Today, we’re going to take a look at what type of players come to play in our Escape Rooms. There are several different types and it’ll be interesting to see which one you consider yourself to be. We see a lot of different personalities here at Escape, we welcome all of them – question is, which one are you?
Firstly, are you a lock picker?
This is a good thing not bad, after all you’re trying to find your way out of a locked room in under 60 minutes. These are the types of people who think analytically and are good at problem-solving. They’ll go straight for the numbers game, trying to work out puzzles and how to solve them. They like to spin those numbers and work out as quickly as they can, how to escape the room. Actually, with us, it’s not about solving a lock combination, it’s about a team game, finding a series of clues and all working them out together.
The one who’s always organised
This is always a good thing and you should include one in your team when you come visit us at Escape. They’ll be really good at sorting out all the information, the clues, and assigning people with things to do. You’ll be good at prioritising and tackling difficult problems that are too hard for everyone else.
The born leader
You like to give directions, but you’re not overly domineering. You like to keep an eye on the team, and you’ll be eager to make headway as soon as you enter. You’ll be able to keep track of what’s going on and assigning people with certain tasks. Your role will be similar to that of the delegator.
You carry the team, give directions, talk to them confidently and make them feel you’re their safety net. You’re insightful and see the bigger picture, you’ll oversee the whole thing in its entirety and then watch as the ideas work themselves out in front of you. You’ll lead and everyone else will follow.
The eagle eyed one
You definitely need to bring this person along! They’ll be able to spot a needle in a haystack and they’ll be brilliant for spotting and finding the clues. Don’t let them get distracted, make sure they only have the clues as their main motivation for being there. Sometimes sharp-eyed people are so good at spotting things they get easily distracted by another shiny object. Keep them on task with the clues and they’ll be one of your greatest assets.
Whichever type of player you are, we’ll have a role for you here at Escape Edinburgh. Our Escape Games are suited to every personality type and we know you’ll have a great time while you’re here. Just book your themed room online or over the phone and we look forward to seeing you here, whichever type of personality you are.
