Bakers are you ready? Enjoy a baking adventure and escape room in one! Think you have what it takes to be a Star Baker? This delicious escape room includes 13 challenges to solve in an immersive, fun-filled atmosphere. Parts of the recipes and clues to the answers are on the wall, kitchen counter, or in envelopes players open as the game goes on. During the game, players make brownies and brownie frosting! Clue difficulty is paced so that the dessert will be ready to eat at the end of the game. There are TWO clue paths players can split up to work on, which means every player is hands on baking and solving! Ages 8 and up is recommended, plus there are hints and detailed solutions included to help younger players (and to make the game stress-free)! 6 players is ideal, if you have more players, you can print it out again and have the groups compete for even more fun! Game play is about 60 minutes. Are you up for a decadent challenge?
What's the story?
As a contestant in the Great Bake-Off Show, you’ve been outbaking other contestants for several episodes. No soggy bottom on yesterday’s cherry pie, and your almond biscuits made a judge exclaim in delight, “Scrumptious!” But today, when you arrive at your station, everything is a disaster! Your equipment and ingredients are topsy-turvy. Your Perfectly Frosted Brownies recipe... has splashes of vanilla blotting out most of the words! Producers and contestants alike are so focused on filming as the introduction begins that they don’t see your predicament. Can you possibly escape being eliminated? There are some clues on the counter that might help you save your bake. You look up to see the presenter tell the contestants, “Bakers, you have one hour. On your mark, get set, BAKE!”

Kids ages 11-15 had a blast!

I purchased this for my Middle School homeschool group (ages 11-15). I had 8 kids and I acted as lockmaster. It was perfect. We actually did it at a park with an electric outlet using a toaster oven to bake the brownies. The number of kids was perfect for working on the 2 lines of clues plus following the baking directions. It was a favorite activity and the setup could not have been easier. The clues were perfect for this age range. I would LOVE more escape rooms that have a hands-on component or recipe to make as part of it. So much better than a "real" escape room for this age, since most of those the clues are too difficult and they are very expensive. I got rave reviews for this event!

My daughter and we friends 11 & 12 years old played this game. They really enjoyed it and were super happy to have a brownie at the end. It was a bit harder than I expected so I would recommend an adult be there to help guide younger kids.
