We were joined on our sleeper train to Paris by young crime reporter Betty Willson. She had been given the task of investigating the theft of the Black Widow diamond. With the notorious Rag-Tag Crew as the only suspects, she had tracked them down to our train to Paris. In addition to the City Adventurers there were six mysterious passengers onboard, all members of the ‘Rag-Tag Crew’. Betty had to collect the evidence needed to put the gang behind bars during the journey. It would be a race against time, as the gang were hot on her heels!
And so began our Escape from the Starline Express. There were puzzles to be solved in each train compartment as we investigated the mysteries found on this long, lonely stretch of track…..
Each carriage unfolds into an image of the particular carriage and contains the next piece of the story. With the linear one-puzzle-at-a-time nature of the game playing as a couple worked well. If you had a larger group there may not be enough to keep everyone occupied. The suggested game playing time is 90 minutes for the 8 train carriage room challenges and clues.
