2017 Room of the Year Award Nominees

It’s been quite the inaugural year here at Partly Wicked.  We hit more than 85 games in at least 12 cities worldwide.  We’ve seen and done some pretty amazing rooms (and more than a few horrible ones).  But the best of the best deserve to have some extra special recognition.

Project: Escape: “Knight’s Quest” (Marietta, GA)

A local company with a completely unique approach to design, Project: Escape excels at immersion because they theme their rooms first, and then design the game experience to fit their unique spaces.  When they invited us to come tear them apart, we had a hard time finding any flaws to rip open.  This company knew what tough critics we are, but took on the challenge anyway.  Read the Review
