So what is an escape room adventure?

So what is an escape room game? Escape rooms or escape games are real-life live-action-themed rooms in which your team members are given a one-hour timer or more to escape. Each escape room has a different themed room where your group will work together to solve challenging puzzles. The escape room experience is such a unique real-life adventure because it’s an activity in which participants collaborate as a team in a safe environment to achieve a successful escape.

How smart do you need to be?

Aside from the info we have already given you, the games require a basic understanding of math and the English language. Everything else is up to your intuition, logic, and deduction skills. No other outside knowledge is needed to solve our game. If something is needed to solve the room we will provide it for you. For example, when you play the Dead Man’s Hand, you will need to play out some poker hands. If you do not know how to play poker no worries, there are items in the room that will assist your group. Don’t forget we are always here to help.

What to expect?

The goal of an escape room or escape game is getting out of the room, or in the case of Spymaker escape rooms, solving the mission within 60 or 75 (in some rooms) minutes or less. Playing the game can be best achieved by applying teamwork, communication, exploring your surroundings and a little detective work.

An escape that is a success will require you to find hidden clues, observe details, explore, incorporate puzzle-solving skills and solve challenging puzzles throughout your surroundings. So take a look underneath the rug or sift through the books on the shelves, and take a closer look at all those paintings on the wall. You may find a string of numbers you need for a combination lock or a good number.

Great stuff, but how do escape rooms work?

How escape rooms work: You enter into a room filled with puzzles, clues, and riddles. You have to solve these problems to escape the room within the time limit that you are given.

Don’t worry, we’ll release you when your time runs out.

What is a successful escape?

To escape the room you will need to do this in less than 60, or 75 (in some rooms) minutes.

Actually, you are never “locked-in”, you will always have the ability to leave the room at any time.

Are the rooms difficult?

Escape rooms are not necessarily difficult. The rooms are designed to challenge your wits, and for most people, it can be challenging to accomplish the mission in less than 60, or 75 minutes. But don’t let that discourage you, the goal is not just about making it out of the room. Plus we offer unlimited clues if you need help along the way.

What makes a room difficult?

The difficulty of escape rooms is dependent on the theme and design idea of the room. Spymaker’s puzzle level goes from beginner to advanced which means that some challenges are easier for beginners and some more challenging for those with more experience. All Spymaker adventures have different difficulty levels, with most of ours having between a 15% -38% success rate. With that in mind, it should be 100%, as you control the game and may request as many clues as you choose. Humans tend to be a bit competitive, however.
