At Last, a Guide for the Hardcore Fans

It's quite unnatural that you can find tons of beginner guides on how to escape room puzzles, yet barely anything for those who are escape room aficionados.

Interesting. Isn't it?

One may think that since advanced players are, well, advanced, they wouldn't need any tips on escape room puzzles. They could just escape easily, right?

Wrong.

Just because you're an escape room enthusiast doesn't mean you can escape every puzzle room out there. Some puzzles are just more difficult than others.

Remember how Sherlock Holmes always had to escape from Professor Moriarty's trap? He did it by using his wits, of course.

And that's exactly what you need to do when you're up against an escape room puzzle that's giving you a hard time.

So, without further ado, here are some tips on how to escape room puzzles for advanced players:

Restrict the Number of Players

If you're an experienced escape room player, then you know that more people mean more noise and distractions. To increase your chances of solving the puzzle, it's best to restrict the number of players.

Having too many people in an escape room can also be a hindrance because you might not all fit in the space provided. This is especially true for smaller escape rooms. Moreover, having too many people will reduce the time you get to solve the puzzles.

And if you're still not convinced, think of it as a James Bond mission. Would he take the whole team with him or just his trusty sidekick, Q?

So, the next time you're planning to escape an escape room, make sure to limit the number of people. If the game can accommodate up to 10 players, try playing with just 5.

Assign Roles

When you have a smaller team, it's important to assign roles so that everyone knows what they're supposed to do. This will prevent any confusion and help you escape the room faster.

For example, you can assign one person to be the " lookout" while another person tries to solve the puzzle. The lookout's job is to make sure that everyone is on the same page and to spot any potential clues that they may have missed.

Assigning roles is also a good way to make sure that everyone is contributing to the escape. After all, escape room puzzles are not meant to be solved by just one person.

You can also consider this activity as a mission briefing like in the movies, where each squad member is assigned a specific role. This will help you focus on the task at hand and escape the room in no time.

Avoid Wearing Distracting Clothes

When you're trying to escape an escape room, the last thing you want is to be distracted by your clothes. So, avoid wearing anything that's too loose or too tight. You might also want to avoid wearing anything with a lot of patterns or bright colors.

You should pick clothes that are comfortable and won't distract you from the task at hand. After all, the goal is to escape the room, not to escape your clothes.

And if it helps, consider wearing dark colors. Darker colors tend to be more calming and can help you focus on the escape room puzzle.

Carry Essential Items

You wouldn't want to be caught in an escape room without the essential items, now would you? So, before you enter the escape room, make sure to bring a few essential items with you.

Some of the essential items you might need include a flashlight, a pen, and a notepad. These items will come in handy when you're trying to solve the escape room puzzles.

Flashlights are essential because they can help you spot clues that are hidden in the dark. Pens and notepads, on the other hand, are essential for taking notes.

Like Sherlock Holmes, you might need to use your deductive skills to solve the escape room puzzles. And having a kit like he had will definitely help you escape the room like a pro.
