Escape Room Tips and Strategy

While escape rooms are designed for an hour of puzzles and fun, these rooms can be quite challenging. Here are a couple of tips and strategies to help you succeed at Breakout Games - Baltimore. First, pay close attention to the details scattered throughout the room. While there are certainly going to be some false clues and “red herrings”, often times the crucial next step is taken by finding something subtle. Sometimes these are obvious, sometimes not. Also, each item or puzzle is generally used just once, so after the next step is taken, you won’t be needing an old clue again. Work together and harmoniously with your group. The teams that stick together win together! Lastly, don’t be stubborn about asking for clues when you get stuck. We want to help guide you along the way, and sometimes you simply cannot figure out a step. Instead of wasting precious minutes, relax and ask for a clue. We’ll help keep you on the path to breaking out!
