I’ve been into escape rooms lately. Have you done one? There are more and more escape room companies popping up. My husband and I have tried three in our area already. It’s a unique and fun challenge where you go and are “locked” in a room with usually up to 10 people. There are clues or objects you need to find in order to escape, which you must do in one hour. They’re a ton of fun!
They’re so much fun that…I wrote my own that I can host myself! I of course love games, and writing, and it took a lot of planning and work and play testing (by so many wonderful, willing friends; thank you!). But it was a lot of fun to do.
And of course, why keep it just to myself when I can offer it to all my readers? You can buy the DIY escape room kit as a complete downloadable package that let’s you host your own escape room at home. Everything is planned, you just need to read the instructions, print and cut out the clues, prepare a room, hide the clues, and you’re good to go!
This Science Lab Breakout escape room has a plot (a feature I’ve appreciated in other escape rooms). Another thing I like about the Science Lab Breakout room is that it incorporates paper clues, but also props (all common household objects) that your guests can interact with. Searching for clues and physical items makes the game realistic and fun.
I’m offering a launch special price and…a giveaway!
