Escape Games - A primer
The concept has been coined Escape Room, but it might also sometimes be called an exit game or exit room.
An escape game is a live physical adventure where players are "locked" in a room. Each room has a theme with some type of story line to follow or mystery to solve. Players try to escape the room within a time limit by looking for clues, solving puzzles and deciphering codes. It is a team-based activity encouraging collaboration and creative thinking. The games are meant to be mentally challenging to some degree and many require at least some physical activity.
Escape game rooms are modeled after the "escape the room" style video games in which players are trapped inside some fictional location and must explore and exploit their environment in order to find their way out. The first major company began in Japan in 2007. The concept spread and, today, there are thousands of rooms around the globe.
