    Guests Matthew Mercer, Marisha Ray, Laura Bailey, Travis Willingham, and Christopher Sabat come together and try to banish the evil sorcerer and escape!

    We’ve locked celebrities in a room together and thrown a bunch of puzzles and riddles at them to see if they can free themselves in under a half hour. Janet Varney hosts as we bring the escape room phenomenon to the screen.

    Did we make enough Jurassic Park jokes? Not enough? Let us know in the comments below!

          My only experience with an escape room is having my gf doubting that any of the objects are clues while I figured every step out. We found a laser pointer and she thought it was a key... I told her that a key looks like a key... Later I found that key we were looking and it told us what to do with the laser pointer in riddle format. This was the last step. I and tried to shine a laser pointer through the eye of a skull but the angle was off. Time ran out and I asked them what was left. They said that I had to use the mirror to reflect the laser into the eye. Another clue that she said was useless and tossed aside. X_X Needless to say, I'm girlfriend-free now.

                Jesus, 1 riddle with an ambiguous answer is usually a bad thing to have in an escape room. But NINE that all have to be done again if just 1 is wrong, and the players have no way of knowing which are correct (like a sound effect or something), is just horrendous level design!

                  Oh lord, and clues that are hidden out of reach which obviously encourages the players to look in other inaccessible places (like climbing furniture)... who made this??

                    Not to be too nerdy, but the translation guide for the runes is way off lol. For instance. They have the “I” with the squiggly horizontal line going though it as L when it’s actually N
