Escape Room the GameEscape Room The Game

Do you like playing games but are tired of board games the offer little more than rolling dice and moving game pieces!

Do role-playing games test your patience when they drag on for hour, days and sometimes weeks and are so complicated they take all the fun of competition?

Are you tired of video games that drain all the imagination out of players, instead only offering stunning graphics and pre-determined outcomes?

If so, then Escape Room The Game from Spin Master (Identity Games International BV) is the game for you to end those boring game blues!

In Escape Room time is either your friend or enemy depending if you put in the right code in the Chrono Decoder.  Put in the wrong code and you loose precious minutes.  Put in the right code and you’ll proceed to part 2 and in part 3 you can even stop time itself!

Four keys are needed for each section.  Put them in the right order and you proceed.  Put them in the wrong order and time suddenly slips away!

No man is an island, as you’ll quickly learn, as players must work together to solve puzzles and find clues.

The Chrono Decoder starts ticking off 60 minutes.  Will you take away your time or add to it.  The intensity increases as players rush to move from part 1 to part 2 to part 3 and ultimately win the game. 

Will you escape during a ‘Prison Break’? Avoid the ‘Virus’?  Successfully outrun the “Nuclear Countdown’? Or find your way out of the ‘Temple Of The Aztec’?

Be sure to examine every clue from important documents to puzzles and floor plans so you can successfully escape and proceed to an even harder level.

With a little teamwork, quick wit and few hints dropped here and there you’ll survive—maybe.

Included with the game are:

An Electronic Chrono Decoder

A Hint Card Decoder

16 Keys

32 Hint Cards

4 Different Adventure Pack

Game Rules.

Jeopardy!, Tension,

This That & Everything and Urban Myth

Has your 'life' become nothing more than a 'trivial pursuit'?  Has your time become 'monopolized' and mundane?  Are you ready to take a 'risk' and take-on a new 'operation'?

The best way to do that is to expand your mind, face new challenges and increase your knowledge.

Forget TV, movies and video games.  What you need is a good old-fashioned dose of game play and Outset Media has just the games for you!

Each and everyone is guaranteed to test your knowledge, perfect your gaming skills and hone your competitive edge.

Four new games will challenge you and your entire family, ages 12 and up.

My wife and I are big fans of the TV show Jeopardy!.  Most evenings we sit and watch and match our knowledge against the contestants.  Unfortunately Jeopardy! only comes on once a day so its not always convenient for us to watch as we may have other things to do that take up our schedules.

Never fear! Outset Media has the answer with its new Jeopardy! Deluxe Edition that proves every bit as exciting and challenging as the TV version.

One player is the host while other players take on the tough questions derived from all different areas of knowledge such as history, popular culture, etc.

Just like the TV series players play Jeopardy!, Double Jeopardy! and Final Jeopardy!-all of which are timed.  The game includes 252 Cards, 6 Game Stands and 1 Bell.     

Feeling a little tense?  You ain't seen nothing yet! The Tension game ups the ante as it challenges you to make 10 correct matches in under 60 seconds!

All gamers have to do is match the answers on game cards!  It's fast, fun, frantic and frustrating!  It's Tension. Two hundred Double-sided Cards, an Answer Tracker, a 1 Minute Sand Timer, a Game Board and 2 Pawns are included.

Is your team up to the challenge?

So you think you know it all?  Want to prove it?  This That & Everything will put your knowledge to the test as you attempt to describe six people, places and things in 30 seconds!

It takes a real team effort and lightening fast answers to win this game.  Do you have the brains to pull it off?

Game contents include 396 Cards, a Score Pad, a 30-Second Timer and Instructions.

Are you ready for the truth?  The truth is in here with Urban Myth.

Not everything you've heard or read it true.  Many of the things we take as facts are nothing more than hearsay and products of overactive imaginations.

In Urban Myth you're tested to determine if you can tell the truth from myth.

Two or more players must differentiate between pop-culture myth and fact in a game that is sure to challenge just how savvy gamers are.

Completely unique, Urban Myth includes 6 Game tokens, 6 True/Myth Voting Cards, 500 Game Cards, 1 Game Board and 1 Instruction sheet.

As with all the new Outset Media games Urban Myth comes packaged in a heavy paper stock box that will stand up to years of play, colorful game pieces and cards and easy-to-follow instructions.

I can't wait to play each game with my friends and family.  All the game provide a great way to learn new facts while having a wonderful time with those we love.

Lab expansion, crystal analysis, submarine docking, bot repair and activation and the capture of Octobots must be done as quickly as possible.

But, there may be spies making your accumulation of knowledge fraught with danger. Role the dice, refer to lab tiles and markers and tally up your score to see who wins.

It's all-out undersea action and intrigue that is fast-paced and can hit players like a tsunami!

History has changed, the Confederacy has survived, the Indian Nations are in an uprising, monsters and other ghosts and ghoulies room The Old West and the super fuel Ghost Rock has advanced technology to a dangerous level in a primitive land.

chronicles-of-darknessChronicles Of Darkness Revised Storytelling System Rulebook

Have you ever gone into an empty room and thought you saw something or someone out of the corner of your eye?  Have you seen indistinguishable shapes lingering in the shadows?

Have you ever heard unusual sounds that you know emanate from nothing animal or human?  Are there monsters under your bed or in your closet?  Do witches, warlocks, demons, monsters and other ghoulies exist?

I for one believe they do.  As a Christian I know there are unseen evil forces at work that if witnessed would chill your blood and send your heart racing.

There are evil forces present all around us, manipulating events and seeking out those they can destroy or coerce.

In The Chronicles Of Darkness Revised Storytelling Rulebook gamers are given a tour of worlds very much like our own (or maybe it is our world) that are populated by things that go bump in the night.

The Rulebook explains to gamers how to create such imaginative worlds, game scenarios, characters and the who, what, where and how of each game campaign.

Certain rules must be adhered to such as limits of powers, abilities and the like.  Storytellers are responsible for creating scenarios and drawing other gamers into their dark realms and continuing to keep the games exciting, involving the gamers and responsible for moving the adventures forward.

Examples and tips in the Rulebook aid both game masters and participants as to the possibilities of the game and what to expect from the unexpected.

Experience, accumulated knowledge and teamwork drives each game scenario forward, encourages more complex game mechanics and ultimately draws both novice and veteran gamers into each exciting excursion into the unknown.

The Chronicles Of Darkness Revised Storytelling Rulebook by Onyx Path Publishing makes for the perfect reference for those about to enter the worlds of the macabre, horrific and mystical.  Are you ready to delve into the dark?
