Escape Date: 14th December 2013

Dscry: Greetings! I see red lasers. This is like the museum at night due to the tight security. I wonder if there are any expensive artifacts or paintings around. On second thought, this is definitely not a museum. So, where are we?

dPace: We’re in another escape game. Here we are, after caroling for Christmas, we have gathered in Escape Room at e@Curve for another attempt at escape game. Red lasers, huh?

Dscry: Yup. This room has red lasers! Trying our luck in another escape game, we decided to try out one of the rooms in Escape Room which is The Mysterious Room. This time, we went as a team of 6 again but with a different group of people. One thing for sure, this room needs lots of teamwork.

dPace: As we learnt from our previous game, “Violence takes us nowhere”, here we have to add to that lesson, “Violence and recklessness takes us nowhere”. Trying to unlock something without hints or clues will not open it. Eh? Dscry, where are you?

Dscry: I’m across the room! You have to pass through these red lasers to get to this side. But, you can’t touch the red lasers. Be careful! So, how to pass the red lasers? That is what you all have to find out.

dPace: Bah, easy! Ouch! Oops, nearly touch it! Be careful, teammates. Being detected by the lasers will cause a time reduction. We don’t want to do that. We’ve only 45 minutes. Any deduction in time would make our lives harder in this really, really mysterious room.

Dscry: Okay, we just have to avoid red lasers and escape, right? We’re even given 2 times to call for help. This sounds simple to me. Let’s do this!

dPace: Let’s go! Hmm… This seems familiar. How come we didn’t notice this thing here? Ah, lesson learnt, “Always bring items and equipment or unsolved clues to wherever you go”.

Dscry: That’s a very important lesson. I have to say, this is one of the most regrettable experience I have up till now due to the poor interactions between the team members. As I’ve mentioned earlier, teamwork is very important. It’s difficult to play with someone whom you are not familiar with. Trust me on this.

dPace: Fully agreed. This room taught us many lessons. It was a good room, but we had a humbling experience. Nevertheless, this just evoked our passion to solve more puzzles! On to the next room!
