Over the past few years escape rooms have emerged as a popular new genre of real-world gaming. Combining collaborative problem-solving with immersive theater, escape rooms remind us of the power of physical presence and face-to-face interaction. Locked in a room with friends and strangers, players work together to solve puzzles and unravel the mystery to find their freedom.

Mink ette is a veteran game designer who has created several popular escape rooms and is a master of real-world game design. Join us for a peek behind the curtain and learn how these games are created.
