One-page answer sheet
How many room boxes do I need?
The ideal number of players in the room is 5 or 6. The maximum number we recommend for a room is 10. If there are more than 10 in the room, players become disinterested, disengaged and even distracting.
Operating multiple rooms at the same time adds to the escape thrill. Not only are the players racing against the 60 minute timer, but also the other teams. Rent an extra room for the adult advisors!
Can I play the room if I set it up?
Yes, all elements are included within the backpack. There is no advantage or hints given during setup.
Monitoring the room play
The 'brick and mortar' escape rooms utilize a gamemaster or monitor with the role of host, watching the group, providing hints and troubleshooting problems during game play. Usually, the monitor watches the players using security cameras in a control room. With a mobile room, it is a challenge to monitor the room without an elaborate setup.
We came up with an innovative way for the group to obtain hints on their own. The room includes QRcodes on each puzzle and near each lock. When players are stuck, they simply scan the QRcode on the item for a hint/clue. More is explained in the setup manual. It is recommended that at least one person still monitor the room(s) for youth groups with the one page answer sheet in the event that an item doesn't work or the group gets stuck.
The rental of the Backpack Break-in is available in select areas.
Cost of rental: $40 per box
