Average rated:

Is your calendar empty because you can’t get together with all your friends and the events have been canceled due to Corona? We have the solution to do something really cool together! An interactive game that you can play from a WhatsApp group. The ultimate online escape room that you can play at home.

The Story
The board and the staff of the Holland-based International Hoogeboom School are in great panic. The country is in lockdown due to a virus outbreak and schools have to switch to digital home education. There is one problem: the school’s IT manager, Pieter de Roon, suddenly disappeared. It’s not for de Roon, to just disappear… Every sign of life is missing. You have been called in, to help the school find de Roon and solve this mystery.

The more the merrier…
You can play this game with a lot of people. A large group can be divided into several small teams, which can play simultaneously. Thanks to our experience in guiding many teams at the same time, we can guarantee all groups the optimal game experience.

This game really took us out of the 'Coronabubble'. I played it safely in my room, but felt the real rush of an escaperoom!

Had a fun night playing the online escape room! This game makes you feel, partly due to the tension, as if you are in another world for an hour. A great experience that I would recommend to everyone!

The Hoogeboom Musterie is a cool adventure in times of quarantaine. In the app group you will receive your assignments of the principal of the school. By logging in to secret websites, by solving puzzles and by tracing hints you will be able to unravel all secrets. You arrange a time with your family/friends and you add the principal. At this moment the 60 minutes playtime starts.

  3. Share all important information in the WhatsApp group

Important tips:

  1. The video call mentioned before has been found very useful for groups during the game in order to work and think well together. We advise you to make use of Skype, Teams, Hangouts Houseparty or another app to communicate with your time during the game.

During the game you will be in contact with the principal of the International Hoogeboom School. He will accompany the game and will be available for questions. The principal can cope with a lot, but we like to keep it all manageable for him.
Not that much! Everyone that participates has to be in the same WhatsApp group. Besides, a minimum of one person needs to be able to use the internet. Because of this a good connection with the internet is needed. The person(s) using the internet can search best with the use of a laptop/computer. We also advise to make use of a video call using Skype, Teams or a Google Hangouts call.
Make sure you will be all set in one WhatsApp group 10 minutes prior to the reserved time. In the confirmation email you can find the phone number of Mr. Dremstijn, the head principal. 10 minutes prior to the game you can add this number and the game can finally start…. Exciting!

Definitely! The principal will be available throughout the game and likes to think along. After all.. The mystery has to be solved as soon as possible!
