Hometrap - the escape game playable at home that brings parents and kids together
Do you know what an escape room is? It is a type of game in which groups are closed into a room and need to find and decipher a series of riddles to escape from the room in less than 60 minutes. Escape rooms have been a huge success world wide. In France, for example, in December 2013 there was only one escape room while in September 2017 there are 400 different companies operating with more than 1,000 escape rooms. We strive to bring the same experience into your home. Girls and boys equally love this experience.
In our game, they will
- Search for clues in different rooms of the house
- Solving riddles using their brain and their hands
- have the opportunity to dress up as pirates
- have a ton of fun
Our first game takes place in a pirate universe, however our ambition is to develop several scenarios in different universes. Please leave us a comment which theme you would like to play next!
Who are we?
We are three young entrepreneurs from ESCP Europe, a french business school, who all love board games. One of us worked for three years in the first escape game based in France (HintHunt). We spent the last four months on developing and improving our game and we are proud of our work.
Having conducted already 5 tests with families and having animated a birthday party, we want to bring the joy to more people.
And you, are you ready to have fun and join the pirate adventure?
In our game parents or older siblings play the role of the game master. They prepare the game by hiding the objects in the house. This only takes between 5 and 10 minutes.
At the beginning of the game, the kids receive a message in a bottle from a famous pirate and then they have to look for the hidden objects and solve the riddles to find the treasure.
What will you find in our kit?
Our kit is rich of objects.
Here you can find the list:
- UV lampe
- Treasure box
- Treasure map
- False coins
- Instructions about how to hide (Top secret !)
- Lock with key
- Scenario that guides through the story
- Pirate eye patch
