Do you have any gameplay tips?

Sure! The Crooked Key gamemasters compiled this advice:

  • Separate and search! There is plenty to find. Work together, but don’t stay huddled together waiting for the loudest person to do something.
  • Communicate… if you find something, let others know. This helps everyone make connections, which is critical.
  • Distinct objects in the room generally have a purpose. There are some props, but no intentional red herrings.
  • Keep the clues handy and organized in case you need to revisit them.
  • There are no clues hidden in any lamps, electrical outlets, plugs or cords. Be safe.
  • There is no excessive force or extreme physical exertion required, so be gentle.
  • Do not tear down the walls or break apart furniture. Please respect our space.
  • Do not bring in tools such as screwdrivers or knives. They just aren’t necessary.
  • There is no need for a smartphone (outdoor game excluded). You will have all the information you need to escape the room in the room.
  • Double check each other’s answers and searches if you get stuck!
  • If you get stuck and are no longer having fun, ask for a clue from the gamemaster.
  • Don’t be afraid to be silly! This is a game – have FUN!
