Escape Room Tips and Strategy
Escape rooms aren’t your typical run-of-the-mill game. Here, you’re the center of the action and will have to use your mind to crack clue and solve riddles. While these rooms can be tough, a few helpful tips will get you started on the right foot. Come in comfortable and with a positive attitude. Escape rooms are no place for bickering or sibling squabbles. Your team is working together, so get on friendly terms with one another and work together for success! Also, try not to overthink the puzzles. While these rooms are tricky, most solutions are actually pretty simple….once you see it! Don’t overcomplicate things and stick to basic ideas that make sense. Also, take advantage of the whiteboard in the room to brainstorm and keep track of things. Lastly, keep a close eye on the clock and ask for help if you get stuck. Time passes very quickly in an escape room, and getting stumped for 20 minutes can ruin your chances of escape. When you know you need help, just ask for it! That’s what the game master is there for!
