Yeah but come on, even Mark and Steven struggle with deductions!

Re: The Game Is Now

I know when I've done escape rooms, they seem to be tailored to the group, so I don't think they would let people just get stuck with it.  It would be a really boring session!   If you're struggling, you get more hints - maybe not enough to "win", but enough to keep the session going and make it more fun. 

Personally, I'm quite hit and miss with working things out, so needed the hints!

Re: The Game Is Now

I've only done one...don't really remember us getting any hints...but then maybe I've blocked that. Actually possibly yes, maybe there is a phone to a staff member...I may vaguely remember.

True. But while sitting comfortably in front of my computer. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: The Game Is Now

Here is something curious. Please look at this link:

https://www.buzzfeed.com/scottybryan/sherlock-escape-the-room-london?utm_term=.urjmNObbgL#.yc8Y4wllQ0

You get an article with several pictures and one of those shows John, Sherlock, and Mycroft plus the smiley, right?

However, if you post the link for example on Tumblr and get a preview, you will see the same picture but of Jim, Sherlock, Mycroft and the smiley. Same goes for Facebook. You can try it out for yourself. Interesting.

Re: The Game Is Now

Btw, there are more differences between the two pictures. The one with Moriarty also includes parts of 221b, the skull, drawings, numbers … I wonder if this is part of the mystery.

Re: The Game Is Now

I only now realised that the whole of TFP is a sort of escape room …

Re: The Game Is Now

Exactly!  Me too!  I don't imagine we'd be in a bare cell, of course, but some sort of theming around TFP would be fantastic - it does seem an obvious choice!

Meanwhile, they are posting riddles on their social media accounts. It’s a contest open to everyone, and you can win some Sherlock goodies.

Re: The Game Is Now

Decision made: not going!
It has honestly been like herding cats...
But it looks like it just isn't going to happen for me.
Anybody else got or getting tickets?
Anyhow, at least I'm off to London next week and will attend my usual Sherlock Holmes society meeting.
