Announcing RECON Boston – Tickets On Sale Now

This is an event we’ve been dreaming of for more than 2 years.

We are excited to bring you RECON Boston this August. We have an incredible team behind it and we’re not taking the conventional convention path. We’re taking you on a journey. It’s going to be something special.

Everyone who attends will experience a blend of fantastic speakers, local escape games, games at the event itself… and we’re bussing everyone to Level99. Plans are in motion and we want you to be a part of them.

Adventure awaits. Get your ticket while you can.

ICYMI: RECON 21 After Hours with Neil Patrick Harris & Escape This Podcast

As part of RECON After Hours, we hosted a live Escape This Podcast play along extravaganza.

The live event was a ton of fun with an energetic discord chat full of entertaining gifs and helpful suggestions.

If you weren’t able to attend live, you can still play along from home on the Room Escape Artist YouTube channel.

Hosts Bill Sunderland and Dani Siller of Escape This Podcast were joined by players Neil Patrick Harris, Emily Jillette, and Harrison Greenbaum.

This trio of talented puzzlers and entertainers was – you guessed it – great at solving and highly entertaining.

This is an audio escape room. You can view the accompanying images here and play along.
