Jess: Two years ago Thames & Kosmos launched Inka and Markus Brand’s EXIT: The Game series and today the line includes thirteen exciting, puzzle-packed games. According to the publisher 9 of the titles are some of their best-sellers across all product categories and the first three titles in the EXIT: The Game series won the Kennerspiel des Jahres (German for “Connoisseur/Expert Game of the Year”) in 2017!
It was a landmark event as this was the first time a series of games had been awarded the title. With the series’s success, Thames & Kosmos is committed to publishing approximately 20 more titles in the next few years. The EXIT: The Game series became a fast favorite for me the first time I played The Abandoned Cabin so it’s exciting to hear they will be publishing even more titles in the future.
“EXIT mimics real-life escape room adventures without the physical space and admission fees. Each title is unique, with a different premise and setting, and riddles that are thoughtfully integrated into the storyline,” explained Andrew Quartin, CEO of Thames & Kosmos. “These games allow you to bring the excitement, intensity, and team spirit of an escape room to your own living room. As more and more consumers continue to crave this kind of intimate, at-home entertainment, they inevitably find their way to EXIT. With consumer demand necessitating the constant addition of new titles to the line, there are options for players of all skill levels, making these games a fun, engaging, and affordable cooperative experience for adults, teens, families—anyone looking for something fun to do in a group setting.”
Games in the EXIT series are available for purchase at major retail stores including Target, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon and at your local neighborhood toy and game stores. Each EXIT game has a suggested retail price of $14.95, with the exception of the newly released EXIT: The Catacombs of Horror; this two-part thriller offers double the play time and is available now for $24.95.
