    Our opinion:

    By Snow & Saol

    Here we are in front of the third and last room of The Box in Metz.

    A small drink and our FBI liaison agent comes to pick us up to explain that the situation is serious !

    We've infiltrated a Mexican cartel and, not very good as we are, they've unmasked us, handcuffed us and thrown us in a cell. In an hour, we will have some problems, but as we are outstanding agents, we will run away AND find out who are the key people of this cartel.

    I admit that our situation is rather delicate for a good moment (a padlock is going to get stuck, that's why I consider that we still win and that the DOJ will give us a few more minutes (I thank him for that, because he will have placed our fun above time, and that's cool).

    We're going to rummage, find a lot of things, combine, think, manipulate, but not always in the right way. Our liaison agent helps us with clues transmitted by talkie (maybe it's because we kept this kind of communication means that we were spotted by the cartel...).

    Most of the riddles are in the theme without being coherent with the story and neither immersive. I admit that unfortunately, this room is the one we liked the least in this sign, which is nevertheless really of quality. Above all, there is an element of décor that is not at all integrated into the setting.

    There are however some funny and cleverly made elements and the end is really stressful:

    In summary:

    This room is nice for a group of friends who want to be immersed in the world of a Mexican cartel and discover the different members of this organization. As far as we're concerned, the subject may not really suit us to take us on a trip and the decoration didn't make us travel either, but it's very personal.

    + We enjoyed +

    • 'The story of the members of this cartel that we are discovering as time goes on...
    • Tricky puzzles
    • A present and interesting searching
    • The tracking system

    - We didn't like -

    • the sound environment that is too discreet
    • Decoration that is not always neat and tidy
    • Not very immersive puzzles, even if they're in the subject matter.
