This blog post is going to be as much a challenge to write, as the mystery was to solve. Wait, let me explain - I'm not saying that Lady Chastity is easy to complete, although we did do it with 9mins to spare #humblebrag, but I am going to have to try to explain how fantastic this was, without actually telling you anything about it.
For those of you who haven't done an escape room or hint hunt before - just do it. Get a good team together and just go for it. They are great - think crystal maze but more fun. In essence, you and your team are put in a room full of clues, riddles and an immersive story where you have to solve the puzzle in 60minutes or less. In the case of Lady Chastity's Reserve you are playing for a bottle of her aphrodisiac wine.
If you have done an escape room or hint hunt before, you will already understand what I am saying. You will understand the fun, the team building and how good it feels to solve the mystery or puzzle. I have done both before and really enjoyed them, so I knew I would love this, although it is slightly different to the ones before.
Lady Chastity's reserve is hosted in the back rooms of the Black Lion pub in Brighton, where you will be greeted by Gabriel, the games host. He's funny and filled with riddles and quick quips, but make sure you really listen to what he says before you get in the room. He can help you up to 3 times. Once in the sppoky room you will need to solve the mystery in the dark, each of you are armed with a torch to help you look for clues. Be careful while searching the room, there is plenty to make you jump.
I would really recommend going if you are looking for something spooky and different to do this Halloween and beyond!
