    Default How to run or join an escape game.

    Hi everyone, since people seem to like my escape game I'll post a how to on running/playing in one.

    Escape games typically start out with the players waking up in a room and then having to escape, the escape can be from a single room or from a building. It can be scary, or funny, or anything the narrator wants. Typically two to six people can participate including the narrator.

    The narrator is the person who first starts the story, whatever this person says goes. Players are expected to post once per turn but depending on the story it may be slightly different.

    If your the Narrator
    -Keep your game simple, don't make it overly confusing or people wont enjoy playing
    -Make sure your active, if your not active then the game can't run.
    -You can spend as much or as little attention to detail as you want
    -What you say goes, if you say that the room spins then the room is spinning.
    -Make sure you clearly post you rules at the beginning of the game.
    -When speaking to a particular player it helps if you mention who your speaking to. I always put an @Player_Name before i say something, and if it is to all players i put @All.
    -If you want to speak off topic either put it in italics or with ( and ) around it so that people know it is off topic.

    If your a Player
    -Post no more than one time per turn. If you post more than once then the narrator can easily get confused
    -Follow the narrator's rules
    -When posting post as if your doing something, but don't assume something happens
    -Do post: Examine object
    -Don't post: Examine object and finds a needle
    -Be polite, it is difficult to narrate these games and if you spam the narrator with something they might get fed up and leave.
    -If you want to speak off topic either put it in italics or with ( and ) around it so that people know it is off topic.

    Example
    Allie: You wake up in a square pink room. There is a pink bed, and a pink dresser. The white door is locked.
    kingdomhearts123: you search the dresser for clues on how to get out. . .
    Allie: @kingdom: you find a worn leather journal, and half of a key.
    EatMonkies: Wakes up on the bed and hops off with a loud *THUNK*
    Allie: @Monkies: Welcome to the PONY escape game :-). Your job is to escape the pink pony land!
    EatMonkies: Take worn leather journal, and half of a key from dresser!
    Allie: @Monkies: You recieve a worn leather journal, and half of a key.
    As you take the key out of the dresser you realize that if you find the other half of the key and some glue you just might be able to fix it.
    EatMonkies: Examine floor
    Allie: @Monkies: The floor is covered with fluffy pink shag carpet, reminds you of the 70's. Searching you find a pony doll.
    This is a real example from a game on 8/19/09.

    Thank you to kingdomhearts123 and EatMonkies for being in my example.

    Most of all have fun and use your imagination!
