How to Play: Pogs

June 30, 2018

Our How to Play videos are designed to be short (but still complete) instructional videos, mainly for people who want an overview before playing with someone who knows how to play (in place of that person teaching the rules). Setup and refresh is usually in a separate video, since only one person needs to know the details.

Unfinished Case of Holmes Review

June 8, 2018

by Ambie Valdés
Note: I received a free review copy of Unfinished Case of Holmes from iDventure.

If you don’t know, I’m a huge fan of Escape Rooms and Escape Room type games. As of writing this, I’ve played six Exit: The Game games, six Unlock games (all the ones released before 2018), the four cases from the base game of Escape Room: The Game, and almost 20 actual Escape Rooms (and probably some other things that I’m forgetting). So… I like those types of games.

Unfinished Case of Holmes is another Escape Room type game with puzzles centered around you trying to resolve an unsolved murder from over 100 years ago. It uses an app along with the printed game materials, and the timed mode gives you two hours to complete the case.
