Takes 2-3 hours and has a suitable degree of difficulty. It's fun and educational - and creatively made. Is definitely worth the money, and can only be recommended.

Really fun way to find out about some local heroes and history. Puzzles were not too challenging to be frustrating but enough to give you a sense of accomplishment.
