The Most Thematic Game You’ll Play – An At-Home Escape Room Game:
If you’re after a truly immersive experience, I just have to recommend that you try an escape room game. You don’t need to head out to an expensive venue though – you can easily replicate the whole experience in your own home.
This is because escape room games are designed to be ‘experienced’ as much as they are to be played. It’s not just a game, it’s a story that you’re trying to tell with your players.
The key is to sell the theme is with a few consistent props, an interesting story, and some puzzles that ‘make sense’. You don’t have to go all out.
