If you need more ideas: scary doll, pig’s / goat’s head, zombie, demon, mutant, vampire, ghost.
Another genre is adventure escape rooms. As it is also quite a big genre, there are countless ideas of integrated hint systems. For example:
• In the Maya Civilization room
, we have a statue/disk that changes its eye color when the game master talks through it.
• Another amazing ER gadget is a robot
, with camera and built-in microphone. It changes its eye color depending on its mood, so don’t make it angry!
If you need more escape room props ideas, how about: a phoenix, hat, owl, goblet, gnome, elf, fairy, witch, parrot, cat or mummy.
Don’t forget about another option, which we already mentioned: video materials
We have integrated this kind of hint system into our Witch room and Lilith room. Upon entering the room, players will watch a welcoming video on a monitor with decorative elements which fits with the room deco. In this video, the actor explains what the ER is and what the group’s mission is. There are also some pre-recorded hints, done by actors and using words that perfectly fit the theme of ER.
