Qin Shi Huang was born into the Warring States era when seven states fought for supremacy in China. He subjugated the enemy states in several campaigns and thus brought about the unification of China, the first emperor of which he named Qin Shihuangdi. He was instrumental in building the Great Wall of China, which was to protect the Chinese Empire against the peoples from the north after expansion, and he also introduced a single currency and language in the various states. After his death, he was buried in an impregnable mausoleum, which is also preceded by a huge terracotta army that guards him.

Our mission, nothing easier than that, past the terracotta soldiers, to the emperor’s final resting place, and look for the legendary mask. 

As with the yellow room of this provider, we had to linger briefly in the anteroom (without seeing a GM) until we could open the door and this time, we had to follow the red lines. 

As far as the design is concerned, the rooms are beautiful, and the puzzles, although there may have been a few weaker ones, were coherent and well thought out. Everything fit the topic and the items were appropriate to the room. 

As three experienced players, we were well positioned as a team for this task. Even if the room, due to its dimensions, also seems to be suitable for larger groups, it should not be played in a much larger constellation. The game starts relatively parallel at first, but becomes increasingly linear towards the end. And then, in my opinion, there is simply not enough to do for 5+ people.

Except for a tip where we annoyed ourselves afterwards, we played without help and need with 40 Minutes just 2/3 of the time. But we had fun. So far, Experience Red is unfortunately only playable in Spanish. There were some passages where you have to read something. But if you have someone on the team who can translate Spanish, you can play the rooms well without being too lengthy.
