A real life escape game Escape Games NYC traps players inside another reality where brawn can’t help them. Rather, players must access their skills of deduction, their imaginations, and their outside-the-box thinking to find their way back.
The Game Master
Upon arrival, teams of two to six players meet the Game Master, the only liaison they have to the outside world. The Game Master explains the rules: no outside devices are allowed and players must use their wits as a team to find solutions to the puzzles before them. When a brain teaser has them stumped, they’ll have three chances to request a hint from the Game Master, who might grant them extra time if they’re close to a solution or lovingly serenade him.
The rooms were custom-built to be completely immersive and wholly different from other live escape games, with narrative story lines fit for an adventure film or presidential biopic. Players dive into intense stories as they take on the role of detectives on a dangerous case involving the mob or find themselves on a spaceship that’s hit trouble on its way back to Earth.
