Communicate effectively and efficiently inside the room. As we’ve mentioned countless times before, effective communication is key when playing an escape game. This is especially true when playing with strangers, as strangers are a bit more likely to communicate more slowly and timidly. Don’t forget, the clock is ticking, and there really is no time for slow or timid communication. It’s time to take initiative and be assertive! Although you didn’t know each other coming into the game, you’re all on the same team now, so put your big boy or girl pants on and put those effective communication skills into play!
Stop worrying and just have fun! The people that you’re playing with are most likely just as nervous as you are. They are also probably just as nice, patient, understanding, and excited as you as well. If you think about it, there really isn’t too much to worry about when playing a game with strangers! Try your best to focus on the game, rather than the fact that you’re playing it with people you don’t know. You’ll find that you actually do get to know them pretty well inside the room, anyway. By focusing on the game, the puzzles, and the tasks at hand, you’ll find that everything else - communication, cooperation, problem-solving, and teamwork - will just fall into place on its own.
