Questions about ESCAPE MAIL

Each episode is a little different but generally speaking there are two main differences between Beginner, Standard, and Expert:

1. The flow card is not included in the Expert version (with the exception of one Episode)

2. Some puzzles are more obvious (for example, more explainer text, or red circled items etc) in the easier variations.

If you've never played an escape room before, we recommend starting with the Beginner version. If you've played a few before, then the standard version is a safe bet. If you're a puzzle junkie, then you'll definitely want the Expert version.

And remember, each puzzle we make comes with helpful clues on our /hints page. Therefore, anyone is able to complete any level of difficulty, making #EscapeMail a great team activity.

Each episode in Season 1 can be completed by itself without using any of the materials from any other episode, however the overall story after episode 1, may be less clear if you aren’t playing each episode in order. If you’re curious, start with episode 1 as it can be best enjoyed on its own. We will be releasing standalone adventures in the future!

Depending on the amount of hints you choose to look at, it can range widely, but expect anywhere from 1-2 hours on average, with episodes 10 and 12 taking 3 hours each.

Like any escape room, our puzzles are best solved in small groups. 2-4 people can gather around the items in the package and solve together. If you have more people in your group, you might want to consider buying more than 1 copy, so each person has an asset in hand.

Yes! You will see the 4th piece in another episode but you only need 3 to solve this one ;)

For the most part, yes! All our videos are hosted on YouTube which supports subtitles. However, in 1 or 2 episodes there are audio files without subtitles.
