We acknowledge that the current situation we are experiencing is difficult. It poses a great number of challenges of extreme difficulty. We have attempted to get in touch with the game master and even the designer themself, but they remain illusive. All we can say is that apparently we are being made to play it. Luckily, we have some great teams at work to try and solve this challenge. Until the solution is found, please adhere to the rules that have been put in place. While escape rooms are not open at this time, a metamorphosis is taking place as we adapt to this strange new world we find ourselves in. From game masters hosting virtual games to roleplaying games hosted via social platforms, escape rooms are undergoing a rapid evolution.
What other facilities are doing
Due to the deadliness of this current game that we have found ourselves in, escape room facilities have been forced to close their doors to the public until further notice. However, several sites have taken it upon themselves to utilize a loophole. If no guests are actually within the facility, quarantine is still maintained. Thus virtual escape rooms became possible. After connecting via a platform such as Zoom, participants guide a game master throughout an escape room as if they were playing it. Note that the escape room itself is typically altered to make things simpler; a single person can only focus on so much at once. The thrill of solving the room in time remains, making the virtual hosting an entertaining companion to a live experience. We encourage you to look for any if you are interested!
What is Bond’s doing?
Our team at Bond’s Escape Room regrets not being open at our physical locations. While we await the all clear from the Virginia government, we would like to stress that we are not fully closed. Rather, we are in the process of adapting to the new environment we find ourselves thrust into. This has been taking on several forms, such as the possible creation of alternate reality games in the future. Currently, our big project we are working on is Global Domination. This roleplaying game places players into various roles as they work together to develop their country. The objective of the game is for your country to have the highest quality of life. How your team goes about achieving this can take many different directions. Will you choose the pacifist route and focus on the economy of your own nation? Will you devastate your enemies with nuclear annihilation? Can you find a perfect balance between the two extremes? Global
Domination will have you facing difficult questions during a simulated 6 year period where only one country will reign supreme. Be on the lookout for the game to go live soon!
What comes next?
We hope to be open to the public as soon as possible. In the meantime, we strongly encourage you to follow the rules and guidelines put in place so that the top players can solve this faster. In the meantime, we hope that you enjoy the new content Bond’s Escape Rooms will soon be delivering. Remember that we are not closed, we are simply in the process of adapting.
