The Chemist’s Conundrum
You are a group of the world’s top chemists, but your careers have ground to a halt.
Recently you’ve noticed a consistent stream of ground breaking research papers from a man known as Dr Vincent MacAlastair.
Intrigued, you applied to work alongside MacAlastair and successfully made it to the interview stage!
There’s only one issue… Dr MacAlastair is reportedly completely mad.
When you arrive at the interview you’re bustled into a room with the group you’re in now.
Dr MacAlastair says a few introductory words, and then excuses himself to go to the toilet.
As he exits you hear the slam of the door, a cry of “read the letter with a circle” and then silence disturbed only by a slight hissing.
Can you solve the puzzles left for you by Dr MacAlastair to escape the room in time and win the job?

We found all the details we were meant to but had no idea what to do with them without the hints. There wasn’t enough of a narrative to take us through the game.
We’ve never played an escape room game like this, so we weren’t on the wave length.
Wasn’t difficult but wasn’t clear in what you needed to do and in which order
Great idea and thoroughly enjoyable. 5 of us did it, me; wife; 2 daughters and granddaughter and we all really enjoyed it. Needed a bit of help so used some of the clues but done it in just over the hour. Really gets the grey matter going. Shall be getting the elf one next !! 100% recommend this.
Very interesting and fun game. Was a bit hard to figure it out, took us more than an hour. We did it with my kids, 9 and 8 years old. They were very excited about solving it.
This was the first time we had attempted any type of escape room.
We struggled initially but gradually got better and managed to solve it although in just over an hour.
It was a fun experience and we would buy again.
