The great escape!

Xperiology took to London to partake in a series of puzzles and clues to escape clueQuest.

Situated a short walk from King’s Cross Station, clueQuest is the UK’s leading real-life escape game, using only common sense, logic and the power of teamwork.

With little prior knowledge of what to expect and offered only a short cryptic briefing we approached the game with genuine excitement. With just an hour to escape, time was against us, ensuring we had to work as a closely knit team to succeed – parallel to our work ethic back at Xperiology HQ!

With no room for by-standers, everyone contributed evenly, helping each other piece together clues as we progressed through the game at a healthy rate.

However, as we looked likely to ‘make it out’ in time, we hit a stumbling block in the final room. Despite frantically throwing (literally) everything we had at it, we failed at the final hurdle. Nevertheless, with (a little) help from a gamesmaster we proudly escaped.

Karl Shilbach, Marketing Executive, said: “I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was alot of fun and actually surprisingly challenging. Above all it highlighted just how important teamwork really is. In fact I think we’ve all taken something away from the task, helping us become even more efficient Xperiologists in the process!”

A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon piecing together clues and solving puzzles as a team, we will be sure to return in the near future – determined to escape!

Although we think it’s safe to say, Sherlock Holmes needn’t worry about the Xperiology team presenting any competiton for him just yet.
