Welcome, Escapists!

It's June and the start of another great month.

This month, all the big stories seem to centre around creativity! From an exciting new grant for puzzle game creators, to huge community support for a new LEGO game, to the results of Enigmarch. Let's not forget that parents in Australia also have the exclusive Ukiyo Academy opening it's doors this month with escape room design courses... (we wish we could sign up but we're a little too old) 😭

At least us old folk have plenty of fun new escape rooms popping up across the world to look forward to playing. Scroll down to the bottom to read those, and as always if we've missed one near you - let us know!

Last but not least, next Monday the Salon de l'Escape Game - the world's first French escape room fair will be held in Paris, ending with the Escape Game Awards ceremony. France is home to over 2,500 escape rooms, it's safe to say... On est excité! If you're looking for something in North America, don't forget RECON tickets are still available too.

That's all for this month, until the next 👋
