Your eyes open and body aches. Was it all just a bad dream? Nope! Your touring helicopter has crashed on a sandy beach and you're stuck under mangled pieces of debris. After several pushes and grunts you free yourself, stand up and take a look around. What is this place?! BOOM! BANG! Terrified you twist around and see a monstrous volcano erupting in the distance. Is this part of the field trip? Definitely not! The ground beneath your feet begins to tremble and radiate heat. Only the savviest castaways will find the island's secret exit before getting blown away...
READY TO ESCAPE THE ISLAND?
PLAY VIDEO BELOW!
Good news! Escape from Jigsaw Island requires little prep work to play. Simply print the game (single sided) in color and find your favorite pair of scissors, some dark colored pens and a notepad. The solution to the mystery is on the last page (pg. 12) so make sure not to look at it! It's covered by a special stop sign page.
Before viewing the solution, players will need to carve (write) a secret code into a tree located at the center of the island. This code is obtained by solving 8 puzzles and completing the island map. Players lose if they view the last page with a missing or invalid code written into the tree.
Advanced setup instructions
Escape from Jigsaw Island is a flexible game that can be played tabletop or as a fully immersive escape room. Simply hide all of the clues in your room (including scissors and pens) or add your own puzzles and props to spice things up. You can also lock the final solution in a safe or suitcase with the game's final 3 digit code. The possibilities are endless!
