Coming up with unique escape room themes and puzzles can be difficult. A balance needs to be made so that the game is challenging but also fun, because an escape room that’s too boring or too easy just isn’t worth anyone’s time.

It’s tempting to reuse puzzles and go blank when it’s time to build out a theme for your room. No gamemaster is immune to this frustration, myself included. So, I know how valuable it can be to have a list of escape room ideas that can be used as a starting-off point.

Below are some thoughts to get your creative juices flowing. But as always, you’re more than welcome to contact me for specific help.
