90 - Frequently Argued Questions about Escape Rooms

Dan Egnor has organized a crowdsourced document of Frequently Argued Questions about Escape Rooms, which you can find on theCodex.ca.

However, the Divas don’t cover these questions, considering the doc does a good job of that. Instead, they chat about the topics listed at the bottom of the document:

  • Refunds for tech issues

  • Should photos of the room be shown or not?

  • “first timer reviews” vs. enthusiast reviews — are reviews useful at all?

  • Franchises

  • Traditional locks vs. “no lock” rooms
