    WHAT DOES ESCAPE KIT CONTAINS ESCAPE ROOM AT HOME BEST ACTIVITY
  • Yes, it’s a cooperative team adventure designed for a team of 3-5 players.

    If you have more players, feel free to print a copy of the game for each team. In this case, the groups will compete to finish first. For example, for a group of 25 players, print the Escape Kit 5 times and make groups of 5. If you have more questions on how to play with an Escape Kit with big groups, check this article out.

  • Novice, intermediate or experienced? There’s something for everyone! Discover the different levels of our Escape Kit on this page!
    Very easy level: For young children between 3 and 6 years old who are experiencing an Escape Room for the first time. A parent or guardian is required to accompany them.
    Easy level: Suitable for young players who do not have a lot of Escape Room experience. A Game Master is recommended to guide them through the game session.
    Intermediate level: players who know a little about the world of Escape Rooms and like the challenge!
    Difficult level: These Escape Rooms are designed for an older audience, or for groups of players of various ages (a mix of teenagers and adults is ideal). The riddles and puzzles are more challenging.
    Expert level: Are you a fan of Escape Rooms and have been playing for a long time? This level is for you!

  • Are you on a computer?
    Look at the printing guide to help you!

    If you’ve run out of colored ink, you’re able to print all of our kits in black and white, except for “The cursed treasure”.

  • The required equipment:

    • Computer
    • A printer
    • A filled ink cartridge
    • Scissors
    • Pens
    • A cutter
    • Glue
    • Tape
    1. Divide the group into several teams of 3 to 5 people who will compete to be the big winners.
    2. Each group can play simultaneously.
    3. Print one game for each team.
    4. Put each group in a different room. Set everything up in each room. We recommend you don’t to disperse the elements in the house (kitchen, bathroom …), as this complicates the game.
    5. Before everyone splits into separate rooms, review the rules of the game, then start the countdown and put on the background music.
    6. The first team to finish the game is the winner.
    7. Create some dramatic build-up around the revelation of the victorious team, as this will be one of the highlights of the challenge for your players.

    During the game:

    • Your role will be to make sure the game flows smoothly and to provide clues.
    • For each clue, give the team a time penalty.
  • Of course! Delineate a play area and arrange the elements on the walls and on a table. You can install the game wherever you want. 🙂

    Discover our tips on how to organize an outdoor Escape Room 🙂

  • Yes, we provide you with a guide of clues and answers to help you if necessary during the game to move forward freely.
    This page can be read by:

    A facilitator who will not be playing the game and who will have the role of Game Master to help the players if needed

    A player, designated as the team leader, who will have the page on his phone and will click on a clue if needed.

    The person who will be preparing can play the game, except for the search part, because he/she will obviously know the hiding places.

  • When we design our kits, we don’t know the layout of your homes or apartments or even gardens. All the games can be done in one single room, but also could be spread out across multiple rooms.

    Want to play with multiple groups?

    • One room per team: For multiple groups, this is the best option. Ideally, keep the rooms close to one another so that the game master can keep an eye on each group.
    • One big room: Separate the groups in one big room with chairs/table/cords. All the groups should have their own game space in order to not mix the game elements.
  • Of course! We’d love to see photos of you and your loved ones enjoying your time playing our games. In doing so, you’ll be helping us share our concept with the rest of the world. You can send us your photos to contact@escape-kit.com or via Instagram

  • It is possible to play virtually (via screens) by dividing the roles or by creating two teams.


    Two options are possible:
    1. Both teams print the game and compete against each other. They install the game in their respective spaces and start the timer at the same time.
    2. One team plays while the other remote team is in control of the game and manages the instructions, the correction of the riddles and their resolution.

  • There has to be a first time, right, haha? Our kits are designed to guide you through the game in a clear and concise manner. You will have at your disposal:

    • A setup guide: Explains where to start, how to cut and install the game with our tips.
    • A page of clues and answers: To help players move forward during the game (if needed).
  • Absolutely! Our kits can be played all year round: a birthday party, a night out with friends, a family weekend, at school… But we have three Escape Rooms kits perfect for Halloween!
