Hidden behind an ornate, ivy-covered gate in Gemmayzeh sprawls a 19th-century house that's become home to Maze of Tales and – as the new escape room game "The Bride's Doom" reveals – a setting for mystery, murder and magic. Escape room games are a popular form of entertainment these days, taking their cue from Agatha Christie-style detective fiction – and the 20th-century board game "Clue," which inspired a feature film of the same name. Designers of these immersive experiences devise plotlines – festooned with riddles, puzzles and mental challenges – and stage them in propped rooms that serve as the game location. Maze of Tales began offering its first, story-driven game in January.Newlyweds Rose Hamilton and Edward Chesterfield have recently moved into their new house and are celebrating their nuptials with friends and family, only to have the evening end in murder.Eyes-closed, the team is led into the room and locked inside.
