March 7: NYC Room Escape Fan Shindig

*Update: Due to the threat of apocalyptic weather, we’ve postponed this event 1 week. It will now be held on 3/14. All other details remain the same.

We’ve met a lot of wonderful people who love escape rooms, puzzles, and other immersive entertainment. We’d love to get many of the locals (and anyone who happens to be in town) in the same room… just to hang out.

Please join us for our first NYC Room Escape Fan Shindig.

Anticipated Questions

What does this event cost?

It is free to attend. We ask that you please purchase food and/or drinks from the venue, Paulaner on Boweryย Shades of Green Pub.

If we have more than 40 people in attendance, we’ll have a minimum spend at the restaurant. We’ll deal with that if we have to.

Do I need to RSVP?

Yes. Please RSVP (and don’t flake) so that we can give a headcount to the venue and make sure we have enough space reserved for the group.

Will there be an escape room?

Nope. This is about community. Adding an escape room would make this not free, artificially cap the numbers, and add a lot of logistics.

Will you be giving a talk?

Nope. There will be no talk and no agenda. This is simply a gathering of people who love being locked in giant puzzle adventures and want to meet other people who also wish that their arch-nemesis was The Riddler.

Is there a minimum age requirement?

Nope. If you’re under 21 you simply can’t drink alcohol. Children are welcome if accompanied by adults.

I’m an owner. Can I come?

Absolutely. We’d love to have you. Just be cool and don’t show up hard selling.

Will there be food?

We’ll be in a restaurant. If you buy it, you can eat it.

Will there be alcohol?

If the bartender will sell you booze, it’s all yours. Please drink responsibly. If you’re younger than 21, no shenanigans please.

My name is Bill and I’ve designed a nifty new puzzle. Can I bring it for people to beta test?ย Yup. This is also fine if your name is not Bill.
