At first being in an escape room might seem like a scary or even a boring game, but all you need is practice. However this is the opposite of what used to happen some decades ago. As you get used to playing the escape room game, you will realize that you have been overlooking at things and this is why you have been losing. As far as the essentials are concerned, you must have them all to be successful. This is because the escape room might be different but the same essentials will still be used. If you land with the best essentials like listed below, you will become a pro you always wished to be.
You might have missed the win when you enter the room because you failed somewhere. Having a group of persons who are not ready for the task means you will not get to any of the first levels. With that, you will always assure you have taken time in your team selection so that you can make it successfully. The first step is allocating each where he/she is best at. You can have a representative with better language skills to do the talking.
Overdressing is another rule for everyone who is participating in an escape room. Remember that you never know what activities you will need to do to get to the escape. You will not be in a position to climb ladders, squeezing at some passageways or even crawling for some clues when you are overdressed. You would start feeling tired while you have not completed the puzzles. If you have a pair of comfortable footwear, then pick them and put on sitting clothes.
If you are sure about the puzzled, you do not need to act anything like a monster in the game. You need to take your time, make every step needed in organizing the items with clues in one place with the rest of your group. Being a monster will mess you up because everyone will waste time waiting for you to find clues while you have no idea what you are doing. Keeping time is one of the rules you should never miss when in the escape room because it could be you will not get the clues to your exit on time, but you could spend more than organized. Let that person who is a communication pro let everyone know about the steps you have already gone through. Wasting time begins when you do not speak to each other in the escape room.
