    I did a red herring puzzle once. It was a rubix cube. I happen to know how to solve them. So I solved it and there was a cool grand in the room. I was just there for my buddies birthday. 😂 people were not pleased with me. I mean if you could solve it you can win like I did.

    Its a miracle that I am alive today. I encounter HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV1/2) for good four (4) years, six (6) months and twelve (12) day with my calculations, before I meet the great Dr. Abumere. I am Tina Richard from Fresno California, united state of America and I was affected with herpes virus.Herpes is a viral infection cause by the Herpes simplex virus, marked by painful, watery blister in the skin or mucous membrane or on the genitals. This was what I suffered for good four years. I have visited CVS Pharmacy in Fresno for treatment but no improvement. I meet Dr.Abumere online while I was searching for herpes cure I read a testimony about his work. I give a try that now becomes a testimony in my life. I contacted Dr.Abumere on Email: or WhatsApp: +2349021975055

    The trick is you (and you alone) eat 12 to 20 white castle sliders the day before. The next day (escape room day) your lethal farts will motivate everyone to work harder while you sit there and fart. Dont try to help, just fart. And laugh.

    I worked in an escape room for almost 2 years and did more than 100 rooms and I can say these tricks and tips are very VERY accurate. Communication is the most important thing in an escape room and the most commun reason people fail when they can't do it right. That and when they don't know how to use a padlock.

    Wait, now that I think about it... Escape rooms are rooms you're supposed to escape right? Well, maybe they're teaching you how to escape if you ever get in a situation. When you're stuck in a room. I know this isn't the real thing but maybe...

    Ok, I may just geek out here, but for the thingy at 8:37 when you said that the capitalized letters were the ones that you had trouble on, that was super weird to me because that code was actually the first one that I saw, before even the bold letters. I saw the bold letters second, and then the first phrase on the left new line third. I have dyslexia, so when words come into my brain they are already jumbled and missing letters, so this one took me about 15 seconds to figure out. I dunno, this just goes to show that everyone's brain is different and that if you have people who think differently than one another is gonna help. Like I have ADHD and dyslexia, so I see certain things that others don't, and others see certain things that I don't. EDIT: Oh, yeah, and I'm completely colorblind. Have someone who has normal color vision as well, because believe me, you're fucked otherwise.

    I went to a mini escape room once and it was dark in there and we had a limited number of flashlights and there was not enough for each person. I some how ( with my peanut size of a brain ) found a way to light up the whole room by a bit using only ONE flashlight. I shone the flashlight upwards onto the ceiling and it lit the room up better till we barely had to use three flashlight. We only need to use one other flashlight ( other than the one I held facing he ceiling ) I kinda impressed some people lol.
