REDivas 10 - Escape Rooms - 1st & 2nd Gen

The divas get together and discuss a few questions they were asked on social media:

  • Thoughts on 1st and 2nd generation of Escape Rooms
  • The future of escape rooms

There were more topics, of course, but the first question was so interesting to talk about! Thanks to all of you who sent something in!

Thanks also goes to Eric Boudreau and Sen Lim for their help and suggestion for the escape room parody song "Solve It, Maybe".

By all means, if you have any comments or questions for us to talk about, leave them here or on our secret slack chat. :D

REDivas 07 - Interview with Escapers 4G

We interview Toronto bloggers Escapers 4G!

In this episode we talk about the the composition of an Enthusiast Escape Team, creating spreadsheets of team member skills, and awkward moments. 

The parody was a suggestion from E4G, and is the first duet on this podcast sung with Si Mui.

SPOILER ALERT: We talk about a room which is no longer in operation, in particular Lock Quest. If you do not wish to hear about this room which no longer exists, you can skip this podcast.

REDivas 06 - We Review The Divas

Ok, folks! The divas talk about how they've been really stupid in the room.

And Ruby does a rant. It was glorious. There was a bit of racism too. Not from Ruby though.

And Errol is still doing parodies. He doesn't know how long he can keep that up.

Mentioned in this podcast:

Room Escape Review Reviewer - Doesn't get more meta! It's awesome! They review Escape Room Reviews!

REDivas 05 - On Escape Room Reviewing

Recorded May 23, 2015, the Divas talk about their experiences and opinions about reviewing escape rooms. They are outside enjoying the fresh air and the sounds of birds, planes, and house construction.

Manda also does a rant because Errol feels he's ranting a bit too much as of late.

REDivas 04 - Interview with Scott Nicholson

The Divas play Escape Rooms with Scott Nicholson and meet up with him where he teaches at the Brantford Games Network Lab, Wilfrid Laurier University in Brantford, Ontario, Canada.

They discuss BreakoutEdu, escape room game design, the future of escape rooms, and really old video game nostalgia. 

Scott is a huge fan of Disney and blacklights, and thus this week's parody.
