It was challenging and fun to do. Very quickly, we came in a “competitor” mode, where everyone came with good ideas on how to solve the puzzles. We needed the help (lifelines) for many of the puzzles – but that was OK. We really liked that it was not just puzzles, but also gave us some new knowledge and information. The kit in the box was well organized and some of the puzzle was quite hard and some easy. But the most important was that we had a long walk and had fun. It was a good combination of exercise, culture and solving puzzles.
