Spin Master debuts Escape Room: The Game

"As escape rooms have become such a global phenomenon, we saw an incredible opportunity to translate that experience into something even more accessible while remaining just as exciting."

Spin Master is bolstering its line of games with the addition of Escape Room: The Game.

Based on the international craze for escape room experiences, Escape Room: The Game will see players put their problem-solving skills to work and crack a code to win.

An electronic decoder timer device, known as the Chrono Decoder, is included in the game, and acts as a ticking clock that subtracts time for each wrong attempt.

"As escape rooms have become such a global phenomenon, we saw an incredible opportunity to translate that experience into something even more accessible while remaining just as exciting," said Danielle Armbrust, ‎VP of games at Spin Master.

"Escape Room: The Game isn't just a game, it's a true-to-life experience that we think will remind people that well designed board games are as relevant now as ever."

Four rooms are included in the game – Prison Break, Virus, Nuclear Countdown and Temple of the Aztec – while themed expansion packs are set for release in January 2017.
