If you’re looking for a puzzle more challenging than any you’ll find in a Massachusetts escape room… it’s pronouncing the names of the towns that these companies are in.
Some may be straightforward, but most of them offer no clues in the spelling.
I’ve simplified these names by turning them into actual puzzles so that you have a fighting chance at pronouncing these names correctly. You’re welcome.
Fitch-burg… April Fools! That one’s spelled sensibly.
Escape Room Salem
Sale-em… Don’t be smug; you only knew this one because of the witch trials.
Raid the Room
Lol. Still cant figure out Worcester because I can never figure out how to say Worcestershire sauce. No fair using something unpronounceable to show you how to pronounce something. But I loved the BASS+ton one!
Hahaha I spent a silly amount of time just making Worcester work. Options were very limited.
Puzzlescape is in boring, old, easy to pronounce Hudson! 😜. Although it isn’t the pronunciation that gets us, it is that there is a Hudson in just about every state – just yesterday we had a group excited to join us except they were 1000 miles away!
Dang, you should do one for Texas. So many weirdo town names around here (Manchaca is pronounced “Man-shack” and Bexar is “Bayer”, just to give you a small sample).
Outside the Box is in easy to pronounce Webster. But Webster is famous for Lake Chaubunagungamaug 🙂
Oh my! I am not touching that one.
