Yesterday we went to the House of Riddles with the aim of playing two escape rooms. The Diamond and the Passengers! Remember that both of the rooms have as an aim to accomplish missions and not to escape from them. First and foremost, the Diamond is an old school room which gives the opportunity for amateur teams to enter the world of escape rooms! Good mechanisms and atmosphere, which depsite the fact that the room is open for 2,5 years, make the players enjoy to the maximum the experience!
The mission is well-structured and the riddles have medium difficulty.
Second of all, in my opinion, the best room that House of Riddles can offer to people is the Passengers! Maybe one of the best mechanisms of all the rooms I've been! It's a lot different from anything you have played! A lot of hidden paths, great riddles and the action never stops! You will surely put your knowledge to the test in order to solve the riddles!
The House of Riddles has done a great job providing the best possible atmosphere for such a room and the background music is absolutely amazing! Be hasty, observe the room in detail and work as a team is some of the tips that they seem handy for such a room! To sum up, al I could say is that it's worth visiting! Grab 2 or 3 friends and go have some fun! After escaping from The Matrix a few months back, we opted to try The Diamond and I think that decision was probably the wrong one. Not that the room was bad, the room is good. However after already having tried another 2 similar rooms from other companies i.
So, I'll try to be objective and ignore the lack of excitement due to the above. The room pits the team as burglars trying to steal a precious diamond from a high security bank. The room setup is nothing too impressive, specifically in the first room but this is improved later on. It requires a fair combination of searching and solving with some interesting riddles.

I'd say it is a fairly easy one, especially with the help of the GM, so I'd suggest it mainly for beginner teams. The room we booked "The Passengers" can't be played if you don't speak Greek. As far as the name of the business and the name of the game were in English, and nothing was specified on their website, we thought that we could play in English. We sent them a Facebook chat message two hours before the reservation that was seen but no answered.
They answered and told us about this inconvenience just 5 minutes before the hour we booked, when we already paid a taxi to reach the place. The bomb. I am not going to spoil. Just go and have fun.

House of Riddles is an old house nicely transformed into an escape rooms venue. The effort that went into this is evident even from the waiting area that looks like a detective's office.
It would be great if they actually used this as a briefing area before you entered each room started each mission. It is really close to the Agios Antonios metro station, but it is also quite easily accessible by car and parking close by was easy. For our first attempt in House of Riddles we decided to try The Matrix. First off, just to mention the room is doing a good job using the movie theme, ok do not expect any bullet time or spectacular effects, in fact the room may appear quite empty, however I need to applaud the attempt to actually use the theme considering a few examples of other companies where the theme is just used in the room title, but not in the actual room.
