So, you want to design a great escape room for your friends but hate the excessive whining?
"It’s too scary! I won’t be good at this! I hate puzzles and games! There’s no prize money!"
Before you give up, let me show you how to create an escape room that even your pickiest friend (yes, that one) will love. Or at least enjoy. Or at least not complain too much about it!
The first rule - know thy friends. Understand what makes them tick. Do they like to read? Do they cut math classes in high school? Do they consider a full, rich day one spent watching cat videos and eating bonbons (who are we to judge, we could watch cat videos all day!)? Knowing your friends will help you understand how to create the perfect inclusive escape room. Just remember, you're making this for them
. So instead of focusing on fun, 'evil' puzzle ideas, focus on what they would want to see in an escape room game.
Then, once you've got them hooked, follow this escape room game design guide
to make something a little more intense!
