A classic tale of murder on the Orient Express, reimagined. The culprit of a grisly crime is still on board your train. It's a race against time to piece the clues together before the train reaches its destination. The case is perplexing, and you must solve it quickly so the assailant does not escape. Difficulty Level: 4 of 5.
I had read good things about this game and happened to be browsing through Target and picked this one up. I got together with 3 other escape room enthusiasts (over 100 escape rooms!) and WE ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS GAME! I still cannot stop thinking about how clever and fun it was. It took us 1hr 57min and we got the answer wrong but still had a blast! If you like hosting game nights and love solving puzzles, Dead Man on the Orient Express will not disappoint. I can't wait to play the rest of the Exit games. My only complaint is having to throw it away; I felt really wasteful and would have liked it if the game was less impactful on the environment.
We absolutely loved these games! They are only a one time use item but it really beats the escape room near where I live. For an hour it's $100 for four people! This game took us longer than an hour and at the $11 price tag it was less than $4 a player if you want to look at it that way. All in all we had a blast playing it and look forward to the next game night!
