Unlike most puzzle games and escape rooms, Mother of Frankenstein was designed to be as welcoming and fun for newbies as it is rewarding for experts. Recommended for groups of 1-6, ages 13 and up, MoF combines the dense narrative complexity of a good novel with the physicality and interactivity of immersive theater, the brain-bending challenge of a puzzle-filled escape room with the accessibility and broad appeal of the best board games. Throw in a couple of clue-strewn jigsaw puzzles, and our game truly has something for everyone!
Each volume should take 3-5 hours to complete.
The venue changes to a certain famous castle in Germany. You’ll begin by constructing a 300-piece jigsaw puzzle that will serve as a sort of key to the mysteries that follow. One puzzle involves a ball thrown on a balmy summer night in 1814, for which you’ll have to chart the events of the evening by way of gossip rags, billiard hall schedules, and original drawings by comic book artist Liana Kangas. Afterwards you’ll descend into the bowels of the castle with alchemist Conrad Dippel, and discover what Mary learned under his tutelage.
