The competition consisted of three stages: online eliminations, regional eliminations and the final. However, compared to previous editions, they had modified formats.
The first stage had the players meet Henryk - a corpo employee who is getting married and, as part of his bachelor party, has to overcome a series of tasks prepared by his colleagues. Fastest teams to complete his storyline would qualify for the regional stage. A number of teams from outside of Poland took part in the online eliminations, including some from Japan - one of them not only made it to the next stage, but also took part in it, flying to Poland for this purpose.
The regional eliminations were held in Poznań at the Malta shopping mall, where each team had one scenario to go through, specifically prepared for the occasion. The game was based on the plot of the film "X-Men: Dark Phoenix," which sponsored the event. After this stage, 14 teams were qualified to play on and have a chance to win the title of Polish Champions.
The contractor who crafted the elimination room was Mysterious Room from Łódź, while the ER Champ team was responsible for the scenario. After the completion of this stage, fans of the championship were also able to play in the room.
The semi-finals and finals of the competition took place in Warsaw. The semi-final games were located at the headquarters of the Black Cat company. The teams were tasked with achieving best completion time in two rooms that were built specifically for the competition. The first game was centered around a hospital bed, while the second took place in a treasure vault. The two scenarios were linked by a storyline, casting players as characters of the A-Team.
The three teams with best times in the semi-final rooms played in the as-yet unopened Old Wardrobe room, built by the Warsaw-based company Świat Zagadek.
