Escape rooms are a type of puzzle or brain teaser in which individuals have to work together, using elements of the room that they know exist but may not be able to see, and other objects found along the way.
Rooms usually contain one main goal; for example, finding the key before time runs out, solving a series of puzzles such as math problems or logic puzzles until someone finds an object leading them closer to their target destination, stealing treasures from another individual’s room without being seen by patrolling guards, etc.
The rooms will often require teamwork between two people who need help with some portions but can solve others themselves. Escape games vary greatly in difficulty and complexity depending on factors including theme (e.g., detective based vs sci-fi), difficulty (e.g., easy vs hard) and total number of puzzles in the room.

Escape Room’s Objectives
The objective of an escape room is to find a way out within a certain amount of time by finding hidden clues and solving puzzles which are integrated with the theme of the game. Escape rooms usually consist of one main goal:
- To collect hidden items such as secret codes, maps etc.;
- Crack ciphers;
- Solve puzzles.
Escape rooms require a lot of thinking and creativity, which is why they are so popular among students as well as adults.
Escape Room’s Traits
There are many varieties of escape games, but they all share a few basic traits:
- Players must solve puzzles to find hidden clues that will help them advance through the game; these range from math problems or logic puzzles to word searches, secret codes, maps, ciphers and other tasks according to the theme.
- Rooms usually contain one main goal; for example, finding the key before time runs out, solving a series of puzzles such as math problems or logic puzzles until someone finds an object leading them closer to their target destination, stealing treasures from another individual’s room without being seen by patrolling guards etc.
- The rooms will often have various objects to help the player solve puzzles, as well as a way out once they succeed in solving them.
- The game is set up so that at some point players will get stuck and not be able to proceed without outside help (usually when all other clues have been gathered). This gives the players an incentive for seeking assistance from staff members or another player in order to bypass these difficult points and continue playing.
