It is one of the best questo game so far. Very interesting. We had fun. Thank you. Unfortunately some of the direction are not clear or insted of right is actually a left and it took long time to figure out and one of the blue plaque what we should find it is actually been removed from the wall. If the one who created the game read this I can give detailed feedback where the problems are.
