You Know You’re an Escape Game Addict When…
“Spontaneity is the best kind of adventure.” – Anonymous.
Remember playing with puzzles and crosswords as a kid? You’d finish the puzzle but would end up searching for the last piece, only to find it hidden under the bed!
Or remember when you first played scavenger hunt? The clues were obvious but, as a kid, they were super confusing.
But more than that, it was an adventure of a lifetime. It was an unforgettable experience. And it opened your eyes to the many wonders of the world — treasures that need to be explored.
Escape rooms are like scavenger hunts and puzzles for adults; except they’re similar to Ender’s Game.
If you’ve been playing escape games for some time, you know just how addictive they are!
But are you addicted to escape games? Here are a few signs to look out for:
You’ll Drive 3 Hours to Get to One
Your friend’s birthday bash is this week. The main problem is that it’s 3 hours away! You contemplate whether or not you should go. You decide on not going and call up your friend, only to be told that they’ve booked an escape room.
You’ve never said yes so fast in your life.
Locked Out of Your House? Look for Clues
You accidentally lock yourself out of your own house. But fear not! You know exactly where the spare keys are. Or do you?
It’s time to look for clues!
They’re a Part of Your Monthly Budget Plan
You have a separate section just for escape games in your financial planner. Or else, you’ll become guilty of spending all your credit on them.
There’s no shame in that!
You Leave Message For Yourself
There’s nothing wrong with leaving yourself little reminders or sticky notes. Brush your teeth. Buy a liter of milk. Take the dog for a walk.
But when you use them as survival tactics, and you use glow-in-the-dark paint to get the job done, that’s when you know you’ve got a problem!
Not that that’s anything to complain about!
You Write Your Experience into Your Resume
Hey, it’s got to count for something, right? You’re proficient in Excel and escape room puzzles games! Perhaps you can ask for a bonus or a recommendation letter with your experience?
You Plan the Next One
Every addict knows that one game of escape rooms isn’t enough! Right after you’ve completed one, you’re off to book another one or find someone who’s willing to let you participate in theirs.
These are just some of the many signs of an escape room addict. But where there’s adventure to be had, the soul will find its way!
