REA Weekly Roundup – December 17, 2017

Greetings from New England! We’re enjoying a long weekend of escape rooms in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Connecticut, and including this evening’s Club Drosselmeyer.

Featured escape rooms

Komnata Quest’s Cursed is one of the few true horror escape rooms in the Northeastern US.

THE BASEMENT’S The Elevator Shaft is their new second chapter. It isn’t just a worthy successor; it’s a vastly superior one.

Featured products

We published some thoughts on giant puzzle products on Kickstarter, in particular The Enigma Box and Simulacra Games: The Wilson Wolfe Affair.

From the community

Human garbage Martin Shkreli was convicted of securities fraud earlier this year, and the Feds are looking to recover $7.4 million he illegally obtained. So… they are going after his never-released Wu Tang album, a Picasso, and an authentic German Enigma machine, among other things. Two thoughts come to mind:

  1. I’m pretty sure that this could be the setup for an escape room.
  2. There’s going to be another Enigma machine on the market!

SMOSH made an escape room about one of the worst films ever made (the Honest Trailer for this thing is amazing), and brought its star in to lumber through it. This video is just as funny as it is painful to watch.
