Escape the Basement

You respond to an ad for an open house, but when you arrive, the house looks abandoned – it’s falling apart. You’re intrigued and your curiosity gets the best of you. You can’t help taking a look around. But as you go downstairs, you hear a door close behind you…and lock.

Fortunately, there’s an elevator to safety, but you need a code to escape. Find clues etched into the wall and underneath items – each one leads to another. Collaborate with your team to solve puzzles, crack codes, and ultimately open the elevator! Race against your coworkers – can your team escape first?

We recommend a computer or tablet because of the larger screen size. However, when a cell phone is the only option, the game can be played on a phone as well!

Not much! Just yourself, your brain, and a device that is connected to the internet. You might find it useful to have a cell phone handy as we do allow use of the internet during our games. If your event is over Teams, Google Meet, or Webex, we also recommend scratch paper.

  • Please be sure to close all other video applications (Teams, Webex, etc) before joining the Zoom link.
  • For the best experience, join from the Zoom app rather than the web version. Participants who join from the web version can still play, but may not be able to annotate on the screen – which makes the game more fun!
  • If you have the desktop app downloaded, it will open automatically when you click the link. If you are new to Zoom, you will be prompted to download the app when you click the link to join. To prepare in advance, download the desktop app here.

The storyline does involve getting locked in a basement – but it is not scary or gory. Everything is suitable for the workplace and for all ages. Children even play this scenario and love it!
