ETR EXPERIENCE:  PATRON

"I can't say enough about how glad I am to continue to be an ESCAPETHEROOMers' P.I.s!  When the pandemic began, the escape room industry really took a hit, and those of us who used escape room experiences as a fun outlet were left without. As the industry evolved to online and digital experiences, there was a lot of hesitation among players around the world about whether it was worthwhile to invest in these experiences. I admit that I was one of those hesitant to take the plunge. While there were a few websites that offered some reviews, I credit Brandon and Cici (owners and founders of ETR) for creating a comprehensive website that made the process of reviewing and learning about escape rooms more immersive and personable. We got to learn about Cici and Brandon (the players), their reviews, behind-the-scenes interviews, and more - created an ecosystem that players and creators could rely on. ETR also provided a lifeline to so many in our hobby and the escape room industry - to reconnecting players to the hobby, to connecting players from around the world with each other, to offering quality reviews to those looking to try out new escape rooms. I have had a blast playing through so many narratives, mysteries, and puzzles as an ETR P.I, and I appreciate being able to share my experiences with the world so that I can share our love and support for this industry. Lastly, I am proud that Brandon and Cici are two proud AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) professionals who don't shy away from the joy of this great pastime.  Brandon, Cici, and everyone associated with ETR are just fantastic!" ✍️

"I had a great time playtesting a remote escape room with ETR. Cici and Brandon are a lot of fun, and they're clever as hell. Thank you both for everything you do for this community and fandom!" ✍️

ETR EXPERIENCE:  PATRON

"I can’t believe that I get to play all sorts of cool games from across the world together with such experienced, smart and humble people as Brandon and Cici of ETR! I’ve played 6 games together with them now and it has really helped me understand what types of games I prefer and also helped me learn how to reflect and how to write a better review (although I still find it a bit tricky). I love the fact that while playing a game with ETR they can sometimes send me a link to their youtube where they’re interviewing the creator of the game we are playing. To play, review and hear the creators talk about their game really creates the perfect escape room circle for me! Thank you guys for this amazing opportunity and content!" ✍️

ETR EXPERIENCE:  PATRON

"Such a fun couple and they put so much effort into making and keeping relationships with Escape Room and puzzle makers/creators. Getting others involved to help review games is a fantastic idea - and it's always a pleasure to chat to them or watch their interview videos with escape companies. Such a fun thing during a time where we can't get out and go to real Escape Rooms, and I have discovered so many cool entertaining sites and activities through their site. I trust their reviews fully. Superb!!!" ✍️

"It's always a lot of fun to join Cici and Brandon on a ESCAPETHEROOMers adventure!  I love how they select a social, enthusiastic group of players that work together like a charm.  Made a lot of new friends and played rooms around the world that I otherwise would never see and experience." ✍️

"We had so much fun earning our P.I. badge and getting to meet and play with Cici & Brandon (and the other P.i.). This is such a wonderful initiative to bring people together in the escape room community! We have often found their reviews helpful in weighing out game options, and we love that now there are even more perspectives to help us better assess if a game is right for us!" ✍️
