Are you looking to raise the bar for this year's birthday party? Pictionary and drinks are fine
... but no one will be talking about it at the office. The best way to instantly
level-up your party mojo is to host a rip-roaring escape room party! But should you choose a mystery escape room party or a zombie escape room party? Tough decision. Don't worry, we'll give you the hints you need to host a party that your guests will never forget!
Everyone loves escape rooms, but it's likely that few of your friends have played an escape room party. (If you're still new to the whole 'escape room' concept, read this article
for a full run-down). So, here's how at-home escape room parties are different. DIY escape rooms have all the fun of a "professional" escape room without the costs, travel, and devious gamemasters doling out hints with an eyedropper! In short, they'll love it, because you get all the pros without any of the usual hassle (which means everyone will be asking you to host another
escape room party soon... so prepare for that).
The good news for you is, most of the setup work is done for you. Set up and tear down of your DIY escape game takes only a few minutes. Download the game, print it out, and set it up. It's that easy. Each game features customizable posters to use as decorations around the room, enhancing the "escape room" feel. You get to decide whether everyone plays at a table or whether you turn your room into a 1920s mansion or post-apocalyptic landscape.
The best part — you
can play the game too! A spoiler-free setup and virtual gamemaster allow you to participate in the game alongside your friends. You could
choose to be the gamemaster, but playing the game is so much more fun!
Now that you have decided to host an escape room party, you must pick your game. Will it be Envy
, the 1920s murder mystery with the Great Gatsby feel? Or will it be Escape Room Z
, where you try to keep the zombies from stealing your pizza?
