The Key Elements of Great Entertainment

How to Prepare for Your Next Escape Room Adventure

The challenges posed by Escape Rooms will always be unique, so you can’t really be ready for them. If you think that’s true, then you’re bound to lose the game. Notwithstanding escape room designers’ efforts, they will always have a tendency to repeat particular elements which, if you are sharp and prepared enough, will help bring you to the next step of the game.

Of course, the key is to remain observant and in touch with your team even in the face of tension. But on top of that, there are things you can keep in mind as you make sure that next time around, your Escape Room encounter will be yours to conquer.

Avoid obsessing.

One usual issue is groups fixating on one tiny detail when they should be scouring the place around for more hints. Multitasking is the most effective solution. Assign some members of your group to linger on an extremely difficult puzzle while others work hunt for more clues. Generally speaking, each time you think you’re at a dead end, detach your mind from the element so it can take a beak, regain some clarity, and finally serve up with a solution.

Good communication is one of the most important requirements of a successful Escape Room experience. If you find something that you think is a clue, let everyone know! If you feel you’ve discovered the solution but need some input, ask your group mates for their thoughts. By not doing so, you will almost certainly lose the challenge, while engaging with one another will make you all smarter by a mile.

Now keep in mind that you have but a limited stretch of time to solve the puzzle. Just one second wasted on negative thoughts can hurt your chances big time. Fact is, enthusiasm can beat brain power anytime in an Escape Room environment.

Most games are designed without requiring you to learn any type of knowledge beforehand, so your world-class chess skills or degree in Applied Mathematics will only make you overthink the puzzles without getting anywhere. What does correlate positively is a fun and enthusiastic mindset. So enjoy every second of the mystery, make the most of the clues you’ve deciphered, and be supportive to team members who may be on a roll. These are some of the most crucial methods of getting the victory you want.

Don’t hesitate to ask for hints.

Some people think asking this request for a hint is like accepting defeat. But for as long as the clock isn’t zero, it can never be defeat. So, throw that your pride away and ask for that hint if it will help you reach the goal.
