The ERG escaped from Jay Jayson's "vacation home" in the woods in Colorado. We apparently are serial-killer-magnets.

Did we escape? Wouldn't you like to know!

No One Said Anything about Minding Our 'Manors'... - Room: The Manor - February 18, 2019 - The Escape Room Guys

On our trip to Colorado Springs, we found ourselves in the manor of a sadistic doctor who was looking for new subjects to experiment on.

Were we his next victims, or did we escape and live to tell the tale?

Abracapocus! Hocus Cadabra! - Room: KAZAM! - February 17, 2019 - The Escape Room Guys

While in Denver, we became apprentices to a master magician whose last disappearing act became just a bit too convincing. We needed to search his attic for clues to his disappearance, and - if we solved the mystery of his final trick - we'd be accepted as full-fledged magicians.

Dispatch by Breakout Games: On the Run, Box 4 - Game Review - May 27, 2019 - The Escape Room Guys

We continue on our quest to help our childhood friend, James, as he tries to clear his name in his wife's murder. Box 4 from the On the Run series takes place in Australia and was a lot of fun to play.

This series is cool in the fact that that it requires that you go back through other boxes looking for clues and items to help you later on in the journey.

Did we end up solving James' riddles?
