Escape room recommendations

Escape rooms have become more and more popular and elaborate with some bordering nearly on the immersive side. If you love solving puzzles and cracking clues then Escape rooms are certainly a unique fun thing to do with friends & family or even work colleagues for a social team building challenge. For those that have done escape rooms you will all know that they are very unique and challenging in their own rights.  If you have never done one I highly recommend you do so.

Still asking why play an escape room?

Well if you was like me when I was growing up I used to watch a 90’s television game show called The Crystal Maze and it involved lots of puzzles and challenges all to be done within a set time frame. I love puzzles and challenges so I always wanted to appear on it and be one of those contestants.  Plus I had a crush on Richard O’Brien. Alas though unfortunately I never did get the opportunity to play or appear on The Crystal Maze. However no fear as Crystal Maze is very much like an escape room but instead of playing in a room by yourself with your team mates shouting at you through a window with an escape room you can all play together at the same time.

Who was murdered? – Hint Hunt: JM’s office

I went along to Hint Hunt this game with nine others and we split into two teams and both played identical rooms. We all played the JM’s Office escape room. So the challenge was on in who could escape the room first in the quickest time.

Hint Hunt – JM’s Office

You are locked in the room for 60 minutes and the hunt is on. There is so many objects to look at and open from secret compartments to padlocks with one or two objects being red herrings as well along the way. Continue reading
