The Best Advice About Games I’ve Ever Written

Preparing for Your Next Escape Room Escapade

The scenarios you encounter in an Escape Room are a unique experience, meaning you can’t possibly be ready for them. If you believe in that, then you’re doomed to fail from the beginning. 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 main idea is to maintain good observation and communication skills even when tensions run high. But besides that, there are pointers you can remember to make sure that your upcoming Escape Room encounters will be easier than ever.

Avoid obsessing.

One typical problem is groups obsessing about one small detail and forgetting that they have an entire room to search for more clues. Multitasking is a good solution. Assign some members of your group to linger on an extremely difficult puzzle while others work hunt for more clues. In general, every time you feel you’ve approached a dead end, let it go and give your mind time to relax and regain the clarity it will need to finally discern a solution.

Talk and listen to your group.

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’re almost there with a solution but you need your group mates’ thoughts or opinions, do not hesitate to ask them. Otherwise, you will almost surely fail; on the other hand, engaging with one another can only make all of you smarter than ever.

Stay patient and positive.

Now remember, you just have a small amount of time to achieve your goal. Wasting one second of that time in a negative mindset only harms your chances further. The reality is, enthusiasm goes so much farther than intelligence when you talk this beating Escape Rooms.

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 improve your chances of success is a fun and enthusiastic approach. So enjoy each step, maximize every second you have, and support your team members when they seem like they’re on a roll. These are tested ways of achieving the victory you want.

Don’t hesitate to ask for hints.

For some people, this request for help is synonymous with defeat. However, it can’t be defeat unless the clock has hit zero. So, forget your pride and ask for that help if you need it.
