Gribar is a brilliant inventor dwarf who made inventions with the help of Brod. At some point, however, Gribar has apparently gone crazy and has made an invention with which he wants to take over humanity and rule the world. Brod didn’t want to help him, so Gribar took him prisoner in his dungeon. Brod then sent a letter to the king asking him to send us to help him thwart Gribar’s malicious plans.
Our intoxicating fantasy adventure begins in the gloomy dungeons of Dorar Castle, where we try to free Brod the prisoner and thus support the rebellion that is supposed to restore the balance in the land that has been shaken by Gribar’s megalomaniac plans.
If you are not into horror and you ask for good, immersive puzzle rooms in Athens, the name “Rebellion” will undoubtedly be mentioned. We visited CLOCK Escape Games in Agia Paraskevi, a suburb 10 km northeast of Athens, and now we know why that is the case. The reception and hospitality was excellent. First of all we could make ourselves comfortable on the large sun terrace, have a drink and chat with the hosts. The same applies to the debriefing, which again took place on the cozy terrace. The guys listened to us and were interested in our feedback, which all together creates a feel-good atmosphere.
The imaginative and made with love handmade set along with the medieval atmosphere takes us instantly into another time. Storytelling, lighting, appropriate music and sound effects also contribute to an immersive 90-minute experience. The level of difficulty of the original puzzles – a good mix of mechanisms and padlocks of various types – all of which are in concept, ranges from medium to challenging. Searching, observing and collaboration are usually the keys that help to solve these tasks. The actor, who embodies the Brod, interprets his role very well, also supports the mission to the best of his ability (with the right amount of attention and without disturbing) and provides both entertainment and a good game flow.
All these aspects make Rebellion a must play puzzle room for 3-4 brave warriors.
