Puzzles, riddles, decoding, and people in general can really take a lot of your mental energy. It’s easy to feel fatigued or overwhelmed when surrounded by a room of people trying to figure out solutions… Stay calm and be positive! Having an optimistic member of the team can bring a bit of light to the darkness when everything seems to be looking bleak. Have your team’s back!
Some people absolutely excel in putting pieces together. Usually, you’re best off sharing the weight though! Everyone has unique knowledge in certain areas so if you’re having trouble figuring something out, get your team involved. It goes without saying, if you know you’re great at figuring out problems, put your opinion forward and help as much as you can.
Quick Tips For Escape Rooms
Working together as a team is your winning factor. If you are in separate groups playing one room together, do not distance yourself! If you work as a unit, you’ll have a much higher chance of getting through the escape room faster.
Communication is key. Without this, you’ll be the instrument to your own downfall. Speak out loud, shout when you’ve found clues or anything that can potentially bring you closer to your goals. By doing this, you let the clue master in on where you are in the game. This ensures that everyone is on the same page and the game can run as smoothly as possible.
Be observant of everything in the room. Check around for labels, indicators and other clues that may be more subtle than others. Follow the instructions carefully as well. Whether they are from clues around the room or the clue master, the instructions are there to keep you safe and progress the game.
