PLAY-AT-HOME

You no longer need to leave your home to experience one of our fun and creative escape games!  With our Valentines themed game, we have brought the same level of challenging escape room puzzles and mixed it with a whole new way of playing!  With our play-at-home game, you will use a combination of printed material, along with our online game web portal, to solve a set of ten interactive puzzles. 

This game is suitable for all ages.  Difficulty of puzzles may vary depending on the group.  Hints are available on screen if needed.

 

You will only need access to a printer before starting the game to print the required material, you will not need a printer once you start the game. Access to a computer is required in order to play this game from home!

Purchasing of this game entitles you to seven (7) days access to the online game web portal, starting on the date of purchase.  After the seven days, you will no longer have access to the game.

THE STORY

You have been conditionally accepted into Cupid’s School Of Valentines.  Graduating from this special school will mean you have the skills and training required to become a Cupprentice (Cupid Apprentice).  In this role, you would be responsible for finding suitable candidates for Cupid to help fall in love on Valentine’s Day with the help of his magical arrows. In order for your acceptance to be finalized, you must complete one final exam, consisting of ten themed puzzles.  This exam will test all the necessary skills you will need in order to successfully become a Cupprentice!

WHAT TO EXPECT

By definition, this is not exactly an escape room in the sense you are not actually trying to escape a room.  That being said, the premise is the exact same!  You are going to need to solve some puzzles, one leading to the next, in order to finish the game!

If it's your first time trying an escape room or similar type of online puzzle, we've prepared a small little sample puzzle for you to try out and see if you can get the hang of it.  If you are experienced, you consider this a warm-up for the real thing!

The game is a flat rate of $20 plus tax. This is just a fraction of the cost of a in-person escape room as well as some other virtual escape rooms. You do not need to pay per person! You will also have access to the game for a period of seven days.




How many people can play the game?


There is no limit to the number of partiicpants, that is up to you to decide. You could play by yourself, as a couple or with family and friends!




Do we need access to a printer during the game?


No, you only require use of a printer to print out the game material prior to starting the game. Once the game starts, you will not need to print anything further. You could print a spare copy of the material if you wish, in case of any mistakes or errors along the way!




Is this game appropriate for kids?


Yes, as with all of our games at Mysterious Minds, we design our games for adults with kids in mind! This means that the puzzles will be challenging, but they are definitely solveable by kids as well! We also have a hint system integrated into the game if you require help at any point.




Can this game be played virtually?


The game was designed in such a way that all group participants are in the same physical space. That being said, it is totally possible to screenshare the game with your friends virtually. The printed material will be required to solve the puzzles.




How long does the game take to complete?


Depending on your experience level, expect the game to take a minimum of two to three hours and most likely longer, depending on the speed of play. Because you have seven days to complete the game, you can choose to complete the games in segments, spread out over a few days. This game was designed to take longer than most games.




Do I have to play the entire game at once?


No, it is possible to split it up and play over several days if you like, as long as the game is finished within seven days of purchase




Does the printing have to be done in colour?


No, it is perfectly okay ot print the document in black and white. We do recommend colour; however, it will have no impact on puzzles if you print in black and white.




I've never done one of these before, what should I expect?


You should expect to have fun! Don't worry if it is your first time, you will get the hang of it pretty quick. You will basically be solving a series of puzzles, one after the other, until you get to the end. There is a sample puzzle included for beginners to try out on this page.
