recommended player count. We found that adding all these additional players just becomes too crowded as people debate over what to do next or try to share as they observe the cards looking for hidden clues.

That being said if you have an extra player or two don’t feel like this game won’t work for your group as the player count really is flexible and our 12 players still had a fantastic time playing this game.

With all that being said the Unlock series of games are some of our favourite escape room’s in boardgame format we even wrote a whole post decided to the series that you can read here Escape Rooms You Can Play Without Leaving The House with new games being added to the series on an ongoing basis they can be a cheap way to have that ongoing escape room experience and are well worth the investment.

However, I can hear you say but this post promised us free print and play games. Don’t worry we did not forget Unlock has a bunch of demos that you can download and play for free. These are full adventures that will help you get a sense of what the series is about and are a great way to spend your Friday night. We do recommend if you really enjoy them I would make the investment in a full game to take it to the next level as the free campaigns are quite short in comparison and leave you wanting more.

I purchased this game for the first time we got three campaigns and played them over three weeks then ran a round-robin at a boardgame event allowing players to spend the whole night playing the three rooms in teams. With the Clear Favourite being the Squeek and Sausage Campaign, however, there was not a single disappointment but if you are looking for a challenge no team was able to complete Unlock: The Tonipals Treasure they all, however, had a great time trying.
