Solve a Manuscript Mystery at the Escape Room: Game of Tomes on November 18th

November 17, 2017 1:00 pm

You don't need hidden doors and built-in bank vaults to make an escape room great. All you need is a solid plot and a bit of creativity. The Escape Room: Game of Tomes has both. It's being held at a venue that doesn't typically play host to an escape room, the Smith Public Library. But on Saturday, November 18th, the library will transform into a labyrinth of clues and brain teasers.

Here's the situation: the sequel to a world-renowned fantasy series has finally been completed. There's only one problem—the manuscript never made it to the publisher. It was stolen in transit. Achieve hero status in the eyes of fantasy fanatics by recovering the manuscript and returning it to the publisher within an hour. The escape room is free, and you can sign up for a one-hour slot between 2 and 7:30 p.m. The library closes at 5 p.m., so some games will be played after hours. Register online.
