Can You Escape?


The 501 Blog, Baltimore, MD Apartments   Enjoy your attempt at escaping with a few friends at a local escape room venue or by turning your apartment into an escape room!


Escape Rooms are growing in popularity all over the country, and that includes Baltimore, Maryland. Visiting one of these escape rooms could make for a fun weekend adventure this month; however, if you’d rather stay in your apartment for an evening in instead of heading out on the town, we suggest turning your apartment into an escape room. The 501 Blog is sharing two exciting escape room-themed board games that you can play for a lot of fun with a few friends.


Escape Room: The Game

Consisting of four adventures, Escape Room: The Game turns your apartment into a real-life escape room.


“Take the viral social experience of Escape Rooms to the comfort of your own home and for a fraction of the cost that you would pay! Included in this game are 4 unique 60-minute escape room puzzles that will test your cranial skills. Use images, gears, words, keys, shapes, maps and more to solve the three stages within each escape room.”



This is a tense escape themed game for 1-6 players, ages 10 and up. Enjoy playing three different scenarios: enter a secret laboratory to obtain a mysterious serum, thwart the plans of a despicable professor, and overcome traps on a dangerous island.


Unlock! is a series of cooperative card-based escape adventures for up to six players. Each Unlock! game consists of sixty cards depicting objects, maps, and puzzles that can be activated, solved, or combined in an effort to access other cards and areas. The free companion app tracks the time allotted to win the game, while also offering hints and unlocking new, and necessary, elements. When the players believe they have figured out the code to escape each adventure, they will input the number into the app and escape the danger, or lose even more time in finding the real sequence.”


We hope you can escape the July heat while you’re out and about in Baltimore this month! Let us know about your favorite escape room venue or if you try the in-apartment game. Thanks for reading today’s post.
