So which type of Escape Room player are you then? Are you the geek that really goes in deep and is all about the detail, or are you the relentless hunter who won’t give up until the final whistle blows? We’ll take a look, and we’ll see that every type of player has their role to play. Don’t give in to your weaknesses and make sure that regardless of the type of player you are – you’re a team player and you play to win.
The Relentless One
Are you the one with a fixed stare, the one who starts searching, looking and interrogating people and objects from the get-go? Are you the one everyone else is just a little bit scared of? Perhaps then, you’re the Relentless One, he/she who must win at all costs and find every single clue and not give up until the very last second of your hour has been devoured. You’re determined and you’ll never give up, you’ll be an asset to the team, just make sure you’re not still looking after the game’s over and the lights have been switched off!
The Obsessive One?
Perhaps you visit Escape Rooms all over the country in a bid to try them all or beat your own time. You love it so much you know all the rooms and don’t care who knows it. You may even have a scrapbook of your Escape Room adventures. No one will know the game better, no one will be able to work the way you do, because nobody knows the game the way you do, inside and out.
Are you the one who takes control – but in a good way? You’ll be the delegator, leader and peacemaker in one. The person who makes sure everyone is on task and getting on with it. You can stop the arguing, if there is any, in its tracks and you’re always the voice of calm. Yes, the game wouldn’t work without you there to delegate and smooth over any disagreements.
Yes, he or she who picks at every lock, goes over every single clue meticulously and knows each clue and riddle intimately. You’ll be discussing each one in detail at the pub later to anyone who’ll listen. In the meantime, you’ll be the one with the focus while you’re in the room, finding the clues, solving them and understanding every single riddle and rhyme until you know it off by heart.
The Indecisive One
You’re the one who is here now and then somewhere over there later. You’re all over the room, all over the clues - and frankly all over the place. You can’t seem to decide what your role is, and you can’t make your mind up about what to do next, there doesn’t seem to be much method in what you’re doing and you’re desperate to help, but can’t seem to focus very well. This could cost everyone the game if someone doesn’t knock it on the head. It could be a matter of someone keeping an eye on you, and you’ll be glad of it, making sure you’re given one task at a time that you can stick to, focusing your attention where it’s most needed.
