What is an escape room?

 

An escape room is a scenario-based, live-action puzzle game. You and your team are in a highly immersive environment attempting to locate and solve different clues, puzzles, and riddles, in order to “escape the room”.

The player is emerging from a pair of small wooden doors and is glancing a few wanted posters.

Who should play?
