Bedpans & Broomsticks: Escape from Shady Pines

April 18, 2014 - 8:54pm

It’s the start of another day in the Shady Pines retirement home. Your abode is pleasant enough, but the home is not very exciting for someone like you. Why, back in the day, you were a mover and shaker… Or, at least you think you were. It’s hard to remember exactly…

The other inmates… sorry that’s residents… refer to you and the other more active seniors as the “Elders.” Today, the Elders are going on a field trip. After all it’s the 4th… or is it the Queen’s birthday… or … never mind. You’ve heard the staff talking, and it’s a nice day outside and you would really enjoy a walk along the beach and maybe a drink at a seaside cafe.

However, your bold plans have a few obstacles to overcome. The nurses, Doctor Tuur, and the rest of the staff have no intention of allowing unauthorized excursions. In addition, you cannot remember where the exit really is. Luckily, you have pieced together that the exits are on the ground floor, and that your room is on the floor above that.

So it’s custodial confrontation toe to toe with the Staff. Will you prevail and escape, or will you fail and remain safe and secure in the environs of the home.

Are you ready to Escape From Shady Pines?!? Bedpans & Broomsticks: Escape from Shady Pines is designed by Frederic Moyersoen (Ninja: Legend of the Scorpion Clan & Nuns on the Run) is for 2 to 5 players with a playtime of 60 minutes.
