“Escape” Puzzles by Ravensburger
Is it a puzzle or is it game? OR is BOTH??
Not only a puzzle, but once the puzzle is complete, there is a series of clues, questions in a booklet that need to be answered about the puzzle and picture itself.
There are a series of 6 of these 759 piece games that the world leader in puzzles, Ravensburger” has produced. These are in their “ESCAPE” line of puzzles.
Now one challenge is the BOX ART of the puzzle is not exactly the same as the picture of the puzzle. Otherwise, you would not need to put the puzzle together to “solve” the mysteries. It is close but can be a little frustrating for beginning puzzlers.
