The State of Games, Ep. 181: The One About the Great Escape

stateofgameslogonewSometimes you just need a good escape, whether its to a condo on the beach, to a secret island controlled by a mysterious doctor, to the depths of the sea, or just to the kitchen table with a good board game. We’re not taking a deep dive into the sea, but we are going to take a deep dive into escape rooms and board games that adapt that experience. And, as we are wont to do, we are going to ramble quite a bit while we do it. Honestly, you’d be disappointed if we didn’t.

    Thanks for putting those Grand Gamers Guild Holiday Hijinks series on my radar. I just ordered them and plan to play them later with my daughters. They’ll enjoy that. Escape room style games offer fun puzzles to solve, and the good ones also wrap those puzzles in a compelling narrative. Beside EXIT, Unlock! and Deskcape, I’d also recommend Decktective. I really enjoyed putting on my deerstalker cap and trying to solve the mystery of the last Decktective game I played as if I was Sherlock Holmes.

    Awesome! I think you and your daughters will really enjoy those games. They are a ton of fun. I have not tried Decktective, but it sounds like something I would love! I will have to look into, and then TC and I can try it out.
