Amateur Adventure Hour (again)

By | July 16, 2020

The effort that’s gone into this, Russian university students did their own version of Fort Boyard about five years ago, sticking reasonably closely to their duel format of about ten years ago but with a couple of more modern additions. I really like some of the ideas here – dolphin in the attic (probably could use the attic and the basement for more), the way they’ve done Pere Fouras’ watchtower, their version of ‘equilibre a deux’ is surprisingly tense for being about a metre off the ground. The night mission goes on a bit, but still. You might need to turn subs on.

    Really enjoyed this – with subtitles, as you say. Many thanks for sharing. In my mind, the host is Young Nigel Lythgoe, and the enthusiasm of the young Passe boys is great. The production is tremendous, and the games are… generally good enough. I want to say that Russians are mad keen on not just escape games but have a long history of plenty of what we’d consider outdoor overnight puzzle hunts, so this doesn’t come as a complete surprise.

    It would also not come as a surprise if the Russian game show / puzzle hunt fandom were to find us talking about them some day so HELLO AND PLEASE TALK TO US.
