    What a brilliant survey on escape rooms. Game or puzzle design is the key factor in making a game popular and interesting. It is sad to see around 155 mentions, of games failing those criteria. It is not surprising though that experienced players prefer smaller teams. A larger team leads to chaos, and most of the participants get bored easily, dampening the team spirit.

    Excellent survey. Escape rooms are great stress-busters, team builders and family bonders. No wonder they have rapidly gained popularity. I agree with Alex Seeder in that larger teams are not ideal. About 6 people make up a good team size for best interactivity and puzzle solving. I would have, however, thought that logical deduction would be more common!
