KumaEscape!

http://www.kumaescape.com/tickets/

The idea is, you and 10 other people are trapped in a locked room with every day items, and have to search for clues to figure out about how to escape.

I and one other person will be getting a ticket for July 31 at 8:30 pm. It lasts maybe an hour and a half at most, so you won't be out incredibly late.

I chose the last day of the month to try this as it's the last day with open space. We'll have to get tickets on our own ($36 each so too much for me to order a set for all of us) so please only RSVP once you've gotten your ticket. Don't wait too long--there's only 11 spaces total for the time slot I chose, including other groups ordering tickets on the KumaEscape site. Also there are NO refunds if you are late on the day off the event so keep that in mind!

I'm not sure yet if my +1 can come, so I'll post here if I have a ticket available. :)

    I can't believe I missed my 3rd room escape event. ;_; Stage 2 - yes! I'm there! *fingers crossed*

    Absolutely fun! Would do this again for sure.

    We didn't finish in time, but we were a puzzle and a half away. Go team!! It was a lot of fun. :) I'd like us to do KumaEscape Stage 2 also, which is coming in a month or two. I'll set that up as soon as it's available. In the meantime, there are apparently a lot of other events of this kind in the Bay Area--so if you find one you want to go to, make a suggested event for it! :)

    So... What time y'all arriving? I'm guessing early is best

    July 31

    • Sally

      I'll get there around 8 at the latest. :)

      Close to 820 for me.

    I'm not sure if I can make it now. If you need my ticket please message me. I can figure out a way to transfer it to you.

    My apologies to the former member who recently joined up for KumaEscape. I took a second look at your application, and decided I'd prefer you to reapply with more information that would confirm you as female. I fully admit I should have asked that before approving your membership. I am far from perfect, and admit to my mistake. Worse yet, I didn't realize that upon removing your membership, I lost the capability to email you directly due to your meetup privacy settings. If you are reading this, please know that I'll gladly refund your ticket price out of my own pocket, or you can reapply and I'll accept you again as a member. I want to do my best to make things right. Send me an email ([masked]) or feel free to come to KumaEscape anyway, and I will apologize to you in person. Everyone in this group is awesomely friendly and fun to meet, and the last thing I want is for you to feel put out because of my hasty decision.

    I can't go this time, but I'd be interested in going next time. Have fun~

    Make sure you all got your tickets! There's a limited amount and the ticketing is taken care of by the KumaEscape people, so I can't say if there's still space for the 31st or not. :)

      Ooh, just 2 more players and it'll be an unofficial Geek Girls event! I wonder if we can book a whole game next time at a discount?

      July 28

    • Sally

      Pretty sure there is no discount, the site basically says "if you want to reserve tickets as a group, buy the tickets in one order." Even if there was a discount I'd probably still cough up at least couple hundred bucks at once, which isn't something I can do with my present state of employment. :)

      Awesome, looking forward to meeting you too!

  • Mariah W.

    just got my ticket, see you all there!

    July 28

  • Michelle

    I'm dying to do this, but I can't that day! I'm with Jane...if another group wants to do this another day, let me know!

    July 20

  • Katie C. M.

    This is a great idea! I tried to go to 2 similar 'great escape' events in SF back in the day. It really is much more fun with more people, otherwise you can get stuck with a super quiet/shy table and end up basically doing the puzzle yourself or getting ignored by the other players.

    And this one is so much closer to where I live!

    If I'm able to get a ticket, I would love to join you ladies. It will be my first meetup for the group.

    July 20

    • Sally

      Did you manage to get the ticket? :) I can't wait!

      July 20

    • Katie C. M.

      Hi Sally, I did! Unfortunately, I double checked and I have another meet-up right before this one. So, I will only be able to meet you all after 8pm so we can all get checked in. Looking forward to it!

      July 20

  • Diana S.

    Got my ticket too. I've tagged along before on mystery hunts (Berkeley, MIT, BANG, DASH, Google), so think this will be a lot of fun!

    July 19

  • Jane B.

    I wish I could make it, but the timing doesn't work for me ... I'd be happy to host another time if you get more interest than you can accommodate this time around.

    July 17

    • Sally

      Sure! I'll let you know if we do.

      July 18

  • Sharon T

    Got mine. Sounds intriguing and it's pretty close to my house.

    July 17

  • L

    This sounds awesome! I'll get my ticket as soon as I get paid!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
