  1. Escape Rooms

    Sounds like we've (I've?!) got try and arrange something!
  2. Escape Rooms

    Yesterday, my employer took the 10 of use that work at my office for a team day out, a kind of reward for the work we’ve done. We went to Nottingham to play in some ‘Escape Rooms’ run by www.escapolic.com – basically, you get locked in a room(s) and have to use the clues left behind to get out. The room I and 3 colleagues were put into was called HeiStakes and we were told that we were the backup crew for a bank heist that had gone wrong. The primary team had managed to get part way into the vault but they’d been spooked and left, it was our job to complete the heist. We started in a garage with a van, inside this we found some gadgets that allowed us to create a connection to open a door (only 2.5 feet tall so hands and knees!) getting us into a bank vault. Once inside this we had a wall of safety deposit boxes to open and lead to other clues which allowed to open more in the vault, eventually cracking the main safe and then getting ready to leave … except Mr X, the heist planner, has a devious plan to kill us all! Opening the last door starts a timer. Dramatic music starts playing, lights are flashing. A countdown clock appears. Going back through the tunnel to the van the side door is now open and inside there is a huge chemical bomb (think Die Hard 3) that we had to diffuse – we had to work the clues out for this from information on a computer screen and clocks placed around the vault. As the countdown decreased the music got more tense; the pressure increased as my colleagues relayed what they thought the settings should be to defuse the bomb. I confirmed the code. Flicked the final switch. The bombs disappeared back into their chambers, game over with 2 minutes to spare. Whilst I enjoyed playing this room with work colleagues, I'd love to have a crack at some of these with the epic family! I’ve never felt more like I was in a movie than I did playing in this room and I’d recommend it to anyone, especially geeks/nerds and logical thinkers.

  4. epic23 - Menu & Catering Feedback

    When my son played rugby for Chesterfield, I lost count of how many times I had the "A quid? For a cup of tea in a polystyrene cup?" discussion - but on a Sunday morning after driving to ar5e end of the world and usually standing in the rain I was grateful for a drink. At football, it's £2.40 a cuppa so I guess it's the going rate. I get around the issue by asking for hot water/using the kettle and bringing my own tea bags!

  6. epic23 - Menu & Catering Feedback

    The cheese has to be melted otherwise it's on the same level of wrong as playing a FPS with a joypad.
  7. Status of LAN Menu

    Rubbing my crystal ball(s) I see chips ... there will be chips.

  10. Happy Birthday Winbar!

    Happy Birthday! Drinks on Winbar!
  11. Hello greetings from Malaysian

    I would doubt any of the meat options will be Halal but they do provide vegetarian options - and at Breakfast you can choose the items you'd like. As for soft drinks, I'd recommend buying them from the Epic shop at the event as they're cheaper than from the bar.
  12. Just gunna put this here......

    Good show Sir! I shall have to buy you a Port at LAN!
  13. How do i change my god awful nickname?

  14. christmas steam sales.

    PUBG still not been in the sale, at least, I don't think it has.
  15. First time EpicLAN where to sit?

    I hope you all enjoy it. They (we?) are a friendly bunch of people and whilst the playing PC games is the primary focus of the event, there are plenty of other things to get involved with such as board games area, consoles, the pub quiz on Friday night or just mooching around the galley and having a drink and a chat.
