Product Description:

The goal of this particular game is to rescue someone from the catacombs (a burial place deep below the city of Paris, France.) You have to solve a code correctly. If you get the code wrong, you may summon a demon by mistake. There are several images along the way referencing the demons. These include symbols and one particularly scary image of a face. It is very creepy and exciting, but we want you to be aware of this content ahead of time.

Publisher Description:

Gloomy crypts lie under the city of Paris. The catacombs swallow city light, riddles, and, apparently, also people. After the mysterious disappearance of a friend in the catacombs, you and your team embark on a search party, making your way through the puzzling underground labyrinth. Will you be able to find your friend in time and escape this cavernous world of darkness? This double-sized EXIT game is presented in two separate parts.

Difficulty: 4.5 of 5

Category Description for Exit: The Game:

Escape rooms are a real treat. Being trapped in a mysterious room with your friends and family...knowing that anything around you could be a clue to a convoluted riddle...the pressure of the clock counting down...and driving back home with hours of discussion of what you could have done differently. Unfortunately, most of us don't get to do escape rooms very often. But if you enjoy the type of logic involved in escape rooms, you'll probably like these games which are also a fraction of the cost! Having done a real escape room, I can tell you that the puzzles in these games are just as complicated as the real thing, and as a bonus, don't require an app or batteries. All you need are a few pencils, paper pads, a timer, and a pair of scissors. In the game box, you'll find riddle cards, answer cards, help cards, a booklet, a decoder disk, and some "strange objects" which you'll use in puzzles later in the game. Like a typical escape room, your first move is to take a look around the "room" to find clues & riddle cards. The puzzles involved are an interesting mix of logic, leaps of logic, and activities. Word scrambles, dot-to-dots, magic eye pictures, word riddles, scraps of letters and numbers, chemical tables, etc. are just some of the various "pieces" of the head-scratching brain teasers you may encounter. When you think you have figured a riddle out, you can check your answer by entering it into the decoder disk; it will tell you if you were right, wrong, or maybe correct and move you along in the game. If you get stuck, you can always consult the help cards for clues. When you and your friends have solved the last puzzle, you're done! Check your score by seeing how long it took you and how many help cards you had to use. It's worth noting that each title is for one play only, since you will mark up, tear, fold, and cut the materials. Each scenario has a difficulty score from 1-5, easiest to hardest. Game times average 1-2 hours.

Demonic references are not family friendly
I love the exit games, but this particular one is gross. All the demonic stuff is over the top and not suitable for families. I’d recommend avoiding this one.
