Vancoufur in partnership with Clued In Gaming is pleased to bring a new experience to the convention this year in the form of an Escape room!
What is an Escape Room?
An Escape room (Also known as an Escape Game), is a game which a team of people cooperatively discover clues, solve puzzles and accomplish a set of tasks in one or more rooms in order to achieve a goal in a certain period of time, generally the goal is to escape the room.
If you have never done an escape room before they are a highly popular form of entertainment and Clued In Gaming has created a custom themed experience for our attendees this year to immerse you into the gritty cyberpunk world of Neon City. Take on the challenge with your friends and see if you can beat the clock and escape the room, and complete the mission.
How do you play?
Take your ticket to the Clued In Gaming table to redeem and schedule your game. At the time of your play through, show up and there will be an orientation on the rules and goals of the senario. After this, the clock will be started and you will begin to play the game. Players explore, find clues and solve puzzles to achieve the tasks required to win the game. You will have 30 mins to complete the game.
Who is this suitable for?
This Escape room is suitable for adults and children 10 and up, and all participants require a ticket to play. ( this includes parents if you want to go with your kids). Each team can have up to 6 members. Put your team together and take the challenge as a group, or show up as a singleton and meet new friends as you take the challenge! Just make sure you each get your tickets before they are sold out!
