My friend just introduced us the Escape Room The Game & we are hooked. My girls and I played the first game Prison Break by together because my friend had already played it. We played the second one, Virus, with her.
The object of the game is to escape from a room in 60 minutes by solving the clues. It is recommended for 3-5 players ages 16 and up. Each room has three parts to complete in order to escape. They each contain multiple puzzles, charts, and pictures to help you decipher the code to escape. Once you have figured out the code you must put the keys in the Chrono Decoder. It will alert you if the code is wrong or right. The Chrono Decoder also keeps the time by counting 60 minutes down. If you haven't escaped the room in 60 minutes it will start counting up after the 60-minute countdown. After so many minutes the Chrono Decoder will beep to indicate you may read a hint card that will help you with the mystery.
We escaped the prison in 66 minutes, but we chose not to use all of the hints. We also went over the hour in Virus. While escaping the prison we did have to guess at one part, but we must be good at guessing because we did get it correct.
We are looking forward to escaping from the other two rooms & we will probably play them soon.
