ER Champ (previously Poland Escape), has been held since 2017. That is when the first competition took place, attracting 1767 participants. The competition consisted of 3 stages. Internet eliminations, regional stage, and the grand finale in Wrocław. Apart from the first edition, the initial eliminations have always been a cooperative point-and-click game that all participants solve at the same time. The fastest top 60 teams advance to the next stage. The regional stage is a game in real escape rooms, built especially for this occasion. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, this intermediate stage has been canceled both this and the previous year.
The grand finale that ends the competition is always a celebration for escape room enthusiasts.
From the very beginning, we organize championships to promote the idea of escape rooms among escape room and puzzle game enthusiasts, as well people who have not had contact with this type of entertainment so far. We want to interest as many people as possible with the passion of escape rooms. Our games - although they are not the simplest - can attract even people who are the most resistant to puzzle games.
