Escaping The Puzzleverse Inc.’s ISS Crisis

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/

2021 TIER Holiday Special, EP2

Join the TIER team for episode two of their holiday mini-series.  Follow Jamie, Jon, and Ben this week as we turn to Mike's lovely view out of a window.

Does Jamie have a stomach of steel?

What will Ben try with a small pump?

After everything that we've tried to censor in the past, what hill will Jon die on?

Questions, answers, and probably more questions are to be found in this episode of the TIER holiday special!

2021 TIER Holiday Special, EP1

It's July and the TIER gang are going on holibobs! But don't fear, we shan't leave you high and dry - you're going to get a four part mini-series!
This week, bask briefly in the sun before learning how our four presenters get locked into a beach hut. Jon leads the puzzling by putting us in a potentially explosive predicament.
 
  • Which one of us will wield the power of attraction?
  • Who can see the bigger picture?
  • Are any of us left flagging...?
 
Answers and yet more questions lie in this weeks episode of TIER!

It's another cheeky Glassless chaps mini, this time coming from your boy, sweet Danny Nicholls, sharing his love of the brown stuff with the creamy topper if you know what I mean wink wink.

If you like these cheeky minis, let us know on the Twitters, or at Facebook.

Dragons and Dungeons Special Part 4 - Words hurt, but not as much as an ork and a halfling

IT'S THE FOURTH AND FINAL PAAAART!

You know the score - if you haven't listened to the other episodes then whiz back and give them a schwiz. It will all make much more sense. Here's:

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Join our merry band as they conclude their fangrobulous premier adventure:

  • Jamie - Our noble GM and high quality prop photoshopper
  • Tony - Dwarf Rogue Caskell Marwen, the aunty in sensible shoes
  • (Emma) Bailey - Half Ork Barbarian Bailinator Jones, so full of rage she might need a little sleep
  • Ben - Forquare Quendian, the Halfling Wizard, tiny psycopath and concealer of cages
  • Mike - Human Bard Clam Strumlington, master of genital insults

Will they find Pilchard Pete? Who's doing that horrid chanting? Aren't tombs supposed to have dead bodies in them someplace? If you're any way intrigued by those questions then give this sweet mess a listen. Also if you want to play along with the puzzle, you'll find the following visual aids tres useful:

We hope you enjoyed this brief departure from our normal format. Normal service will be resumed next week...until our Christmas specials :D

And yeah, hit us up on the Twitters or the Facebook. Or if you're mega cool and want to help us out with our hosting and software, head along to Patreon.

(By the way - we recorded this miniseries in two monster recording sessions. We've broken them in to smaller chunks to keep it all sensible and listenable. This is first part of the second recording, which clocked in at just shy of three and a half hours 0_0.)

Dragons and Dungeons Special Part 3 - The Rat and the Pilchard

PART 3 BABY OOH YEAH

If you haven't listened to Parts 1&2 then slow down cowboy! Give them a listen first and this whole crazy kahoot will make sense.

Last time we found ourselves murdering the local wildlife in search of Pilchard Pete, with a tame goblin in tow. Rejoin us as we stand at the entrance to some sort of deliniated tomb, with:

  • Jamie - Our noble GM and goblin impersonator
  • Tony - Dwarf Rogue Caskell Marwen, cockney flower
  • (Emma) Bailey - Half Ork Barbarian Bailinator Jones, the boss of cross
  • Ben - Forquare Quendian, the Halfling Wizard, and vermin conjourer
  • Mike - Human Bard Clam Strumlington, the chocolate teapot of the party.

Why not cast your eyes over this mysterious puzzle component as well...

If you like the episode, and want us to do more weird and wonderful stuff like this, then why not let us know via the Twitters or the Facebook? Alternatively you might be too busy being the coolest person alive, in which case you should probably head straight across to our Patreon.

Dragons and Dungeons Special Part 2 - The Ork Meets The Pork

Iiiit's Part 2 of our Dungeons and Dragons Special!

If you haven't listened to Part 1 then hold your horses! Everything will make a whole lot more sense if you give it a listen first :)

Last time we found ourselves dropped in to a fantasy world, slapped with new identities:

  • Jamie - Our noble GM and owner of a seductive barmaid impersonation
  • Tony - Dwarf Rogue Caskell Marwen, and stealthy watcher of old men
  • (Emma) Bailey - Half Ork Barbarian Bailinator Jones, and the bane of slow table service
  • Ben - Forquare Quendian, the Halfling Wizard, and seducer of grunting hand models
  • Mike - Human Bard Clam Strumlington, wants a shag or a sandwich and isn't fussy which.

...join us in part 2 as we escape the tavern, and throw our puzzle solving skills to the wind as we start putting the hurt on the local wildlife. Meat's back on the menu boys!

If you like the episode, and want us to do more weird and whacky stuff like this, then why not let us know via the Twitters or the Facebook? Alternatively you might be too busy being the coolest motherfucker alive, in which case you should probably head straight across to our Patreon.

(By the way - we recorded this miniseries in two monster recording sessions. We're going to break them in to smaller chunks for the episodes themselves to keep it all sensible and listenable. This is part 2 of the first recording. Due to the length of the recordings, we've not been able to give these quite as much attention to detail as we'd normally try to, so do please forgive us if you hear any unedited farts.)

Dragons and Dungeons Special Part 1 - A Criminal Intro

Iiiit's Part 1 of our Dungeons and Dragons Special!

We've been making escape rooms for over two years now, so we jumped at the opportunity when the lovely Jamie Gibbs from the Armchair Escapist offered to give us a fortnight off to play a short escaperoom adjacent D&D campaign, with puzzles, goblin abductions, and nice bread.

So join...

  • Jamie - Our noble GM and master of a thousand rustic voices
  • Tony - Experienced D&D player, consumer of birthday beer, and the Masonry obsessed Dwarf Rogue Caskell Marwen
  • (Emma) Bailey - D&D newbie, baker of banana bread, and the faces to the wall half ork Barbarian Bailinator Jones
  • Ben - D&D newbie, awful punsmith, and Forquare Quendian, the Halfling Wizard
  • Mike - D&D agnostic, hungover, and the dinner and dicking focused Bard, Clam Strumlington

...as we find ourselves trapped in this new world, slammed in to new personalities, and attempting to escape the crazy fantasy world. Oh yeah and don't worry - there's still a good old escape room puzzle in there you lucky folk.

Here's the resource you'll need by the way for the puzzle...

Glassless Chaps Ep1 - Golden Glory

Here at The Infinite Escape Room we love a snifter, and this series of irregular, bonus, mini episodes, we'll take a break from puzzling to wax lyrical about the drinks we love.

In this first, pilot episode - I'll be getting misty eyed over Golden Glory. My favorite beer ever.

Just to reassure you, this is not sponsored content, but brown envelopes full of cash are still welcome.

The Mix Up podcast, whose No Country for Old Albums format influenced this show, can be found here. Shout out to Kyle - love the show!

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.

Advent Calendar Countdown - It’s bloody Christmas day innit

H MY GOD IT'S FINALLY CHRISTMAS, and the last in our 12 mini episode advent calendar countdown specials :D

It's been a hell of a ride. We're probably going to take a little break at new years - but if you've enjoyed this mini series then give us a shout via the twitters @TIER_Podcast

We love you lots, tata!
