Escape The Room - Secret of Dr Gravely's Retreat

Escape The Room - Secret of Dr Gravely's Retreat is suitable for all ages from age 13+.  Escape the Room games began as digital adventures and quickly turned into real-life events all around the world where players are locked in a room and must uncover clues and hidden objects to escape. ThinkFun’s version of Escape the Room allows you to bring all the excitement of these experiences into your very own home! 

Why not plan an evening party, invite your guests to a themed evening of mystery but with underlying fun.  As the host of this event, it will be your role to invite friends, setup for the evening, and walk your guests through the introductory part of the story. After the introduction, you will join your friends in unraveling the story, and participate in solving the mystery and escaping the room (without actually locking it, of course!). 


This box contains: 

  • Scene Card 1 : Arrival
  • 4 Sealed Envelopes labelled as: The Desk; The Safe; The Alcove; The Laboratory Door
  • Mysterius Secret Items (inside the 4 envelopes)
  • Solution Wheel
  • Full Instruction Manual

Planning The Event

As the host, make sure to follow these simple steps to prepare for your event:

All of the envelopes will be opened in play as part of the game. Leave them in the box for now.

2) DO NOT READ THE FIRST SCENE CARD. Leave this card in the box so you don’t accidentally sneak a peek. You will read this card to your guests when the game begins.

3) Table Setup: Secret of Dr. Gravely’s Retreat is a table-top game with quite a few parts. You will need a fair amount of space, so plan your event around a large table with seating for each player where they have a good view of the table. 

4) Timer: You will need a timer or clock during the game.

5) Paper and Pencil: You’ll need them for taking notes to help solve the mystery.

6) Internet Access (optional): You will need internet access if your group wants to use ThinkFun's online hints during the game.

7) Set the Mood (optional): You may want to encourage your guests to dress in period attire. Prepare some harpsichord music or classical opera to enhance the atmosphere.

8) Invite Players:

Secret of Dr. Gravely’s Retreat 

 is designed for groups of three to eight. Gather your guests and enjoy!
