On Saturday, October 7, 2023, the seventh world championship in playing escape room games will be held in Wroclaw, Poland!

Do you remember the championship in playing escape room games, where the team from Slovenia won? This championship has been gone for a long time, but it is the seventh year of ER CHAMP, which we have so far not known enough about in Slovenia, because among the 1,692 players in 532 teams, we did not find any Slovenian participants. But we will change that! We are glad that the members of the GIZ ER.SI escape room association have been invited as guests to the finale of the event, from where we will of course report and invite you to participate next year. Slovenians are excellent players of escape room games and it’s time for new victories!

How did ER CHAMP 2023 go?

The elimination games took place on June 24, 2023 online. Story: Players have landed on the surface of an unknown, strange planet covered in menacing, fungus-like organisms. The goal: to do everything to return to Earth. However, it was not an easy task! Players had to solve puzzles hidden by the inhabitants of an alien planet. Unfortunately, not everyone returned home…
