Overall Liberty’s Squad’s good. It felt shorter than other 60 minute games when I did it. No idea if any changes have been made.

Breakout Team Adventures is in the Scarborough/Markham area. They only have one room out at the time of writing this, the WWII themed Liberty Squad. In the Liberty Squad, your group is split up into two teams. One team consists of captured commanders, while the other is composed of their rescue team. The commanders are blindfolded and brought into a room and handcuffed, while the rescue team starts in another room. Splitting up a team in two is a premise I’ve seen before, but the Liberty Squad Room definitely has some very unique elements.  For whatever reason, Breakout Team Adventures doesn’t have a difficulty rating system, but I think the Liberty Squad room would probably rate somewhere around 3/10 in difficulty. It’s just a guess, because the style of the puzzles/obstacles are very different, but I think it’s within reason that beginners could beat it.

My one complaint about the overarching puzzle design is that I don’t think a proper balance of puzzles/obstacles between the two sides have been reached just yet. I was part of the rescue team with one partner, while two other friends of ours were the captured commanders. In our post-game debrief, it definitely seemed like one side had significantly more obstacles to overcome.
