Heston’s Time Travelling Turkey Twizzler Caper

This week Danny, Alan and Jon try and solve Mike's frightful Heston Blumenthal time travel Turkey Twizzler puzzle, all the while uncertain as to whether something else, some deep dreadful metatask is at foot.

Spoiler, there is - but there isn't - BUT THERE IS.

Will they find the pretty much accurate secret recipe? Or will they succumb so suspicion? TIFO!

And as ever, if you enjoy the episode, why not chuck us a quid via Patreon, or hit us up on the Twitters or the Facebook.  You fab folk you.

Escape the Wizard’s Sleeve

Keep your mind out of the gutter, and your imagination in Gandalf's armpit as the gang find themselves the victim of a well intentioned magical whoopsie.

  • Will they listen for suspicious silences?
  • Will they check themselves before the wreck themselves?
  • Are hankies internationally recognised?

Tune in, find out!

Also this episode was recorded using a Zoom H2n in Alan and Bailey's lovely (if slightly echoey, sorry!) dining room.

This episode was snack sponsored by Enigmailed, who sent us some chocolate. You can support the podcast yourself by sending us snacks, or via our  Patreon.

Escape The Present

And wouldn't we all like to do that from time to time?

This week the team find themselves trapped in an ancient building and guilty of a heinous act of vandalism involving a giant golden crucifix. Can they put the pieces back together again? Tune in, find out!

Escape the ultimate betrayal at Traitors Rest!

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
  • BrutusO
  • Scar from the lion kingU
  • Jamie LannisterIE
  • Guy FawkesEAE

And the dreamcatcher beads:

  • 3 TRST
  • 4 MKS
  • 1 D
  • 2 NT
  • 5 MSSG

As always, if you enjoy the episode, why not chuck us a quid via Patreon, or hit us up on the Twitters or the Facebook.

Escape Madame Tussauds

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.

What indeed...

Zoinks! Escape the Wye Valley!

This week, join Bailey, Alan and Danny as they escape the harrowing Wye Valley. A camping trip, a great dane, an whole shitload full of rain. This episode has it all. And the crazy thing? It all actually happened.

Escape something going horribly wrong

This week we join Danny, Jon, Ben and Alan as Mike takes them through a seamless transition in The Infinite Escape Room, where absolutely nothing goes wrong and everything is fine, and did you sign the waiver on the way in? You did? Brilliant. We'll just keep hold of those next of kin details for just in casies alright? The Infinite Escape Room is definitely safe and absolutely not slowly shearing apart at the seams.

Also you might wonder what it is the boys are referring to. Here's a wee collage of all the different images they received:

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

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.
