Episode 49: Escape Rooms at Summer Camp
One of the things Curt “Moose” Jackson is most passionate about is a well-made escape room!
In this summer “quick bites” episode he shares his secrets for a great low-cost escape room program.
He explains what characteristics define an escape room, and what the most important component of an escape room is. (Pssst… it’s a storyline!) AND he shares his resources from his blog post to his ebook for creating themes or storylines.
He also answers the age-old question, “why have an escape room?”
Curt touches on everything from decorations and use of space, to game design & rules.
He also gives us tips on how to choose a game master, managing group dynamics, what meta puzzles are, debriefing, and facilitation.
He gives storyline examples from barns to offices, and actually has his office example on Patchwork Marketplace.
He also offers alternatives to escape rooms – what a gem!
