You have a variety of rooms to choose from such as the ‘Kiss of Death’ (in this room you are in a hospital where patients are mysteriously dying and you need to find out why) and ‘the American die-nar’ (lurking in the diner’s kitchen is a deadly bomb and you and your partner are the only ones who can diffuse it.) Why wouldn’t you want to put your partner to the test?
