I admit I wasn't too keen on playing that room today.
You're probably gonna wonder why. Well, there are some themes that I'm not really excited about. No, it's not serial killers, ghosts or perverts that bother me. It's more dentists or vets. So when a friend books a room with the theme : vet and that falls the day when our dog : Jago (yes the one of our logo) is operated I am too exited about playing it. He's fine, he's back home, everything's back to normal.
But I really want to highlight the energy of Jayson, our Game Master and one of the 2 owners of Fuzzy Logic, because he made me spend a very good time in this room whereas I really didn't think I would laugh so much the night of the operation of our Jago.
Our team is very eclectic. 2 germans, 1 polish, 1 israeli and 1 serial-escaper meet (for some of them for the first time) to play together in the US. 2 of the players have exceeded 700 escapes and those who played the least are still at 70. You can imagine that we had a great time chatting after the room.
To play Fuzzy Logic in the state of Illinois you have to book (of course) and then connect to their zoom aproximatly 10 minutes before the booked time. They will also give you a special web page with pictures of the rooms and close-ups of the discovered objects (which makes solving the puzzles much easier).
The briefing is concise but precise, there is a logic to our absence in the places, everything makes sense. We are quickly plunged into the animal world in this room. All the puzzles are related to the clients of this clinic. They are diverse and above all numerous. It is a room that is not complicated, but you have to know how to observe and combine many objects. Code after code we enter into a real euphoria. I admit that I like the rooms that are so fluid, with puzzles that can suit beginners as well as more experienced players. We get a bit stuck on 1 or 2 puzzles and I like that the GM didn't help us without being asked. Sometimes he looks more or less consciously in the direction of the solution, but not here and that's really great.
Overall I liked this room, of course it could be modernized, but for a remote room it works incredibly well. My only regret is probably the lack of narrative progression, we don't really understand why this vet is so mean, but we find our cat and that's the most important thing in the end, isn't it?
In conclusion: we had a great time and we can only congratulate the managers for having the concern of our fun and for having had the initiative to propose their remote rooms.
