What is an escape room?

The concept of the escape room is quite simple. Locked in a room, in teams of 2 to 5 players, you have one hour to escape. To achieve this, you will have to organize yourself as a team to search the room and solve a series of puzzles. A game master watches over you thanks to cameras and if necessary he will help you during the game. An escape game is a bit of a collective challenge, an investigation to be carried out, a puzzle to be assembled piece by piece. The most difficult thing is to manage to finish in less than an hour.

How to win an escape room when you are a beginner?

Many believe that to succeed in an escape game, intelligence is the most essential quality. It's wrong. The puzzles are designed to be doable by everyone. The most important thing is to be organized, methodical and to use common sense. At the start of your adventure, one of our charming gamemasters will brief you. Listen to him carefully because if you follow his advice, the game will be much easier. It's a bit like wanting to assemble an ikea piece of furniture, without following the instructions. You can certainly do it, but you'll make more mistakes and waste time.
Step 1: Search the room and collect the clues.
The first thing you need to do is search. Search quickly because your time is limited but above all search everywhere! Run your hands over and under all shelves, furniture, drawers, rugs. when you think you've found everything, search again and go back to where your teammates went. Trust does not exclude control. Gather in the center of the room everything you found before going to step 2.

Step 2: Work as a team
Once you've gathered a number of clues, it's time to start tying things together. Found a key? So try to open a padlock or lock. Do you have a text? Read it out loud so everyone can hear it. You will go faster than if everyone reads it separately. Talk to each other and listen to each other in order to progress together. Teamwork is the most difficult aspect of the game because everyone must know how to make their ideas heard but also listen to those of others.

Step 3: Take action
To hesitate is to waste time. When you start in an escape game, you are often afraid of making mistakes, of doing harm. Better to make a mistake than to do nothing. Often players are afraid of doing wrong. Often it is better to take a chance and get lost for a few minutes on the wrong track rather than hesitate for a few minutes and wonder what to do. If someone has an idea, don't tell them: "No, it can't be that". Let him try. This will allow you to eliminate a possibility. If you have an idea, don't wait for validation from your team. Follow your intuition and take action!
