You can use Escape Mail almost anywhere as an exciting, unexpected and engaging activity for families, friends or couples.

Escape Mail is a family friendly adventure (all content is PG). The difficulty of Escape Mail is suitable for anyone 10 years or older, but playing with an adult is recommended for anyone under the age of 14.

We've included a flow card. Unless you have solved many escape room games before, or you're a sucker for punishment, we recommend starting with the Flow difficulty.

There is access to tiered hints online. Regardless of the difficulty level you choose, you can always access multiple hints (and the solution) with every puzzle along the way.

Everything you need to solve the puzzle is included in your envelope, with the exception of a pencil and an internet-connected device. Some episodes will also require scissors and tape.

Escape Mail games are different. There's no doubt about it. Just ask Nicholas L who said, "I’m not someone who normally would have chosen an escape room style game; but it has been so much fun trying something new with my wife." What do people love about Escape Mail?

A Running Storyline: You can lose yourself in the mystery over 12 months as each episode connects to the one before it, including plots twists, clever connections, and Easter eggs!.

Variety of Puzzles: When you play Escape Mail you realize no two episodes are alike. Every theme is different and every puzzle we approach from a new angle to keep it fresh for you.

Quality Elements: Our games are immersive, tactile & durable. We even include multimedia such as websites, apps and Augmented Reality.

Challenging & Satisfying: By the end of an Escape Mail episode, you have a real sense of achievement and accomplishment.
