You'll recognize some of the locales and scenarios at Amaze Escape Games, whose room-escape games add a touch of local flair to the popular group gaming phenomenon. Although the scenes are tailored to Columbus, the rules remain the same: solve clues and riddles to successfully deduce the games' solutions, or go home wondering what could've been.
- Gallery Swipe: What's supposed to be an evening of triumph for local artist Andrew Lee quickly turns sour when he new masterpiece turns up missing. All signs point to Lee's biggest rival, who's just left his office to meet with a dealer. With the hour allotted, can you infiltrate his workspace, find the painting, and avoid any possible booby traps that might be awaiting?
- Boat Break: After a big win, there's nothing you love more than returning to campus, cracking some cold ones, and partying the night away. A chance meeting on this particular night led to an unexpected morning: you've just woken up in the hull of a boat, groggy and disoriented and (most importantly) tied up. Can you identify your captors, figure out where you are, and escape before the boat leaves, or will you be stranded at sea for months on end?
- Fashion Week Nightmare: This year's Columbus Fashion Week is rumored to be the grandest edition yet, but if one jilted designer has her way, it won't take place at all. With just an hour before the show is scheduled to start, the event's executive board offers you this final plea: find the designer, stop her plot to ruin the day, and see that the festival gets off without a hitch.
