Well, it's the end of the world. And quite frankly, the zombie apocalypse would have been waaaay more fun to deal with!
Instead, we're stuck with hand sanitiser that costs you your firstborn child, an endless toilet paper fetch-quest, and enough voice-muffling face masks to turn the entire population into a skittish Bane impersonation.
To top it all off, now you and your family are locked inside the same house for a full 14 days... how long will it be before the battle royale begins?
With a printable escape room kit, you can avoid the family free-for-all entirely!
Don't wait until screen-zombification sets in before you start actively using your time. Take control of your quarantine!
Our printable escape room kits have a proven track record of rallying restless kids and captivating fidgeting adults, all without relying on cheap screen-time.
The printable puzzles included in each kit fully engage your mind in logical problem-solving, thrilling critical thinking, and satisfying teamwork.
The thematic challenges are super exciting (don't tell me you've never wanted to bust into a top-secret facility!) and are designed to get you 'into the flow' alongside your friends.
All in all, it makes for the perfect self-isolation game to transform quarantine into a spine-chillingly satisfying experience.

Follow the link in the email to download the escape room kit. Don't worry, it's all digital, so your pristine game kit will never be handled by smelly trolls or infected zombies.
Then, simply follow the included directions to print your escape room kit on your home printer. It's that easy!
You'll need a mate to watch your back when you face off against the zombie horde. However, you'll never live it down if you end up spreading the virus to your entire contact list! Escape room games are nowhere near as much fun alone, so what do you do?
If you're already self-isolating, keep your distance and don't invite anyone else to your home. Print off the game, and play it with your fellow survivors in quarantine (but watch out for signs of any of them turning?)
If you're not in isolation, then totally invite your friends! Our escape room kits work perfectly for any group size, from two people to 200 people!
Our resident elf clerics recommend keeping your group small, as directed by your local public health authority. The epic escape party sweet-spot is between 4 and 10 players.
Just brief your players, drop the papers onto the table and shout "Go!" to get the thrills started immediately. This is the easiest way to set up the game and makes for a frantically fun night of problem-solving as you scrabble over the kitchen table.
Clean up a room in your home and designate it as the 'escape room'. You might even decide to create a 'multi-stage' game by splitting the puzzles between two rooms. Unlock your inner Easter Bunny and hide the puzzle and clue sheets around the room. Your players will need to hunt down the information they need before they can solve their puzzles. (Just make sure to give them clues if they still can't find your deviously-hidden puzzles!)
See our puzzles guide for tips and tricks to hiding stuff like an escape room ninja.
Immerse your players in their quest by theming up the room with the included posters, extra props, and fun decorations. Dollar-store trinkets, toys, colored paper, and fancy dress costumes are tried-and-true ways to get the heart pumping. You can also set an appropriately epic mood using the Spotify playlists bundled with each kit.
Adding physical components will really take your game to the next level. Grab any cheap padlocks, bike locks, or kitchen cupboard locks you have laying around, and incorporate them into your escape room game.
You might use a combination lock to be solved with our number puzzles, give your players the key to a padlock as a reward, or maybe even lock their dinner in the oven! Gasp! Have fun with it!
You can check out our puzzles page for inspiration on locking things up well.
Of course, zombies happen, however, your party doesn't need to be the source of the next outbreak. Here's what you can do to protect yourself and your players from catching any nasty bugs:
Escape room games + good snacks = an unforgettably awesome time, every time!
People love to play, to laugh, and to eat (goblins love these things too). So why not combine all three as you wait out the apocalypse?
Adding snacks is always a win, however, in this case our elf clerics recommend taking a few extra precautions, such as:
Creating an escape room game is the captivating creative challenge that we all need right now.

Just print the kit from your own home to crush boredom, solve puzzles, achieve goals and cruise through self-isolation like a boss!
You can even customise the escape room kit to create a whole new escape room game (just like this teacher did). For the devious masterminds out there, this translates to infinite replayability!
