Do you remember the last time you did something fun with your friends? Was it a BBQ? You played some board games, maybe some sports? It feels great to do something together, doesn't it?

Do you remember the last time you did something fun with your friends? Was it a BBQ? You played some board games, maybe some sports? It feels great to do something together, doesn't it?

That’s exactly the kind of itch that escape games aim to scratch. Many of your abilities and skills will be put to the test in order to escape: logic, ingenuity, dexterity – but more importantly, you’ll need a good team.

Since the time is limited, it is important to solve the tasks quickly and together, so start the game by distributing the tasks among yourselves. This is not that easy oftentimes and you need to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses to pick the right person for the right puzzle. Do you have a friend who’s good at math, one who can think outside the box, or one who possesses great coordination skills? If so, make sure to take them with you!

It’s no coincidence that everyone suggests taking your friends or colleagues along – communication is of key importance. The better you communicate, the easier the game will be for you. If you understand each other from half a word, you will definitely need less time on each puzzle. Another advantage is that you already know each other's strengths to some extent, and you can build on that when allocating tasks.

Teamwork in escape rooms

The ideal team - just like the ideal game - is diverse. Similarly to a well-functioning workplace, the secret to success is to give everyone a task that helps them make the most of their skills. We all have our strengths and weaknesses and can therefore contribute to solving different tasks.

Just as no two games are the same, no two teams are alike. There is no secret recipe for assembling the team either. However, there are positions and roles that will almost certainly develop. Such is the role of the leader, who holds together the separate activities. Among colleagues, this role is not so simple - it is far from certain that the workplace boss will be the best choice to lead the team to success in the escape room. In addition to the leader, there will be need for a sharp-eyed team member who misses no detail or clue, and another team member with the ability to read between the lines and reveal the hidden connections between the clues. It’s also worth keeping in mind that since it’s a game, a jokester teammate can lighten the mood and thus help with the pressure and hurry-scurry, as the ultimate goal is to have fun.
