What commonalities do you have as a team?

Bring people you know you’re going to get on well with. Don’t bring those who are likely to bicker, or fight to be the centre of attention. Bring people with you that all have something in common, whether that be friends, siblings, or those that you work with. The stronger the team, the more likely you are to be in with a chance of winning.

Key skills and finding those all important clues

You’ll also want to work with people who all bring some key skills. We’re talking good communication skills, problem solving, analytical/logical skills and people who are good at delegating. This will help you find the clues, solve them and escape the room. Hopefully, it’ll also keep you on track and focused, to avoid any petty arguments.

Search everywhere

We place our clues in places you wouldn’t expect to find them. In other words, they’re well hidden. Don’t assume that a quick, cursory look around will lead you to them just like that. You’ll need to be smart. Check the door frames, under the carpet, under and inside books, and basically every little nook and cranny you can think of. Gather the clues, once you’ve found them and keep them in once place. Don’t leave them scattered every which way you can think of. Careless storage of clues will mean you could lose any one of them, and this could cost you the game.

Work as a team

We’ve already mentioned that it’s a good idea to bring people who will bring their best game, people you get on with and those with the kind of key skills you’ll be needing. We also suggest you don’t bring people who’ll dominate the game and leave everyone else out. There are those who only want to be in charge, take over and be the overall winner. There’s no ‘I’ in team, and these types of people are the sort you want to leave behind.

Delegator and motivator

What you do want though is a ‘delegator,’ someone who will guide, encourage the team to success and boost each player. They may not necessarily need to take part, but just be the type who is good at managing the whole thing. By that we don’t mean dominating, but delegating tasks to the team, cheering people on and leading them to areas where there may be clues.
