Private vs Shared Games


We have 2 ways to play here at Clue IQ, Shared Games and Private Games. Most escape rooms all have Shared Games (some call it public or mixed but it’s all the same thing). This means if you buy 3 out of 8 tickets the other 5 remain for sale and you may or may not play with other people. Some people love this because they don’t have enough players to form a group or they just like the idea of meeting new people. We have had people come in and play in a shared game and make new friends, some even make plans to come back to play together! We have Shared Game tickets available for $31/person.

At the same time we realize this is not for everyone and some people prefer to have a private experience just for their group. Typically escape rooms tell you to buy all of the tickets if you want to do this, but we don’t feel that is a realistic (or very nice) option. This is why we also offer Private Games. With Private Games your group will have the entire experience for just you, regardless of how many people are playing. Private Games also give you the advantage of not needing to know exactly how many players will be participating ahead of time. Once you reserve a room privately, the time slot is yours alone so we can easily add more players to your reservation at a later date.  Private Games are priced based on the number of people participating between $28 – $46/person. If you want to add additional players on later you can always do so for $31/player (regardless of how many you initially made the reservation for). It should be noted you do receive an automatic group discount for reserving it for larger groups up front. 

Shared Games:

  • Groups will be mixed together. This means you might play with strangers.
  • No children under the age of 13 are allowed in Shared games. 
  • All tickets remain for sale until they sell out or the event starts. 
  • We have 0 flexibility with late arrivals. As it is not fair to the other ticket holders any late arrivals will be unable to join a game in progress. 
  • No players can be added on above the listed maximums:
    • Blitzkrieg max is 6
    • Conspiracy max is 8
    • Excalibur max is 8

Private Games:

  • The entire game is reserved for just your group!
  • Group discounts available for larger parties. Private Game pricing is as low as $28/person for larger groups. 
    • Discount is only available if all tickets are purchased together at the time the reservation is made.
  • If you have a team member running behind we can start the game and have them join you in progress.
  • Have more time slot choices available. We have extra early morning and late night time slots available for Private Games only. 
  • Additional players can be added to your reservation at any time at the standard ticket rate of $31/player, up to the listed maximums:
    • Blitzkrieg max is 8
    • Conspiracy max is 12
    • Excalibur max is 10
