Welcome to the second installment of Confessions of a Game Master! If you haven’t seen our first installment, click here to watch what being a Game Master means in seven words and the most important skill for a Game Master to have. Since October is the scariest month of the year, this video has our Game Masters confess their favorite “scary” moments they have seen in the games.
Many people react differently when faced with fear, and because we lock many people into a room multiple times a day, we get to experience a cornucopia of reactions. I often look forward to the reactions of unsuspecting players in The Hex Room, but it’s the reactions I don’t expect that are the funniest and most memorable.
We also get to see people reacting to things that, frankly, aren’t scary. What seems commonplace outside of an escape room can suddenly become a bit frightening to those who don’t know what they are getting into. Though it is most likely to happen in a horror-themed room such as The Hex Room, it’s not the only place we’ve seen people scared. Even in The Fun House, where nothing is designed to be scary, some guests can psych themselves out and convince themselves that they are going to be scared.
Finally, we finish off the video by asking our Game Masters what horror movie they would want to survive, if they had to choose.
If you want to see if you have what it takes to survive a horror film, try The Hex Room where you are cast as one of six horror movie characters in your very own horror film. It’s a perfect choice for Halloween fun!
