Love Escape Rooms? These Five Games Bring Them Right To Your Tabletop

Getting a group of my friends together, locking ourselves in a room, and solving a myriad of themed puzzles in order to escape (followed by our traditional donut run) is one my favorite ways to spend an afternoon or evening. Unfortunately, I can’t always get a full team together, or sometimes money is a little too tight to justify spending $20-$40 per person for an hour of puzzle-solving. Luckily, there are a ton of new board and card games that seek to bring the fun and mystery of escape rooms into your own home. These often work well with smaller groups, and they’re pretty much guaranteed not to break the bank.
