The Perspective of the Player’s Experience

Created by an experience designer and a predictive data expert in 2014, publishes well-researched, rational, and reasonably humorous escape room reviews, design and players tips. REA has become a fixture in the US scene and has helped countless escape rooms and players get the best experiences they can.

Their mission is to share their love of letting strangers lock them inside giant puzzles, and to push the makers of those giant puzzles to create the best experiences they can.
