The last thing I said to the owner of Sulaco before leaving the venue after the room was, with all of my heart, “go to hell”. That was probably the first time I’ve ever said that to an owner, and he truly deserved it. In the most positive way possible.
Spaceship escape rooms are usually quite identical to each other. Press buttons, press more buttons, maybe go on an expedition on a foreign planet, etc.
This room was very different. The game master (in this case the owner) masterfully ran the game. From the first moment we entered the venue, it was very clear that this is about to be a very special experience. While solving puzzles and progressing with our mission, he managed to create a situation where during the game he can annoy us, disturb us, and really make us want to curse him – while laughing our asses off. In other words, this game was basically one of the funnier ones I’ve had in a long while. The game is fun, special, crazy once in a while, and easily my favorite space ship game yet, by a margin. Even when Covid made the owner face some challenges, the owner managed to adapt the room in a way that, honestly, improved it even more.
