Dear Scientific Community,
There is a grave error that must be dealt with at your earliest possible convenience:
There is no “E” on the Periodic Table of the Elements.
Don’t come at us with Helium (He), Beryllium (Be), Neon (Ne), Iron (Fe), Selenium (Se), Tellurium (Te), Xenon (Xe), Rhenium (Re), Cerium (Ce), Europium (Eu), Erbium (Er), and Einsteinium (Es).
Puzzle designers really need a straight “E” for their designs. Now, look… we’re not unappreciative of Erbium and Einsteinium. Er and Es certainly are useful in crafting messages.
We’ve already got I, O, and U from Iodine, Oxygen, and Uranium… why no E? And while we’re at it, T, R, and A would be extremely helpful.
So please go find another element or 4 and give them symbols that the puzzle community could really work with. And while you’re at it, quit doing shit like abbreviating Ytterbium with Yb. That kind of passive aggression doesn’t help anyone.

I know that there are quite a few hand-washing techniques circulating, but I’ve found this one particularly useful.
It surprises a lot of folks, but we don’t have many rigid rules or processes that we impose upon our escape room teammates. The only serious rule… NO POCKETS.
Also… don’t be a jerk, but that’s more of an implicit thing.
We’re usually good at handling backtracking.
I could have turned this into a meme, but this gif fills me with so much joy every time that it loops.
Does anyone know where this is from? I’m asking for a friend.
Ditto: Yelp & Google Reviews
Thanks to our dear friend James Cobalt for these two gems.
To find useful escape room reviews, visit RoomEscapeArtist.com. Trip Advisor, Yelp, and Google Reviews cannot help you find quality escape rooms.
Sometimes I play a bunch of games at one escape room company and imagine Christopher Walken must have been sitting with the company’s design team shouting, “I GOTTA HAVE MORE BLACKLIGHT.”
If this doesn’t mean anything to you, watch this.
