I promised to talk about more original ideas for going out. So after trying one of these mind games which are in full swing, I’m about to tell you why you absolutely need to try it. This is almost real! Little throwback: I tested the Brainscape located in the city of Rouen (Normandy) which was inspired by the history of the area.Our game turned around Jane of Arc’s universe. To have so much fun, the prices can go from 18 to 25 euros, according to the size of the group (the more people you got -> the cheaper it is) and the schedule.
Roughly, I’m going to explain the game: we are locked up in a room and we have to solve puzzles which allow us to get out! Easy? Nope. It was kind of creepy and it was the softer one. Honestly, the awesome thing is to see how your friends respond to stress. Who is useless? Who becomes the Alpha? And the most important, who watch the chrono? No really. Because we were like “Oh one hour, it’s easy…”. We didn’t finish the puzzle. Losers! I love to win so I’m still sensitive about that loss! Snif…
Unfortunately, I can’t go deep into the details but I can assure you that the puzzles and the guessing mess up with your head! Sometimes, we rowed, we screamed of joy or on each others but it was AWESOME! And there was a moment when I freaked out and I swear my brain ran away faster than my body…
I recommand it highly to you. I want to go there again but in a creepier universe, to feel myself badass again! I need to say to you little adventurers: “May the odds be even in your favor”
