Disclosure: I received a sample of Operation Escape to facilitate this post all opinions are my own.
Escape rooms have been popping up everywhere in Canada & US and my teenage daughter has expressed interest in them. These rooms are quite challenging and those who try, them talk about the experience for days. Ever since the experiences first started appearing, our daughter has been intrigued not only by the entire concept, but also by the stories she has heard form friends.
Operation Escape from YULU Toys is a new interactive game that taps into the escape room trend by combining skill, strategy and teamwork to search, solve and escape the room before time runs out!
How to Play Operation Escape
The objective of the game is to work together and complete three tasks in order to set the captured player free of the master belt before time runs out.
First, choose a player to be captured. Place and lock the belt on the player and set the timer on the belt using the rotating dials. The game includes a series of three challenges, a Skill Challenge, Strategy Challenge and Luck Challenge.
The Skill Challenge requires players to wiggle a key out from the bottom of a cage using sticks.
The Strategy Challenge uses cards divided into three levels of difficulty. Enter the card number into the device, solve the problem and then enter the answer into the same device. If the answer is correct, 1/3rd of the key will come out.
Players must solve three problems in a row in order to retrieve the key. If the answer is incorrect, the key will pop back into the device.
In order to solve the final challenge, the Luck Challenge, players must insert the correct key into a device and spin it. They have three chances to find the key in the device. If players are unable to find the key, they must reset the spinner and start over.
