I've been critically reviewing fandoms and geek culture for eight years. After spending four years of college focusing on literary analysis, I now apply that passion to my hobbies and love for the geekdom.

Escape rooms become popular around 2010, and play out just as they sound. Yourself (and usually a cooperative team) get together to try and escape a room using clues and quick wit. They can play out in a multitude of ways covering a wide array of genres and roleplay stories. The possibilities are endless.

While usually played out in a fixed location where you can play out the story in an actual locked room, there are digital options as well. Given these trying times where isolation is encouraged, we found an at home option that may be to your liking. A Harry Potter escape room that can be played from the comfort of your very home.

This escape room is aptly named the “Hogwarts Digital Escape Room” and the set up is as such:

Welcome to Hogwarts

It is your first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and you could not be more excited. You were just sorted into your dream house and you had dinner with your new classmates. It is time to head back to the common room and get to know your roommates.

As you head into the cozy room, the house prefect announces that you have a fun team building activity to complete before you get too settled into your new digs. The house prefect tells you about a new muggle trend where they lock themselves in rooms and have to answer puzzles to get out – no magic at all!

Next thing you know, the room is completely dark and you hear a door slam.

This escape experience was created by Sydney Krawiec, Youth Services Librarian at Peters Township Public Library in McMurray, PA. www.ptlibrary.org
