If you’re looking to conquer some of the best escape rooms, you are going to need a good strategy to do so. Here are a few strategies to help you on your quest.
Pick A Good Team`
Your team is only as strong as its weakest link. At least, that’s how the saying goes. You should comprise a team of people you are comfortable with and who all work well together. The last thing you want is to waste precious time arguing when you could be solving the puzzles. We recommend a team size between 4 to 6 people, as this will allow you to have enough minds to focus on different puzzles but not so many that the small room becomes chaotic.
Know The Rules of The Room
Each room will have rules associated with what you can and cannot touch. As well as age restrictions and how to receive clues. Most rooms have a 60 minute time limit, but it could differ from company to company. You can find common escape room facts and rules from Maze Games FAQs page.
Don’t Explain How You Solved A Puzzle
Your main strategy should be to quickly move from puzzle to puzzle. To do so, you can’t try and explain how something was solved because this wastes precious time. Move on and talk about it after your hour is up. Also don’t get too caught up in yourself if you solve a puzzle. The last thing you want is overconfidence which leads to mistakes and ignoring other people’s potentially correct ideas. You need to work quickly and as a team in order to succeed.
Use Your Hints
Use the clues the game makers offer. There is no pride in running out of time because you refused to use helpful hints when you got stuck. The clues are an important aspect to the game that can be utilized to your advantage. So use them.
You might say having fun is not a strategy but it truly is. When you get all worked up and upset at a puzzle, you think less clearly and your chances of success go down. You need to keep a positive mindset and enjoy the room.
