One of London's many escape games on offer, following the same sort of vibe: there's a theme, you form a team and use your mind to get out of a locked room. At this east London game a group (minimum two, max five) of you are invited into the mind of a 'white collar criminal' to search his thoughts for a secret code. It sounds a little 'Black Mirror' esque, but hopefully you'll do better than John Ham and won't get trapped. Within 60 minutes participants will be faced with puzzles, challenges and mysteries, which all need to be solved in order to escape in time.
