It’s been a long-time desire of mine to spend more time creating puzzles, and it’s never been easier. There are almost too many tools to use to create, and it’s about time I start taking advantage of them.

Over the last few years, quite a few film studios have attempted to capture the magic of solving an escape room on the silver screen. With the lockdowns, I had a chance to revisit some of these films and rank my recommendations for escape room enthusiasts.
