A Escape Room or live escape game is a free time activity thought for couples and groups of people consisting of finding clues and using logic in order to solve puzzles and riddles, with the goal of completing different tasks and in the end escaping the room before time ends (usually, the available time is 60 minutes). The intention behind the game is to stimulate:
This escapism game is carried out inside one or various rooms that are decorated according to the designated theme of the escape room. They’re rooms prepared for this use and full of riddles and mysteries that will have to be solved in order to advance.
In escape rooms you will find objects of all types that you will have to use to fill the different tasks in hand. This will be accompanied with a series of clues and riddles to stimulate all five senses, from texts to read to sounds and smells.
All rooms will be surveyed and controlled at all moments by a game master, who will provide any extra needed clues when the players precise them, and will also ensure the game is being carried on in a fluid and civil way.
Before the game, there will always be a brief explanation of the game operation and the different rules in it, to clarify what’s permitted and what not and to answer any doubts the participants may have. Once everything is clear, the adventure starts.
Escape Rooms appear as an alternative to already existing free time activities and are available for most public, generally over 14 years old. Live escape rooms claim to be an excellent option for those who seek to spend a fun time exploiting their logic, strategic and cooperative capabilities, as they are thought for groups between 2 and 6 people in general, although there’s always exceptions and games for bigger groups.
It’s definitely a new free time activity to have fun with other people in which you’ll exercise your brain, test your wit and interact with other people in order to complete the tasks in hand before time ends.

As the name says, escape rooms are carried on in one or various rooms inside a same space, whether it is a flat, a commercial space or an industrial unit, all of them suited for each case.
Each space has a different theme that counts with numerous decorations, with different sections full of games and mysteries, and doors that will have to be opened, with help of a key or any other method, in order to continue.
It’s the person assigned to management of the games, with the motivation to encourage and help players so they have more chance to complete the tasks, as well as the job to ensure everything carries on normally and without any accidents during the game, reminding the players of aforementioned rules when necessary.
Besides that, the game master will also be able to announce how much time is left, parts of the story of the game and various messages to disconcert the players or give the game a pinch of humour or fear.
For the escape games, groups may vary between 2 and 6 players, double when the game occupies two rooms at the same time, which will consist of 4 to 12 players divided equally in both rooms. In exceptional cases, like the game Víctima 17, the groups will vary between 10 and 50 people, as it is a game that can be adapted to the number of participants.
In all of them there will be a maximum number of players at the same time, and all of them will have the goal to boost team work, mental agility and resolution capabilities to decipher each riddle and go on. It can be considered as a group therapy activity that besides being fun, can help improve relationships and strengthen bonds between the members of each team.
Riddles to solve are the base of this game, which will have to be completed in the correct way and inside the time limits required by the Game Master. This said, we will be able to find an unlimited assortment of tests and mysteries: puzzles, riddles, object sequences, logogryphs, hieroglyphs, numerology, calculus, word and letter games, etc.
