The Five Love Languages in Escape Rooms

The month of love is here! February is a popular time to express care and affection to your friends, sweetie, and other important folks in your life. Gary Chapman’s “The Five Love Languages” detail five different ways to communicate and convey these feelings (find out your Love Language here). Escape rooms offer ample opportunity to show how you feel to your loved ones through each of the five love languages. Quality Time Escape rooms are the ultimate quality time activity! They provide a chance for you to spend time together away from the chaos of the real world uninhibited from […]

Booking Upgrade to Semi-Private

As many of you know, at NM Escape Room we currently operate with sessions that are private bookings; this means that a booked session comprised of at least 4 participants secures the game private for that group, and no one else can access the unbooked spots in that session. This has been very well received as the majority of customer groups prefer to play the escape game only with people they know as opposed to playing the game with strangers. The draw back to private bookings with a participant minimum is that it doesn’t allow for groups of less than […]

Support Local

Support local! We hear it all the time, but sometimes it’s tough to do, and we don’t always know whether the establishments we frequent are locally owned businesses or not.  Did you know that we have 3 locally owned and operated escape game companies in Albuquerque? NM Escape Room has been around since early 2015, along with Esquape It since late 2015 and Abq Xcape Room since late 2016. All of these games are very different, but very well done. We appreciate the creativity and efforts of our local owners, and are glad to share the industry and this town […]

Happy New Year!

We’ve got lots in store for 2018! We are excited to announce the opening in early April of our newest escape game, Bombshell! It will be joining it’s counterpart, Nefertari’s Tomb, located at our facility on 4401 Mcleod Rd NE. This game will start out with an important goal in mind as the mob bosses from crime syndicates all over the city convene to discuss the pressing matter of a shared enemy, Don Bosargio. He’s a quirky eccentric who doesn’t respect the old ways, and is reeking havoc all over the city, disrespecting other crime families, and trespassing on their territories. […]

Linear Vs. Multi-path

Recently I’ve had some conversations with customers regarding their favorite game design styles. Specifically, we were comparing a more linear game play style where one clue leads to the next and so on, vs. a multi path game where the linearity is broken up by multiple steps that ultimately lead to the grand finale. Both styles in my opinion can be fun, but watching customers play over these past few years has made me favor a multi path design over a linear one.    The pros of a linear game are: It’s sometimes easier to make connections and recognize the […]
