A Curious Tea Party is the latest Escape Hunt game


A Curious Tea Party is an exciting themed game with escape room style conundrums, that allows you to venture down a rabbit hole of puzzles to forget about everything for an hour.

It's a play at home version that you print out and do in your own time. Suitable for children aged eight and over and with between two to six players, it gives you the flexibility to play it as a family, couple or with flatmates.

In lockdown style, you can even play A Curious Tea Party over video chat as long as all the players have a colour printer at their disposal. It's the next best thing until the Escape Hunt locations across Birmingham are allowed to reopen.

Visually fun featuring iconic characters


The puzzles get curiouser and curiouser as you track your way around a map of Wonderland to solve riddles while meeting various renowned characters like The Mad Hatter and Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee.

The premise is that the Queen of Hearts is holding a tea party at the Royal Castle and you are helping to get the invitations delivered as the rabbit is finding it hard to find anyone.

Pitted against the hour deadline, the time is ticking and you don't want to be late.

Alice in Wonderland fans will particularly enjoy this game


Visually, it's one of the most fun Escape Hunt games I have played so far among its wide range of play at home options. It's well thought out and has a mid to high level of difficulty that makes it more interesting. For 14.99, it's good value for money too.

Tailored to various types of logic, there is a crossword puzzle, along with a jigsaw, anagrams and even some that require a mirror.

Tracking your way around the map to places invented by the imagination of Lewis Carroll feels special and memorable too.

The story fits with what we all know and love about Alice in Wonderland and the artistic drawings have a vintage charm about them.
