Being TRAPPED has never been so much fun
New award-winning escape room game, TRAPPED, makes the perfect Christmas Gift
The countdown to Christmas is officially on and it's time to start thinking about Christmas gift lists. With lockdown rekindling our passion for playing games, the just launched world-first TRAPPED: Escape Room Game Packs, makes staying home a lot more fun, by transforming any room into an escape room experience. The family-friendly games are designed to get everyone involved, working together to solve the mystery, and having loads of fun.
Designed by escape-room experts, the three TRAPPED game packs (RRP $20) each contain the components needed to turn any room into a live-action puzzle. Players simply put the pack contents such as wall posters, cards to display, hangers for door handles, ID cards and secret envelopes, on walls and surfaces in a room of choice, and then work together – or compete to beat the clock, crack the clues, solve the puzzles, and escape the room.
Each game lasts between one and two hours and can be played by two to six people, and are suitable for eight years old and upwards. Choose from TRAPPED The Carnival and find out who will be crowned carnival king or queen, TRAPPED The Art Heist where it's your mission to identify the painting then steal it, and TRAPPED The Bank Job where you have to open the bank vault and steal the contents. Each game includes its own content, back-story and level of difficulty. As the easiest of the levels, Carnival is the ideal game to play with younger children, before progressing to the 'medium' Art Heist or 'hard' Bank Job for teens through to adults.
"Escape rooms are hugely popular, but have been restricted due to COVID-19, so we're bringing the fun to everyone to enjoy within the comfort of their own homes. People are looking for new home-based entertainment that promotes family interaction, which TRAPPED does in abundance," said Melissa Hamilton, Product & Marketing Manager, U.Games Australia.
"It makes for a great night in with friends, and you can even take it to the next level by dressing in character and competing in teams. It's also brilliant for kids and teens birthday parties when you want to make your own fun. TRAPPED is unlike traditional escape room tabletop games because it gets you up and moving around the room, which adds to the excitement of the game and makes it a truly immersive experience."
TRAPPED has recently been announced as the Winner in the Play Creators Awards 2020: Game Designer of the Year (Kids Games) and received a Bronze Award for the Dadsnet Toy Awards 2020 in the United Kingdom.
TRAPPED is available from Big W, Toyworld and all good toy and games retailers. RRP $20 each. For more information, visit www.ugames.com.au
