This rogue life of room-escaping is really dangerous. How many times have we found ourselves on death row since we started this hobby? In this adventure by Woodbury, we played a group of Warriors arrested in the Wild West and were found guilty. But we wouldn’t sit waiting for execution. While a bunch of Bandits caused havoc storming the Police station, we found our opportunity to escape!

Warriors is one half of an very interesting concept by Woodbury: the same space actually hosts two different games. You can play as the Warriors, just arrested by the sheriff and waiting to be executed, or as Bandits, who want to recover confiscated money.

Both games run in the same room, but Bandits and Warriors do not happen at the same time – you choose one of the options when booking. It was very interesting to return to a known setting, but to face completely different challenges! Continue reading “Woodbury Escape Rooms: Wanted – Warriors [Review]”

The sheriff just confiscated all our money. All that we worked so hard to get! It was not easy to open that vault without making a noise, or to enter other people’s houses without being caught… But we won’t let it go easily. The sheriff is not the good lad he poses to be, he took our money into his private gambling den. His dirty little secret! We also know that he is busy arresting a bunch of Warriors, so we, the Bandits, will just enter the gambling place and retrieve our money before he returns!

The designers of Woodbury Escape Rooms came with an interesting concept for this room: it actually hosts two different games. You can play as the Warriors, just arrested by the sheriff and waiting to be executed, or as Bandits, who want to recover the confiscated money. We chose the latter, which we were told was slightly easier. Yeeeeehaaaaaa!
