Spend an evening unravelling the mystery. Find clues, solve puzzles and escape before time runs out!
Escape the Room games began as digital adventures and quickly turned into real-life events all around the world. In both versions, players are locked in a room and must uncover clues and hidden objects to escape.
ThinkFun’s version of Escape the Room allows you to bring home all the excitement of this experience, without actually locking anyone in a room, of course! The event is designed so even the host can participate with no setup necessary.
In the box: Instruction Manual, Scene Card, 5 sealed Envelopes with 5 secret Items inside and the Solution Wheel.
The event is for 3 to 8 players. There’s even a webiste with a suggested invitation and ideas to set the mood for the evening; music, costumes and more. So what are you waiting for? Invite some friends around for dinner and start solving.
Size: 260mm x 210mm x 50mm If you’re completely stumped ThinkFun have provided Hint Online as a last resort!

Mystery at Stargazer’s Manor (now sold out)
It’s 1869 and the town’s well-respected astronomer has not been seen since the untimely passing of his wife. Recently, strange things have been happening at the manor – loud and unfamiliar noises, an unpleasant smell, and smoke billowing from the observatory.
First there were TV game shows like Now Get Out of That, The Adventure Game], The Crystal Maze and Fort Boyard. Next came escape the room type video games like Robamimi, Neutral, and Tesshi-e. These video games then inspired the creation of physical adventure Escape the Room games where players solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues to hand to escape a real room. The first was Real Escape Game developed by 35-year-old Takao Kato in Kyoto, Japan in 2007 but they’ve spread all around the world since then.
Now you can enjoy all the fun, challenge and solving at home with friends with these Escape the Room mystery solving games.
