How can you manipulate the past without destroying the future? That is the question we face in Opus Magnum as private detectives. We were commissioned by a descendant of a renowned Czech scientist, to search for the result of the life’s work, a discovery that could turn the world upside down and have unforeseeable consequences for the whole of humanity.
The introduction to Opus Magnum was done by an in-character game master and allowed us to immerse ourselves into the game. The decoration is to the high quality we have come to expect from the Chamber, visually very appealing and with a lot of attention to detail.
I liked the game! The storyline is well reflected in the individual settings. Besides, I’m always pleased when I come across puzzles in a game that I’ve never seen before.
It’s just a pity that at the beginning, in the office, we got stuck on a puzzle and hesitated too long to ask for a hint. This lost us time, which we then missed in the more impressive second part of the game.
Not quite as spectacular as the two Haunted House themes from The Chamber, but definitely recommended (for 3-4 players).
