Announcements

On Tuesday, January 2nd, we’ll announce our 2017 Golden Lock-In award winners. In the meantime, look back at the escape rooms that won in 2016 and 2015.

Featured escape rooms

On our recent trip to San Diego, we enjoyed The Parlour at Puzzalarium. This puzzle-driven game in an elegantly simple environment incorporated tabletop gaming mechanics to deliver something different.

From the community

We made two brief appearances on this week’s No Proscenium Podcast telling our New Years wishes for immersive entertainment.

Stefan over at Two Bears Life wrote a great piece, Why Broken Game Elements Are A Big Deal in Escape Rooms.

Darren Miller closed out the year with two more free puzzles, New Years Resolution and Summary 2017.

Finally, XKCD closed out the year with some brilliance that is relevant to our community.

(If you purchase via our Amazon links, you will help support Room Escape Artist as we will receive a very small percentage of the sale.)
