Friday Fun: 40xEscape

This week’s game literally lives up to its name…forty locked doors and forty tests of your problem solving skills. Some of the solutions will be obvious, but others will test your patience to solve them. Do you have what it takes to escape forty times or will you be locked up in defeat?
