Ce am invatat de la copiii care se joaca jocuri de room escape - The Dungeon

What I learned from the children who play room escape games

Every day, we are inspired by the innocence of children. Not only their innocence, but also their way of seeing the world. When an adult sees the world through the eyes of a child, he sees a better, more colorful and happier world.

Well, at The Dungeon, we also like to see our games through the eyes of children. We are amazed by both their creativity and their sense of observation. Moreover, they amaze us with the logic they developed from an early age. We must confess that recently, we participated in the Lollyboom festival, a festival for the whole family, where we put the little ones' curiosity and logic to the test. How did I do that? First of all, I created a treasure hunt game in nature. The stake was to be better friends with the environment, to get acquainted with the activities of the festival, to understand our riddles and last but not least, the big stake was, as a child of about 5 years old realized: "Fun ! ”. Even though the adults helped them along the way, they amazed us with their competitive spirit and perseverance. Even if there was no clear clue to them, they would return and ask for additional clues, until they solved the whole treasure hunt. The satisfaction at the end was all the greater the more they were rewarded for their effort.

O alta modalitate de a-i angrena in activitati, era de a rezolva mici puzzle-uri logice, bazate pe simboluri ce trebuiau transformate in numere. De mentionat este ca, aceste joculete erau rezolvate si de copiii care abia cunosteau numerele, mai putin cele romane. Ei bine, uimirea noastra a fost la fel de mare ca a parintilor, cand dupa ce le explicam care e logica, stiau sa rezolve acele joculete. Si am fost cu atat mai surprinsi cu cat, unii adulti nici nu intelegeau ce rezolva copiii lor. Aici s-a vazut ca gandirea simpla a copiilor, e tot ceea ce trebuie pentru a rezolva o problema. Noi, adultii, tindem sa le complicam si sa le imbarligam pana nu mai stim in ce ne-am bagat, insa copiii vad totul cu o mai mare claritate decat ne-am putea inchipui 🙂

La fel se intampla si la The Dungeon, in locatiile noastre. La The Secret, copiii de peste 12 ani pot veni sa se joace singuri, neavand nevoie de ajutorul adultilor. La The Experiment in schimb, recomandam sa vina insotiti de adulti, fiindca acolo lucrurile devin mai complicate si jocul e mai dificil, fiind recomandat persoanelor peste 18 ani. De foarte multe ori, copiii s-au dovedit a fi de mare ajutor in joaca de-a evadarea, deoarece vin cu idei noi, creative si perspective indraznete 🙂 E important sa le acordam incredere si sa le luam ideea in considerare atunci cand ne jucam impreuna, deoarece nu inseamna ca daca suntem adulti, le stim pe toate. Ba mai mult, se creeaza o conexiune mai puternica si se sudeaza echipa parinte-copil. Comunicarea e punctul forte al jocului si in acest caz, ascultarea. Iar toate acestea, vin la pachet cu distractia. Jocul de room-escape e o activitate de relaxare presarata cu amuzament si nici nu ar mai exista, daca nu ar avea si putin haz.

Ah, inca ceva. De ce se intampla ca uneori un grup de copiii sa evadeze mai repede decat un grup de adulti? Pentru ca sunt curiosi, rapizi, mișuna peste tot si comunica foarte bine. Chiar daca organizarea lor e mai haotica, vorba aceea:  intotdeauna exista o ordine in haos 🙂

Sometimes, we forget that play is just as important now, in adulthood. For children, it is a daily mantra. We are happy when children step on our doorstep, because they cheer us up and give us energy, but they also teach us to be as creative and open as possible to new ideas. And we rejoice even more, when the children give us a lesson and show us to think simpler and more colorful.

That being said, kids, let's go to The Dungeon!
