It was such a joy to bring this community together at Hatch Escapes last week. Los Angeles has always been the home of our most well-attended meetups. With at least 65 attending, this was our biggest meetup yet!
- We played the first 10 minutes of The Ladder. This game is something exceptional. We cannot wait for Hatch Escapes to finish building it out.
- We toured Escape My Room’s new build out upstairs, which will be something special.
- A few folks got to experience The Nest. They returned to the meetup a pile of feels.
- We played Funbi’s Puzzle Buffet, an adorable game with scrumptious puzzles, originally designed for a cruise ship.
- David and I shared 11 lessons from 1100 escape rooms.
- We looked at the beautiful Mother of Frankenstein coffee table (yes, really) in the Hatch Escapes lobby. And folks bought copies of the game!
- We reconnected with old friends, many of whom we hadn’t seen since 2019.
- We met so many new friends!
And Also… Escape Rooms!
It was a pretty epic trip for escape rooms. Here are few of the highlights:
We played the very last game of Time Machine.
We played Treehouse, the newest game from Confusion Escapes. We also visited a few companies for the first time including Atlantis: The Forgotten City at Hypnotic Escape Rooms and Treasure Island at Brain Games (reviews coming soon!).
We replayed The Hex Room (as new characters), revisiting it for the first time since 2016. It holds up!
We met some Patreon backers who are new Los Angeles escape room owners, and we look forward to playing your games on our next trip!
One of the joys of traveling is seeing old friends and meeting new ones. The conversations and the connections are why we love this community. We look forward to hosting similar events on future trips to Los Angeles and other cities.
Thank you to our Patreon backers. It was wonderful to see and meet so many of you in Los Angeles.
