This is the moment when all the elements come together.
Write your history points on different Post-It. Then, arrange them as an organization chart of what is happening, where and when. As most Escape Rooms have a lot of things going on in parallel, this method will help you organize.
Each of these Post-It will become a challenge or puzzle in your Escape Game.
Well… okay, I’ll be honest. In fact, you will change half of your challenges before the game is over. But hey, you have to start!
Converting your flowchart into the history of a series of puzzles is surprisingly difficult. The best way I found it to do is to add as much detail as you can now.
Start by adding Post-It to represent objects from your story. I prefer to use paper of different colors for objects to help visually recognize each idea.
Keep going until you have a clear story in your head because it will save you a lot of time when it comes to designing your puzzle.
