The Ultimate Guide to Beating an Escape Room

If you’re looking to win on your first Escape Room Game, then this post should give you a few tips on how to beat the clock effectively. We can’t say that by reading our post you’ll win the game, but what it will do is give you a few clues before you get here and make you feel more confident. So, read the only guide you’ll ever need on beating the Escape Room challenge. 

Keep clues and puzzles in one central place

Don’t lose your clues, because if you do you may never see them again and that could lose you the entire game. There are lots of different things to consider, including furniture, pictures, bookshelves, things on the floor, on the wall etc, so it makes sense to allocate one place to put them where they can be worked on together as a group later once you’ve found them all. 

Familiarise yourself with the room’s layout

You’ll find that most of the Escape Rooms, wherever they are, are designed in a similar way and will follow the same rules. Knowing this will save you time as you navigate your way around the room. The game is designed so you’ll find them and solve them within 60 minutes, so don’t overthink it. 

Play will people you know well

If you play with people you know there will be less awkwardness and you won’t be faced with the prospect of spending time with someone you don’t get on with. Pick people that have similar interests to you and people you know will play as you do – to win. They could be people you work with on a regular basis, or close friends and family.

Keep the team small

You’re supposed to have anywhere between two to six players in a game. We suggest you choose under the maximum number of six. That way it won’t be too crowded, there’ll be room for people to move around and there’ll be no one bumping into the furniture or each other.
