5+1 advice that every escaper should know
Be the best escaper with Budapest’s best escaperoom
Escaping sometimes can be harder than it seems. Sometimes even the best teams can get stuck because of mistakes that are silly. Missing details that may seem little but actually are important. Our gamemasters see a lot of these mistakes day by day done over and over again. Watching even the best groups fall into such petty traps they learned so much not just about their jobs but about playing pro.
In this article we are going to share with You 5 + 1 bonus advice that will help you and your team become the best of the best escapers.
The first and most important thing is to know your teammates well. Trust is very important when it comes to escaping. You have to understand each other and communicate well with the ones you play, so it’s a good idea to play with your friends or family members. You have to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses so that you can easily work together. And also make sure to share EVERY information with your teammates. And we mean literally everything. There’s no such thing as a bad idea, and even the smallest details are important. But in addition to finding all the useful information…
… you have to observe everything in the room. Most teams only concentrate on the complicated tasks and don’t bother looking around first. When you enter a room make sure to check every corner and open your eyes. Sometimes the smallest things are the most important ones. So while you’re searching for clues, don’t forget to check every little detail.
We understand that after a while it’s frustrating if you’re standing in front of a closed door or lock. These times it seems easier to use force but it’s NEVER the solution. We never heard or played in an escaperoom before where it’s necessary to take apart anything. If your combination of numbers or letters are not working or the stuff you do doesn’t have any outcome that means your solution is not good. So don’t be stubborn and definitely do not try to use your superhero powers, but only your brain and cooperate with your teammates.
Help is not for dumb people and it doesn’t mean your not smart enough, but a necesary part of the game. The majority of groups need some hints. So it is not embarrassing to ask for help! And even if you don’t ask for it yourself, the gamemasters most probably will send you hints anyway, so why not ask for it yourself?
It’s a common belief that the more people you come with the easier the game is. But it is definitely NOT true. Even though the maximum number of people we allow to go to one room is 6 but most of the time even 6 proved to be too much, not to talk about 7 or 8 people. What is so much more important is that you practice a lot and don’t start with the hardest room. There’s no such thing as “too easy”. When you do an escape room for the first time, everything is new. It doesn’t matter how many degrees you have, only the amount of experience you have.
+1. This is just a game!
But most of all, don't forget that it is just a game, not a war. Don’t waste your time on stressing or fighting, just enjoy every minute you can spend with the people you love.
