This week's episode sees Ben and Laura attempt to make an explosive exit from the smelliest of prisons - a bath bomb shop!
Cue Jamie's ropey European accents, left socks and flavoursome soaps.
Did you find our cheeky little Easter egg in this episode? Let us know on Twitter or Facebook if you did!
And yes, Jamie does say "audio descriptions for the hard of hearing' at one point. And no, he didn't realise what he'd said until it was much, much too late.

This week join Ben, Danny and Alan as they find themselves caught in Mike's Machiavellian scheme of treachery, betrayal, and some very unsubtle puzzles. Mike was revoltingly pleased with himself for this one.
Spoiler alert! If you want to be in on the joke from the beginning then read on...
This is the message Ben, Alan and Danny received before the recording:
Hope you don’t mind but I’ve got a cheeky request. For the recording tonight, you have a super secret mission. You are a saboteur, and it will be your role to stop the other two from escaping by solving the exit door puzzle. If the other two get you to admit to being a saboteur then the doll (which will make sense at the time) will get you, and you’ll be ejected from the recording and into the lobby until the others have escaped (or failed). To keep things fun, there will be one or two very subtle clues that something is afoot, but it’ll be up to the others to spot them.
If you want to play along with the puzzles, here's the plaques:
- Benedict arnoldO
- Scar from the lion kingU
- Jamie LannisterIE
- Guy FawkesEAE
And the dreamcatcher beads:
- 3 TRST
- 4 MKS
- 1 D
- 2 NT
- 5 MSSG

Don't let the title fool you. Jon does his best to be dark and creepy while the others consistently undermine him with gags about buttocks, scarecrows, and the many ways in which an abandoned car with a birds nest growing in it might no longer be road worthy. Oh and there's bodies. Lots of bodies.

In this Episode, Jamie takes Mike, Laura and Dom in to the Oubliette of a pop culture classic, where he confounds them with an infuriatingly well constructed puzzle.
Also, here's a few visual assets if you're following along at home. Ye gods how we wish we'd found them sooner!

A long, long time ago, we did a corporate gig. We also did a rehearsal with some friends and family and, by way of thanks, we offered them the chance to choose a venue for a future episode. They chose Madamme Tussauds.
What could be more charming than an idle wander through the wax works of this great institution, respectfully looking, not touching (and definately not stabbing, Alan), adhering to all signage and staying on our side of the venerable velvet rope.

There's some dodgy capitalisation in that title...ho hum!
This week Ben is joined by special guests Lee and Adam from The Average Games podcast as Mike takes them through an apocalyptic board game cafe. Mysteries and Meeples abound as we journey within three of Mike's favorite games, and try to keep a step ahead of the Final Barista.
You can also hear these lovely chaps on some other podcasts. Go check them out at Wreckage RPG and Geeks Journal for dessert.

This week join Danny, Anna and Jon as they find themselves confronting Mike's terrifying creation of Mecha Richard Osman's deadly quiz show.
Massive thanks to Hill Burton for suggesting the quiz question puzzles for this episode - they're absolutely fiendish and it was great fun building a ridiculous episode around them.
Also you might notice that this episode has some iffy audio! Poor ol' Danny managed to goof on his audio settings and recorded his voice track with his webcam rather than his very posh and expensive microphone. Also our track backup solution (CraigBot) has been letting us down of late - so no backup. Whoopsiedoodles.

Is this our shortest episode ever? It could well be - join Aled, Laura and Jamie as they storm through Dom's sneaky post-it production line puzzle.
Also Mike briefly shows up to say the hellos, and then pisses off downstairs for what he thought would be a lovely quiet beer.

We're joined this week by Cici and Brandon from ESCAPETHEROOMers; an Escape Room focused youtube channel and review site, based out of New York. Jon picks their brains about their show, the industry more generally and their favourite UK room, then we get down to the good stuff and give them a room to solve!
Will Cici use Delilah in the right orifice?
Will Brandon make it through the show with that much whisky inside him?
Has Jon considered the consequences of giving his solvers access to the miracle of Fire?
Tune in and find out!
Ever had that dream? You know, the one where a giant four year old decides to play dressup with you after setting an arbitrary thirty minute Escape Timer? Yeah, me too. And now, so have Dom, Mike and Aled.
Will Mike make a good Baby?
Will Dom ever sound happy on the inside?
Will Aled leave Mike hanging?
Tune in, find out!

Hi folks, bit of a special one for you this week! We got contacted by the Puzzleverse Inc a few months back, wanting to know if we'd like to play and record one of their rooms. We said yes, and this was the result! We had an absolute blast, and our host Jayden was great.
So bit of a departure this week, as you join Mike, Ben, Bailey, Tony, Aled and Laura in solving a crisis on the International Space Station!
We've done our best to describe what we're seeing on the stream and screen as we go, but heck - if you're just missing big group escape rooms this might provide some lovely soothing ambient audio to take you right back to them.
We'd heartily encourage you to check them out if you fancy a fun group escape experience. You can check out their games at https://www.thepuzzleverse.ca/
We are returned! And Normal Service has resumed. And by "normal" I mean a half dozen unbroadcastable outbursts followed by some light philosophy while locked in an Imaginary Fun Prison. Alone.
Poor Danny, Poor, Lonely, Danny.
EDIT: There was a technical issue with the end of this episode. I've fixed and reuploaded but you might need to refresh your feed/redownload for the fixed version to come through.
Welcome back from the TIERrifically good holiday!
This week join Anna, Chris, and Dom as they attempt to prove their innocence at the customs office!
What will Dom try to rub in his gums?
How does Chris forget his ability to get hot and sticky?
What does Anna have on her new t-shirt?
Some things you will never know! But for others you'll need to listen to this week's episode of The Infinite Escape Room!
