Here’s a chance to put all of their acclaimed worldliness to the test. Shot In The Dark is an unorthodox game filled with non-boring questions, which without a doubt will ignite discussions at any party or gathering.

Goliath Games Escape Room

Now I can’t promise a quick escape from 2020, but winning an at-home Escape Room game could be just as satisfying.

This is suitable for 3-5 players, making it perfect for our current restricted gatherings.
