THE FIFTH COLUMN

June 1945, Manhattan—The city celebrates the recent surrender of Nazi Germany during WWII, but peril lurks in the shadows.

The game is steeped with real historical documents and facts as you step into the shoes of a WWII codebreaker. Play with a group or on your own for hours of fun. It's like two escape room or mystery games with one single purchase.

The puzzles within this game are quite challenging. Many inexperienced players have enjoyed our games but often take more time and use more hints than more seasoned puzzle-solvers. Inexperienced players will also benefit from working in a group, since different players will find different puzzles easier. Our games have no time limit and come with an online hint system so that players of all experience levels can calibrate the game for themselves.

We recommend ages 14 and older. While the material is appropriate for younger players, the puzzles are quite challenging. That said, players younger than 14 have also enjoyed playing our games, typically in a group that includes older players.

We recommend groups of 1-6 people, though groups larger than 6 have enjoyed playing as well! A larger group just means players will need to share more of the puzzles.

Like most escape rooms or puzzle adventures, the game is fun when you don't know how to solve the puzzles, so it's typically played only once per person.

However, many players keep the materials in good condition (since none of the puzzles require destroying materials to solve them) to pass their game along to a friend or family member afterwards.

Yes, you will need Internet access to view the Online Companion Guide to get hints, check answers, and progress the story. You may also use the Internet to help solve several of the puzzles.
