Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
All of our online games cost $75 and can be booked for up to 6 people & 3 devices (video connections).
DO I NEED TO BUY A ZOOM ACCOUNT? I THOUGHT THERE WAS A 40 MIN LIMIT?
No, you will be fine with the free version. The games are run by Locked Room staff with paid accounts, so there isn’t a 40 minute limit on the meeting time. It is recommended that players download zoom & setup a free account prior to the game.
Online Game Information
HOW LONG IS THE GAME?
The game takes approximately 60-75 minutes to complete on average. The game can vary in length depending on how well the team does. Our Locked Room gamemasters will play through the entire online game, even if the group “runs out of time”.
WHY IS THE GAME LIMITED TO 3 DEVICES?
Our online games are best experienced with a maximum of 3 video connections and a maximum of 6 players. With the nature of how the game is played, it is best experienced with 3 or less video connections. This is because if there are too many connections often players will talk over each other about what they want to do in the game & some players may not be as involved with the game.
If you require more devices please let us know by emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org & we will do our best to accommodate the request!
Please note: we can run simultaneous games (and everyone can be in the same chat before & after the game) if your group is larger than 6 players.
WHAT IF WE HAVE MORE THAN 6 PLAYERS?
Please e-mail us at: email@example.com. If you have a large group we can have multiple GMs run games simultaneously and setup a zoom meeting for everyone playing for before & after the games.
WHAT IF MY PLAYER NUMBERS CHANGE?
The online game has a maximum or 6 players & 3 separate video connections (devices). If your number of players or number of connections change from what you booked that’s fine as long as you’re still at or below the game maximums.
SHOULD WE USE MULTIPLE DEVICES IF PLAYING IN A SINGLE HOUSEHOLD?
This is up to your group, you can choose to run the game by sharing a single screen or on multiple devices.
Important note: If you choose to setup multiple devices for multiple players in the same household please note that they likely cannot be in the same room, as this will create a loud ringing feedback if both devices are playing the same audio. Headphones are also recommended in this setup for the same reason.
IS THE HOST STREAMING FROM INSIDE AN ESCAPE ROOM?
No, this is not a game where we are walking around & streaming one of our existing escape rooms. We felt that the streaming experience did not do our existing escape rooms justice and that it did not translate well to the online format.
Instead we’ve created a brand new online experience that is catered towards the online format. Our game-masters will be making use of images through a screen share as well as narrating the story.
CAN WE PLAY ON <INSERT VIDEO CHAT APPLICATION> INSTEAD?
No, at this time all of our gamemasters are only trained on the Zoom platform, and the game makes use of functions in that app. Using different video streaming platforms may be something that we look at doing in the future. If you have a suggestion please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT TIME ZONE ARE GAMES LISTED IN?
Please note that all games are run on Mountain Standard Time (Calgary time).
WHAT PAYMENT OPTIONS DO YOU ACCEPT?
We accept payment by Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard, or America Express.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
- Cancellations more than 48 hours prior to the start of your game will be given a full refund.
- Cancellations between 3 hours & 48 hours will be allowed to re-book for free, but no refund will be given.
- No refunds or credits will be given for short notice cancellations made less than 3 hours before your start time.
Please email: email@example.com in order to change or cancel your booking.
