Know when to ask others for help. It’s time to face the facts: you can’t be the best at everything. Sometimes one of the best skills you can have is being able to know when to ask others for help. This means being aware of your own skills and limits, and recognizing the skills of your teammates. You’re playing the game with a team, so let the other members of the team shine too. Let them use their greatest strengths to help the team as well. There is nothing wrong with asking your teammates for assistance with a task. Keep in mind that everyone has an important role to play in an escape game!
Know when to call it quits -- on a piece of information, not the game, of course! While you might think that everything in the room is related to your escape, this is not necessarily true. There are some parts of the room that may not play any role in your escape at all. Therefore, it is important to stay focused and not get lost in all of the information, as focusing on the wrong information is a huge waste of your valuable time. If you’ve been stuck on one piece of information for a bit too long, consider moving on to something else. You may find something later on that makes everything tie together a little bit more.
Trust your instincts. Do you ever have that sixth sense kind of feeling? That feeling that leads you in a certain direction, but you can’t really explain why? Well, now might be a good time to trust that feeling. Listen to your gut. If you have a hunch, it is likely that following it will lead you to find the next clue in the room or the next step of the puzzle. Trust your instincts and don’t overthink things!
