Ambar: The Visit

This game is presented as the first beer-related escape game of Spain (Ambar is a beer brand), and even though I have stopped drinking beer many years ago, having a German group and not playing this game would have been sacrilege.

The game belongs to a Spanish-wide operating escape chain (Coco Room), which as far as I know have a few really nice games. This game can be played in three more cities (Bilbao, Valencia and Zaragoza) other than Madrid. For obvious reasons, the game is only suitable for 18+ years old.

Your mission is to find the secret beer recipe, as the brew master has disappeared. The game emulates really well a visit to a beer factory. Having visited one myself, I believe that without being a fantastic implementation, it is really well-done in the game. There were many good, original games, and your success will be rewarded (kind of obvious with what).

The main critical point (and someone warned us about it during the trip) is the lack of maintenance in the room. While it is only related to punctual things, I believe it is not serious and fair, not to invest in the necessary repairs to provide a flawless experience. Also, the fact that nothing was really major should really prompt the owners to do something about it.

Other than that, the game is fun, has quite a good flow, and all is thematically well-implemented. It is definitely a must for beer-loving escapers and even if you are not it is a refreshing (pun intended) game, as it is a topic that is not so widespread and provides a healthy dose of originality. Zum Wohl! (traditional German toast).
