CONTENTS OF THE BOX
Tutorial (10 cards),
3 adventures (180 cards),
6 red cubes,
1 solutions booklet.
Away from the license exploitation of the wrong box Star wars, this 10th box revives what has made the reputation (deserved) of the range: increasing difficulty, intelligent and very diverse puzzles.
The Beginner Level adventure is taken from the game The Adventurers of the Rail and is inspired by the atmosphere of Tintin, against a background of investigation and priple through the USA. Very good adventure to start the To open, from around 10 years old.
The Confirm Level adventure is taken from the game Mystery and resumes very well its atmosphere of a haunted mansion.
Expert Level Adventure is taken from the game Pandemic and makes us fight against innumerable variants of viruses (like what, the fiction often joins reality). Of a very high level (one of the most difficult all boxes combined, the scientific atmosphere is served by puzzles that are sometimes puzzling, but devilishly clever.
To summarize, this box is rather a success, with, once is not customary, a use of the application in the background rather than the main tool. The challenge of adapting the worlds of other cult games To open is therefore a success.
