Epic Escapes Reviews

Review The Room Logo

“The next time we go on holiday with friends, Epic Escapes will be coming along for the trip. The games from Epic Escapes are one of the only play-at-home experiences we’ve found that, when played correctly, can accurately and easily transport an escape room into your living room. If you’re looking for something to spice up your usual boardgame night, look no further.”

“A really well designed, high quality, at home product, with a clear story and flow. Brilliant for first time escape roomers as the puzzles were well structured and understandable.”

Kent Escape Room Reviews Logo

“The components included for these experiences are an amazing quality and all reusable for future games too. Some of the paper components might get damaged, but these are available to be reprinted any number of times so you don’t need to worry about keeping everything pristine! Each game also comes with a set of clues to guide you if you get stuck and a solutions page for the host to read so help is always available!”

“What sets Epic Escapes apart from the other play at home games we have played, is that you’re provided with actual lockable boxes and padlocks (along with a couple of other things that I won’t spoil!) and therefore there is an added excitement for any enthusiast, and that is setting up the room itself, where all the padlocks have to be set to the correct codes and the puzzles aspects hidden in your room of choice!”

Good fun

Got the grey matter working. Took less than 1 hour but was good fun. Thank you


Found it quite hard, but got there with some hints.

A simple challenge

It wasn't a given easy you do need to use a little brain power but you get everything you need and hints to help along the way.

Enjoyable hour spent

Great way to spend an hour. Solved this on my own so had to use some of the clues. Got you think and looking back and fourth on the clues. Over all enjoyed it and now can’t wait to do another.

Solo Night Done Right

Had a great time! I was a little unsure about the set up at first as this was the first time I’ve done a at home escape room like this and the puzzles are non-linear. Definitely have a pen and paper to make notes! The hints came in quite handy so glad that was included. Took me just over 45 minutes to complete. I did over complicate some of the puzzles, mostly just to decipher what information was actually important. Have already recommended it to my friends 🙂

Great Xmas Eve Game

Kept the offspring entertained on Christmas Eve for 20 mins. Good simple fun.

Printable Escape Room The Murderous Scallywag

Great idea and loved playing it!


We found all the details we were meant to but had no idea what to do with them without the hints. There wasn’t enough of a narrative to take us through the game.
We’ve never played an escape room game like this, so we weren’t on the wave length.


Decided to be lazy this Christmas and buy an escape room rather than attempt to make one up %28like last year%29 for my adult children and spouses. I bought the download Christmas one to use on Christmas Eve and ordered the Epic Escapes x3 escape room one to use on Christmas Day. Totally awesome%21 Beautifully presented with lovely wooden boxes%2C good solid padlocks%2C etc. The host is given step by step guides to set up and play. The players can ask for clues which are also provided. Everything about these games has been carefully thought out. Follow up emails show customer service is very important to this company and even telephone numbers are provided if help is needed. %28Unlikely given the excellent host information%29%0D%0AReally pleased I bought this. So looking forward to running my first “professional” escape room%21

Top notch

Great idea and thoroughly enjoyable. 5 of us did it, me; wife; 2 daughters and granddaughter and we all really enjoyed it. Needed a bit of help so used some of the clues but done it in just over the hour. Really gets the grey matter going. Shall be getting the elf one next !! 100% recommend this.

Great game

Very interesting and fun game. Was a bit hard to figure it out, took us more than an hour. We did it with my kids, 9 and 8 years old. They were very excited about solving it.

Murderous scallywag

This was the first time we had attempted any type of escape room.
We struggled initially but gradually got better and managed to solve it although in just over an hour.
It was a fun experience and we would buy again.

Epic game

First time playing, i was impressed. Set up was great. Although challenging at times the team work helped .

Murderous scallywag

Really great fun, had such a good time, really made us think! Loved it!


A great game, had us thinking really hard. Great for some family time.

Brain twister

Really makes you think hard but a lot of fun. Can tell a lot of thought was put into it!

Fantastic ready to go escape rooms.

This evening we got to play two of the escape rooms from the box set.

I run a Ranger Guide unit. There are 6 girls in my unit, aged 14-16.

Having used various "pre printed" escape rooms and written a few of my own, I must say these are exceptional.

First and foremost: not only did I appreciate it as games master, but the girls loved the escape room.

I found the set up fabulous, the tick list is so convenient. Being able to find some joy in the solving of the story even when I know the solutions is a great way for me to still enjoy the game from the outside looking in.

Setting the combinations on the locks was a breeze with the clear instructions and they worked perfectly every time.

The hint cards are great. The frustration when they gave in and asked for one, only to find it related to something they already knew only added to the fun, for me anyway...

The presentation is beautiful. I honestly would keep this for the joy of looking at it over selling it on.

The cost seems steep at a glance, but for what you get, it's actually incredibly good value. The little touches, like inclusion of a pencil sharpener, the online timer, the branded lock boxes, go a long way for this too.

I liked that the "methods" were stand alone. So once you had used the constellation guide and opened the lock, it became irrelevant. The girls kept referring back to previous guides and equipment (one of the constellations matches the doodles on the ships log quite well!). Letting them know this fact was the only time any real direction was needed. I was able to leave the girls to it aside from the odd hint card.

For me there is a huge amount of replay ability in this box. So far only one has needed us to write on one of the paper props, which I realised a little late but the pencil rubs out easily enough.

A new unit could definitely lead to a replay of this, and I'm excited to play them all and look forward to expansion packs in the future.

All in all, it's safe to say they are looking forward to the "hard" one, they have already asked for me to allow a bit more time but provide no hints, we'll see how they get on!

Really makes you think

Brain stretcher

Great fun although we didn't completely solve within the self-imposed time limits. When looking at solutions it all seemed logical and frustrating as we were so close!

Got us thinking

As we had kids involved we did use the clues but it got us all thinking and was great

murder scallywag

Thoroughly enjoyed it and was fun

Fun but difficult

Really enjoyed this with my family , we found some parts quite easy but some really difficult xx fun hour or a little more xx

Good but hard

Really enjoy it but had to use the clues as we couldn't work out what we needed to look for. Good for the brain. Would deffo purchase another one as now we know how the game works.

Great fun

I printed this to take on a family holiday. As we were playing with children we used the clues to help. The children loved working out the codes to then help solve each of the puzzles. It was a great game for all of the family.

Fun and Not Too Difficult

Played on my own and really enjoyed the challenge. Took me a little bit to get started (had to refer to the clues in the beginning) but once I got going, I needed little help from the clues.
