Escape Rooms Games

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Escape Room Game?

Rogue Agent and Sherlock: The Grand Debut are interactive online games that you can play alone, with those at home or friends, family and work colleagues around the world.

Once you purchase your game you will be sent a link to access and start your game. Tp play with others from multiple locations you use a video calling app such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams. The main player shares their screen taking help and advice from the rest of the team to complete the game.

How many people can play?

We recommend up to six players per game.

If you have more than six people, then split them into teams of up to six and purchase a game entry for each team. You could set a challenge for which team completes the game in the fastest time.

Who can play?

The games are suitable for anyone aged 10 or over. Whether you are looking for something to do with friends, as part of a fun or party occasion, a team-building activity, or something to keep older children amused, it's a great way to create memories and spend time together.

How long does the game take?

The games take around 60-90 minutes on average. However there is no time limit to complete your game, so you can structure it as you want with breaks or set time challenges.

Do I have to book?

No, one of the benefits is you can play anytime and anywhere. As soon as you receive the code to play you can use this as and when you please.

Having some technical issues?

  1. Sometimes work laptops and computers block unknown websites. Check with your IT colleagues or switch to using a personal device. Note: All Escape Live websites have an SSL Certificate and are secure.

  2. If your game is running slowly, check you do not have too many other tabs or apps open on your device and close them down.

  3. If your game is running slowly you may want to switch browser. Escape Live games perform best on Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Safari. Make sure you have the latest versions of these browsers. The games will not work on Internet Explorer.

How do I get involved?

Make your game selection and click on the 'Get your Game' button to purchase your game.

How much will be donated to Help for Heroes?

Each game costs £20 to play. £10 will be donated to Help for Heroes with each purchase, which after taxes means £7.50 goes to support our wounded veterans and their families.

Who is the games provider?

We are partnering with Escape Live Limited which designs and delivers the games.
