Five More Things to Do DURING Your Escape Room Game by Alicia Tiu
After all the preparations for your game, now what? There are plenty more tips to help you survive your game, and even set a new record timing! Here are 5 more things you can do during your game, as recounted by game master Alicia:
- Consider all options.
Often, we may tend to dismiss minor details, like behind doors and pictures. This could waste you precious minutes and effort, trust us, sometimes the most crucial clues are hidden where you would never think to look! Ever had the nagging feeling in your stomach that you are missing out on something? This means its time to trust your gut feeling and look over even the smallest possible options. Take your time to look through all possible clues in the Escape Room, and don’t dismiss something just because it is small.
- Split up to find clues.
Splitting up to solve clues often allow you to cover more ground and go over a greater number to possible hiding spots for clues. It also allows you to solve certain puzzles which need you to be in two places at once. Moreover, there is a saying: Too many cooks spoil the broth! Crowding together in one side of the Escape Room Singapore would make it harder for you to solve small puzzles like padlocks and may even make you confused if everybody is talking at once. This makes the next the next tip even more crucial:
- Delegate work.
A group would be able to work faster and more efficiently if all the members has a clear task to do. For example, friend A could be in charge of holding torches and shining where the party needs it. Friend B could be the one checking and confirming the physical clues, while friend C could be the one keying in a number into a number lock. Having a clear role also prevents possible disagreements that would waste even more precious seconds.
- Take your time.
Paradoxically, rushing to finish your game quickly could hinder your progress greatly. Take your time to read clues and go through all possible hiding spots. This will ensure that you will remember the clues needed and won’t accidentally miss out on some crucial clues. You may even find that the more comfortable and relaxed you are, you would be able to finish the Escape Room game even faster. Don’t fret, you may be closer to the finish than you think!
- Feel free to call for clues.
Often people may feel afraid to ask for clues, or that they shouldn’t need to ask for clues much during the game. At Trapped.SG, we actually greatly encourage all questions and calls for clues, as we feel nobody should miss out on their game just because they are stuck. The game masters are friendly and are more than willing to give you a helping hand. Don’t be afraid or shy to ask! If you clear your doubts early, you would have more time to finish the rest of the puzzles in the Escape Room. So next time whenever you are in doubt, give our intercom a call.
