    **Possible Spoilers**
    As Far as Escape Room Board/Card games go Unlock isn’t bad. It starts with a tutorial that gives you a quick run through of how the game works and shows you how to combine the cards. I wasn’t a huge fan of this one as we got stuck trying to find one number which you just had to be lucky enough to spot, there wasn’t a clue to solve it or a card where it was the only number on it so this felt like a bad mechanic to me. Other then that one piece the rest of the game ran quite smooth. Much like normal escape rooms you find pieces or clue and put them together to create more clues. Whilst you can’t use this one yourself multiple times as you’ve already solved it you can pass it on and let others have a go.
