Here’s the ‘covering my own rear’ section of the website. If you wanted to know more about how I get to play most of the rooms, or how (if at all) this blog is funded, then read on!

Armchair Escapist is a personal blog written and edited by me – Jamie. I’m basically a one-man band, so be nice.

If you see anything that is incorrect or misleading, please let me know.


Occasionally, I’m lucky enough to have escape room owners and puzzle makers offer me a complimentary experience in exchange for a review.

Where this is the case I state it clearly at the end of the review, and I’ll do my best to ensure that it doesn’t affect my opinion of the game.

In adherence to Google’s best practice guidelines, any room that I play for free will have all links to the venue marked as ‘sponsored’.

For more information, check out my Review Policy.


Some reviews and articles may contain affiliate links to specific products. If you buy something through these links, I may get a small commission. It costs you nothing, but it can really help a small puzzler like me. Wherever an article contains affiliate links, I’ll mention it at the very beginning of the page.

The presence of an affiliate link doesn’t influence the reviews that I write. The affiliate link is always an afterthought, so my reviews are still as balanced as can be.
