Normally it’s easy to go unnoticed as a reviewer, and I thought in ‘The Dark Room’ I would be safe. Oh, how wrong I was! John Robertson, the sinister gamesmaster in this live-action text-based adventure, knew I was there and I wasn’t coming out unscathed. Pitted against two children whose ages added up to less than mine, we battled it out in the ‘passive-aggressive co-op’ round, taking turns to select an option in an attempt to escape the Dark Room. Alas, I succumbed after an ill-advised decision to Skype. But losers win prizes, and now adorning ThreeWeeks HQ is an inflatable Banana Of Shame. Loud, raucous and brilliantly daft, this is unrelenting fun that everyone will have a chance to take part in.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 27 Aug.
