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?

Murderous scallywag - Puzzles were challenging for the 2 of us, but not impossible. Hardest bit was the order and location at the end… had us stumped and needing a clue!
Struggled a little to work out what the way into the game we played was and I felt like we needed to use the hints, especially at the start just to work out what was going on. Could maybe do with a bit more story/focus. That said, it was a fun puzzle and I did enjoy it.
We played without a GM as there were only 4 of us. It was our first time of playing and we found it easy to follow whilst making us think hard about some of the solutions. Having told some friends about it they want to play and I’ll be their GM. 10/10.
We enjoyed playing this, was a nice activity to do as a couple, would certainly recommend!
A good range of puzzles, not too difficult but required a bit of lateral thinking and problem solving to piece it all together. Did this as a family group on Christmas Eve and everyone said how much fun it was - silly but satisfying!
We didn't use any of the hints and managed it within about 45 mins, and we all thought the elf names were particularly excellent!
