The Conren staff, recently participated in a team building exercise at Breakout in Manchester.
Breakout is a live escape room game where you are locked in a room with your colleagues for an hour and you have to solve a series of puzzles and mysteries to escape!! The teams were made up of a mixture of sales, marketing, accounts, production and our in-house contracting department.
You have to search high and low for clues and work together if you want to escape. You have 60 minutes to escape by using only your brain, there are no physical activities or challenges involved in the game and around 50% of teams escape. Common sense goes a lot further than intelligence and you do not need any special ‘skills’ to get out of the room, a basic level of written English and numbers is enough. Each room has a difficulty rating out of 5.
The day got quite competitive between the teams and everyone is now looking forward to a repeat visit, to see who could break out next!
