We did "The Heist" last night and it was fantastic - so cleverly put together and just about right for the hour available if you are on the ball. 5 stars is the only possible rating..

The game is designed for adults, however it is fine for children under 16 to attend at their parents discretion. We'd advise that you go in with them though!
