STEP 1: CONTEXT
You are locked in a room for whatever reason it might be. You need to use your detective's mind and your powers of deduction to study the environment, gather clues, information and tools.
STEP 2: PLAN
Don't panic over the puzzles or riddles. Strategize with your teammates. More heads are definitely better than one.
STEP 3: SOLVE
Once you solve a puzzle, it can give you either a combination to a lock or a location to a key.
STEP 4: ESCAPE
Find the lock that opens from the discovered combination or key. Unlock it and be one step closer to escaping the room.
* REPEAT STEPS 2-4 IF NECESSARY UNTIL YOU ESCAPE THE ROOM.
