What Is An Escape Room?

According to Wikipedia:

An escape room is a physical adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles using clues, hints and strategy to complete the objectives at hand. Players are given a set time limit to unveil the secret plot which is hidden within the rooms. Escape rooms are inspired by “escape-the-room”–style video games. Games are set in a variety of fictional locations, such as prison cells, dungeons and space stations, and are popular as team building exercises.

The rules are simple:

Your team (2-10 players) goes into the escape room and the door closes behind you. Once inside, you’ll have 50 minutes to master a series of puzzles, riddles and mysteries to complete your mission.
