1. Get going right away

With only one hour to make your getaway, every moment is precious. Start plotting your escape and searching right away.

2. Search the room thoroughly

Whichever room you select, every nook and cranny can always contain possible clues. Go through your room with a fine-toothed comb to make sure no stone is unturned.

3. Listen to everyone

Everybody in your group will have their own ideas and ways of approaching puzzles. No matter how outlandish someone’s else plan might sound, don’t be afraid to give it a try!

4. Fan out

Splitting up around the room will be much more efficient than having everyone work on one puzzle after another in unison. Remember that you have strength in numbers, and don’t be afraid to split up.

5. Don’t overthink

Though the puzzles are meant to be difficult enough to be challenging and fun, if you find that your theories are becoming increasingly obscure, you’re probably overcomplicating things. Take a deep breath and step back to clear your mind.

6.Remember the backstory

If you keep your room’s theme and story in mind, it may help you figure where your next clue might be — look at the puzzle from the storyteller’s point of view.

7. Organize what you find

By methodically grouping the objects you find, not only can you help keep your group organized, but you may even notice thematic connections that you didn’t pick up on before.

8. Get a good night’s sleep

To ensure that you have your wits about you, try getting a good night’s sleep first. For added energy after your game, going out for dinner and a night on the town wouldn’t hurt, either!
