Mysterious Contents of the Drawer

I was actually considering getting “Escape the Room: Mystery at the Stargazer’s Manor” for my birthday, being both a present and a fun thing to do, but then I got really excited about it and we ended up just booking an actual Escape Room for the day (hour).

All of which goes to say we haven’t actually played it. But it sure looks like fun, and it’s a great idea for a game. Unless you have over-enthusiastic friends.

Unfortunately, this week’s blog post was defeated by poor time-management on my part, so I have to wrap it here. However, I invite everyone to come up with some ideas as to what you think was in the drawer, and I look forward to hearing what you all come up with.

    Monopoly… *shudders at thought*

    • Brilliant, I love that! – Monopoly, our shameful secret . . .

    Didn’t you kill one of your friends in a comic once? Is it his body in there?

    • Brilliant, I love it!
      Also, what? No, nobody’s dead. I don’t know what you’re talking about. There’s no evidence. I deny everything.

    Escape the Room: Mystery at the Stargazer’s Manor is fun, and the story elements in the game make it very thematic, but man was the game easy. I played with my nephews aged 10 and 13 and we plowed through the game in under 45 minutes. Hopefully the next one delivers on it’s promise to be harder because that is the only thing holding this game back from being truly amazing.

    • I was reading reviews while writing the comic, and that is the one flaw that kept coming up -pretty much everyone found it too easy. Hopefully it is something they can address as they put more out.

    anatomically correct meeples.

    • I … I actually have no reply to that. I tip my hat to you, sir, and know that that image may never leave my mind.

        Your welcome, my work here is done.

    Your secret Armada collection. You cracked like I did and went all in, didn’t you? Please say you did? I don’t want to feel alone in how deep-end I’ve gone with this one in such a short time…

    • What have you done? How far down the rabbit hole did you go? Do you still have a roof over your head? Are you living on the streets of Limerick playing games of Armada for cash in seedy back alleys?

        I may have bought at least one of everything already; in some cases two…

        …and custom cut foam for storage…

        …and a special box for holding the ship cards… BUT THAT’S ALL.

        …I may be looking at ordering custom tokens/rulers.

          (I may have spent a few hours building a custom table topper to fit full size games on our smaller kitchen table)

          • Good grief, man. It’s worse than I thought. You’ve gone in deep. There may be no saving you now…

          • Dexter Ó Thuithear

            Mistakes were made…

    Happy birthday!

    From the glow, I think you must have an open gate to let the elder gods into the world.

    • We would never do such a thing! We like to keep our pagan elder god worshipping to ourselves. We don’t like to push our dark, apocalyptic, sense-shattering, nihilistic religion on others. That would be rude. Besides, when Cthulhu comes, he will eat everyone equally, with no concern for belief or creed.
