THE QUICK AND DIRTY
Play if… you like the Mummy movies or anything Egypt.
Avoid if… you don’t want to get dirty or have asthma.
Escape Room Live Georgetown:
Address: 3345 M St NW, Washington, DC 20007 (click address for Google Map)
Description (from the company website): You are archaeologists, lost in a forbidden Egyptian tomb with the stone doors sealed behind you. Air is running out & the curse of Anubis will take you! Escape is the only option. Find the secret passage to escape with your life!
Difficulty (1-10): 6/10
Time Limit: 45
Cost: $28 (+ tax per person?)
Party Size: 8-10
Staging Area: This is probably the swankiest location we’ve seen. Tons of seating AND A BAR (wine and beer). There are also free lockers to stash your belongings before you enter the room.
Metro Access/Parking: Rosslyn metro and then a .9 mile walk across the Key Bridge. It’s Georgetown, so parking can be difficult (so definitely carpool and use the parking garage for Georgetown Mall (at Wisconsin and M, head down the hill towards K Street). We suggest Uber or Lyft.

This is the video we took just after we completed the room:
Description of the room: You enter the first room of an Egyptian tomb. There are a number of statues along the walls, a big-ass pharaoh’s head, and some weird altar in the center, and some archaeology tools scattered among everything else.
Understanding of the Mission: Find out what happened to the (now) missing archaeologist and escape before getting cursed.
Did We Escape: Yes, and we SHOULD have made the freakin’ leader board… [Jason is still pissed about this. Mike is pissed too, but only slightly less than Jason’s all burning pissed-off-ed-ness (I hear there are creams for that)]
Time Remaining: 5:30
Our Suggested Party Size: We had 5. Six should probably be your max for this room.
Did the room challenge the entire team? Mostly
Members of our team (other than the ERG): Birgit, Whitney, and Angie
Worth the time and money? Yes
Where to Eat/Drink Before/After: It’s Georgetown, so there are plenty of places to go for food and drinks, depending on your budget. We’ll leave it to Google, since we had beer at their bar.
