2018
Edition

The second edition of the Poland Escape competition was a multi-stage, although independent event, not connected with a conference or other industry event. As the championship was warmly welcomed by escape room fans last year, the formula has not changed much, although it has been greatly expanded.

About this edition

As in 2017, players had to go through as many as three stages: internet eliminations, local eliminations, and the final, which preceded the semi-finals (on one day). The first stage was a point-and-click game (not notpron as in the previous year), in which almost 900 teams participated.


The teams that went through the online eliminations then competed in local eliminations in rooms from five Polish cities: Krakow, Katowice, Bydgoszcz, Warsaw, and Wrocław. These were not commercially open yet, but already practically ready to receive guests, therefore none of the teams had the opportunity to play in them earlier.


The semi-final games combined with the finale took place in Wrocław. They started at the Surowiec club, where the teams had to go through one of two scenarios - first one was called "The booth", and the task was to release one of the team members. Interestingly, only two teams left booth in regular time. You can still measure the time of the masters from this room - it is located at the Exit19 headquarters in Wrocław. The second room the teams had to deal with was "Siren's Song" by the Wroclaw company Fox O'Clock. The combined results of both scenarios revealed three teams that traveled to Exit19 to compete in the final room: King Arthur's Dungeon.


Chronpesel.pl was the partner of this edition of the championship. There is a funny anecdote connected with it - in the elimination (internet) game there was a task that some players took too literally, so instead of - according to the point-and-click idea - only focus on the game screen, they started calling the hotline service. Apparently, the lady was very nice, but she did not give the code to anyone :)
