I’m Andre, a room escape game creator with over a decade of experience under my belt. It’s been a wild ride watching groups of friends, families, corporate team outings, and even some brave solo explorers tackling my rooms.
Over the years, I’ve picked up some nifty insights on what it takes to come out victorious in this race against time. So, get ready for a dose of wisdom, delivered with a pinch of humor, of course, sans any personal observations.
  1. All for One and One for All In an escape room, teamwork isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have. A group of adventurers working together is like a well-conducted orchestra: when everyone plays their part, magic happens. So remember, escape rooms are no place for solo solos.

  2. A Place for Everything, and Everything in Its Place Managing clues in an escape room can be like herding cats if you’re not organized. No one wants to lose a vital key in a flurry of frantic searching, do they? Remember, treating your clues like the pieces of a well-ordered puzzle can save you a world of trouble.
  3. A Dash of Creativity Never underestimate the power of creative thinking in an escape room. It’s a bit like making a sandwich at midnight—you might be surprised at what strange combinations can actually work. That framed photo of a cat might just hold the secret to your escape.
  4. Don’t Overthink: Keep it Simple It’s easy to tumble down the rabbit hole of overthinking in an escape room. If you find yourself pondering if the striped wallpaper is a barcode, it might be time to take a step back. Sometimes, a key is just a key, and wallpaper is just, well, decorative.
  5. Hints: The Unsung Heroes Hints in an escape room are like condiments at a barbecue—they can turn a good experience into a great one. Don’t shy away from using them. After all, even superheroes occasionally need a little help. 
  6. Time is of the Essence Successfully navigating an escape room is a bit like baking a soufflé. Rush it, and you’ll end up with a mess. Take too long, and it won’t rise. Keep a keen eye on the clock, pace yourself, and remember – haste often makes waste.
  7. Keep Calm and Escape On Finally, keep your cool. An escape room might feel like a high-stakes spy mission, but it’s all in good fun. Treat it like a zen meditation with puzzles, and you’ll find yourself thinking clearer and making better decisions.

At the end of the day, remember the golden rule of escape rooms: have fun. Whether you’re stopping a fictitious asteroid from wiping out civilization or unmasking a ghost in a haunted manor, the journey is the destination. Happy escaping!
