Houdini’s secret room is a full tactile game, which means that the whole game is played away from computer screens. There is an option to use a computer just to check all your answers and get hints, but that is also optional ☺
We believe that physical teamwork is much more fun, compared to the virtual one. That’s why we offer only tactile version of this kit. The only way to play it virtually is to print one copy for every kid and then try solving the puzzles together over zoom call. It’s a bit different concept of playing, that we believe will decrease the excitement a bit, but you can give it a try if there isn’t other option 🙂
Our games can be played in one team (2-6 people) or by multiple teams – like a competition. No matter how many players you have, just print one copy for each group!
We recommend 4 players per team as optimum number!
Just like in a real escape room you can unlock the mystery only once…. after all it isn’t fun if you already learn Houdini’s greatest tricks ☺ But you can print the game as many times as you desire, which means that it can be played countless times by your closest friends and family. It’s also perfect for events with a large group of players!
It can be played anywhere you want! No matter how big or small is the place, every space can be used to play it ☺ You can even set it up outside!
If you want to play along with the kids then you should use this Play Along Version, but if you want to set it up for them then go with the “Game Master Version”.
We made slight changes in the “Play Along” version in order to skip all the spoilers while setting it up. The storyline is the same, as well as the puzzles, but some of them are bit modified. Both versions are fun to play, so it’s up to you to decide ☺
Yes, a lot of kids and families had a great time playing our game. We get a lot of positive feedbacks. You can check some of the reviews on this page!
