Operation Magnus


Played October 5th 2018


“The year is 1942, World War 2 rages on. You are an elite spy deep undercover at the operations bunker of the infamous splinter cell group known as SPYKE. The group has reached an agreement with the mysterious Magnus, an aerospace engineer, and he has agreed to develop a new super weapon that could change the tides of war and leave devastation in its wake.

After months on a covert operation an assault on the base has left you free to finally gather the intel needed on the inner workings of this weapon and ascertain the technology for the allied forces.

Your only line of communication is a fellow agent who has been placed amongst SPYKE’s ranks for this very moment, they will be on hand to assist you throughout the mission but must do so without blowing their cover.

This could truly be the turning point of the war; The Allied forces, the Resistance and even the fate of the world, rests on your shoulders. Godspeed agent.”


Our host Jess took us to our room after ReactorVate and gave us the funny health and safety briefing along with the plot to our room.

Room Set Up

This game utilizes the space really well, it can be a squeeze at times but after all you are in a bunker and space is always limited, a team of 5 would just be able to manage without getting on top of each other. We tend to stay away from war themed rooms as you find they pretty much have the bare minimum in them, with no decoration and poor lighting however this isn’t the case, the room was full of items and decoration was on point.

Game Play

The game has a nice flow with a few stumbling blocks for us on the way, you really need to wade through the props and have a proper search, we recommend you keep items organised when rummaging. Teamwork as always plays a key part, you need some active listening skills for this game or a ridiculously good memory. The game involves, logical, observational and mental puzzles, with no padlocks or if you are like Becky just take things apart to get through (please don’t)

Our Overall Rating

Immersion ★★★☆☆

Difficulty ★★★☆☆

Wow Factor ★★★★

Overall Experience ★★★★

We had a blast playing Operation Magnus with a fun fueled surprise, sorry no spoilers. The game flow was great however our brains were mashed, due to doing to many rooms, we are getting too old. Becky found a hack that only 1 other person has done, but they were an engineer, which meant we skipped a step but it didn’t hinder our game flow at all. Escapologic never fail to deliver a fantastic room, we would highly recommend anyone who hasnt played this room to give it a go.
