Here’s a quick read for you.
Last month we traveled to Colorado and played 31 games in 4 days. All of the reviews are written and will publish throughout the rest of 2019.
While we were there, we saw something that I thought was just lovely.
Loaner Reading Glasses
While visiting Locked In Escapes in Colorado Springs, we noticed a small bowl on their front desk filled with reading glasses.
People who use over-the-counter reading glasses are notorious for forgetting to bring them when they go out. Some people can get by fine when the lighting is good. Many really struggle to read or see digits on a lock in dim lighting.
With a bucket of loaner readers, should a player forget to bring their own, they could borrow a pair for use in the game.
What Should You Buy?
Our team on our crazy Colorado escape room marathon included optometrist and fantastic escape room teammate Dr. Chris White.
I asked Chris what should be included in a loaner reading glasses box. He said that they should at least cover the correction range of +1.25 through +2.50.
An easy way of covering that range (and then some) is to buy an assortment pack. The pack that Chris suggested includes 25 pairs ranging from +1.25 through +3.25.
This is a simple, sweet thing to offer your players.
I wouldn’t be shocked to learn that other companies are already doing something similar, but Locked In Escapes was the first place we saw this, so I’ll give credit where it’s due.
