15 minutes to get into a locked drawer at Sydney Supernova, Ancient Egypt and a discount word puzzle

It’s good to be back.

I spent the last weekend at Sydney Supernova, a pop culture event with lots of cosplayers, comic books and celebrity guest panels. There was also an Escape Hunt Sydney booth which I checked out – they had wooden puzzles and t-shirt merchandise on sale. Within the booth they also had a 15 minute setup where anyone could try to solve the puzzles and unlock a drawer with three draws (the bottom two were locked, the first unlocked).

I was telling my friend about the booth and how we should go try it out, while they hadn’t tried out a room escape game before they knew what a room escape was.

When we got there, the staff showed us the instruction sheet, the drawer and gave us a timer to start when ready. There was a couple of minutes still on the clock after we solved all the puzzles and I managed to take a blurred photo of the booth name along with the brochure they handed out.

Next weekend on the other side of the country at Perth Supernova, Realmz Escape Game have decided to bring along an entire escape room for all attendees to try out.

It’s based at the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre from June 27th to 28th and has an Ancient Egypt theme. There’s not much other information about the theme but there’s some images appearing on their Facebook such as a glowing symbol on what looks like a trigger stone.

This also caught our attention recently- Orz Escape have a unique word puzzle that’s been printed on their flyers and brochures (there’s suppose to be a hidden discount inside the word puzzle) – can you solve it? There’s more photos of the puzzle on their Facebook page if you wanted to see it better.

      Kind of – there’s also an Australian Comic-Con but I imagine San Diego has to have the best one in the world. Some friends dressed up for the day 😀

        OH! Right, you’re in Australia! I know a geek musician there named Meri Amber. 😀 (Well, we only met online back in my geek musician days)
