Having played Pie & Mash shop first, this felt like a step down.

The host at Do Stuff was still helpful and fun.

It’s a cosy room, and you’re thrown into the action quite quickly. It is packed with puzzles and clues. Some of these progress the narrative, while others didn’t really work at all. It still has one of the most memorable puzzles I’ve ever had. 


I was a little fluey, which made me a little impatient during the middle of the room. But the room is well designed that the adrenaline pumped.

Of the two rooms, I much preferred Pie & Mash to this. Plenty of fun puzzles to be had here though. I’d love to play a tweaked / updated version of this room, and can’t wait to try Do Stuff’s third room.
