About Escape Room Competition

Escape rooms did not originate as competitive games. Their transition into competitive formats isn’t always easy. We discuss that a bit in this piece about the EGOlympics. And we dive into this more deeply with Ken Hoang on Season 2, Episode 4 of the Reality Escape Pod.

This event, however, is designed to be a competition… So bring your A-team. There will be some fierce competitors from around the world in the mix.

Should I Play?

This event is designed for escape room enthusiasts.

If you like to race through games and set records, this is probably your type of event.

If you prefer to savor the details of your experiences, you probably won’t enjoy this as much.

Of note, this year’s competition is best suited to players who enjoy point-and-click games.
