TERPECA Nominations Are Open

The Top Escape Rooms Project Enthusiasts’ Choice Award – TERPECA – nomination process has begun. This a community-driven endeavor to help surface the finest games that our industry has produced.

Key Details for This Year

This year comes with a few twists… because everything is weird in 2020. The two things that everyone should know are:

  • Even if you haven’t played many real-life escape games this year… if you are eligible to nominate or vote, you still should.
  • Online escape rooms have their own category for nominating and voting.


I’m not going to rehash the background on TERPECA; we’ve done that before. I will remind you that Lisa and I share a vote on the TERPECA board. It is not our project, but we do our best to help guide it along with a few other well-intentioned folks.

Anyway, our nominations are in.

We’ll remind you when voting opens up in a few weeks.

official statement from TERPECA about 2020 Nominations:

The 2020 nomination window is now open! Nominations for this year’s awards are due October 31, 2020 at midnight Pacific time.

If you’re already approved as a nominator, visit https://voters.terpeca.com/ to get started. We hope that everyone that’s eligible to contribute will do so this year, to help make sure we can properly honor the great work of those that have had a difficult year. If you nominated rooms last year, the process should be much faster this year.

If you’re not an approved nominator, but you’ve played 200+ rooms and would like to join the project this year (or upgrade from voter status from last year), visit https://voters.terpeca.com/. You will be required to provide references and evidence of your room count, but we will do our best to process applications quickly.

Finally, please spread the word to anyone else you know that’s played at least 200 rooms to apply for nominator status as well. We are always trying to grow our pool of contributors to improve our coverage and quality of results.

We will announce the results of the nomination phase and launch the voting phase in early November. For questions, visit https://voters.terpeca.com/faq.
