Escape the Conspiracy filled Bunker

Escape The Lizard in the Locker Room

It's a super special mega episode! Longest episode everish! Most solvers everish! Mike, Ben, Aled, Bailey, Alan and Laura are escaping from a guest room - kindly supplied by Walter Miska, from his fabulous book Escape Passages Volume 1!

Listen as we don our American Jock personas to retrieve our faithful mascot, Kong, from those horrid Hordenwood Hornets and their locker room of hormones and LIES!

This episode is genuinely a window in to what it's like to solve a real life escape room with us. It's our usual hit squad, and hoo boy do we have to stack up the brains before we can solve a puzzle.

Walter was kind enough to give his blessing for us to record us solving this first room. If you'd like to GM this room yourself, or any of the other two excellent scenario's he's put together, you can find his book here at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Escape-Passages-Mr-Walter-Miska/dp/1087426871

Escape the Clock

This week Aled, Ben, and Tony find themselves in Chris' puzzling clockwork room.

Will our puzzlers get lost in time forever?  Or will they make time stand still?

Tune in to find out in the episode dubbed "The one that almost got canned"!  *

* Why?  Because:

  • Aled was asleep and we had to call him to get him on the recording
  • Tony's internet failed half an hour before recording, so we communicated with him over the phone
  • Chris has a new microphone setup which generated some buzzing (but he managed to solve it)
  • And lastly, when Aled hit record there was nothing showing on his recorder - then there was!  But in post we found that there was a terrible hiss on his track - Mike and I have cleaned it up as best we could.

Billy Bonus! Reviewing The Escape Game Unlocked - Volume 1: Chasing Hahn

Cheeky bonus episode! Boom! We got sent a digital escape game to review - so we did! We recorded this right after we'd finished the room, and rather enjoyed our first ever lockdown digital escape room. There's also a giveaway at the end for a lucky listener to have a bash themselves, courtesy of https://store.theescapegame.com/

NB: No brown paper envelope full of money changed hands, just Val being sweet enough to send us the codes.

NBB: Cherry bakewells are delicious but probably not the ideal metric for scoring escape rooms...because Ben and I don't want to share them.
