About Mac Gyver: The Escape Room Game
MacGyver: The Escape Room Game brings the challenge of an escape room straight to the comfort of a player’s home. Under license by CBS Consumer Products, this escape room in a box includes five, individual, hour-long missions that will require players to use their mind as the ultimate weapon.
MacGyver’s team must use the interactive website to guide them through the missions, while keeping in contact with their operative at the Phoenix Foundation to track their progress.
Players will need to work together and use the tools at hand to solve puzzles and diffuse bombs. Think outside of the box, as you discover secret codes, take on high-risk missions, and face off against a familiar foe.
“Pressman’s escape room game is unique since players have to ‘MacGyver’ their way through the missions by using ordinary, everyday objects like a paperclip,” said David Norman, President of Pressman Toy Corporation.
Missions are inspired by episodes from the original show. You will work together to escape from an underground laboratory, land an airplane, survive a dangerous factory, flee from a missile silo and outsmart Murdoc in the grand finale.
Will MacGyver save the day, or will it end in disaster? Designed for 1 – 4 players, ages twelve and up.
Here's our unboxing video and short review of the game with clips of the first section of the game.
We'll be uploading the game play of the first section the week after the giveaway concludes.
We thoroughly enjoyed the challenges in the game as well as the interactive website that goes with it. The riddles are very well-planned and we loved solving the complex challenges in the game. Get ready to use your team members' potential and strengths, as this can be a very fun team building activity. We did encounter some rules that needed to have a more concise and clearer instructions, as it can somewhat be deceiving as to what the objective really is, but other than that we loved the level of difficulty (which you can select and change).
