Well, nobody solved the escape room in the allotted time but everybody had a good time and it was definitely a hit at the party. The last group that went through, we just let play until they figured it all out and it took about 5 minutes longer (the party was just winding down around 3:00 in the morning and at that point we wanted SOMEONE to figure it out!). The majority of the people missed the very first clue (the highlighted and italicized words on the medical chart) so they scrambled around trying every number combination they could find...hahaha. I think a big reason was because I mentioned the lock combination on the video, so everyone focused on numbers immediately. So lesson learned...watch what you say so you don't lead them in the wrong direction...hahaha. One group made it all the way through, but someone had reset the scale for weighing the heart from ounces to grams. So the number they kept putting in the lock was wrong even though they did everything right. That was my mistake since I never thought to check the scale settings doing my reset in between each group. But even still, they all had a good time. We definitely plan on doing another one next year, and possibly even New Years this year (ESCAPE FROM 2016...ooooeeeeeooooooo). I'll try and post some video once I edit it down to something manageable. And thanks for all the suggestions!
