Descent of the Cullodens - Chapter 2 - A Toast to the Host Who Can Boast the Most Ghost ft. Dave Luza and Matthew Jude

00:0000:00

The ghosts continue to grow restless in Escape This Podcast: Descent of the Cullodens! This is chapter 2 of 10 as new guests join us and continue the quest into the growing mystery of Culloden Manor.

More Culloden descendants have arrived, but with the car out of commission, they'll need to approach by foot. Once at the old home's doors, they search for a way in and find themselves in a dusty, unused kitchen. But the house may not be quite as empty as it appeared...

We're joined this episode by Dave Luza and Matthew Jude from the podcast This Game Is Broken. You can find their podcast online or on iTunes, and it may be a good idea to check out the Escape This Podcast inspired episode created by Dave.

Season 3 - Episode 11: The Crimes of Puzzlo - Every Frame A Painting ft. Advanced Sagebrush and Shootouts

00:0000:00

Stop. Collaborate and Listen.
That's our policy at Escape This Podcast, perfectly encapsulated in this episode. This episode is part of a collaborative project with Advanced Sagebrush & Shootouts that you should go listen to! We've been guests on their show during their current arc, which features this escape room! The room was designed by Dani, but run by AS&S's resident gamemaster Devin (who you may remember from his priestly guest role during Children of Maesaris).

What do you do when you're trapped in a room, kidnapped by the devious puzzle-based-criminal Puzzlo? Why, solve the puzzles and escape the room, that's what!

We're joined this episode by Devin, Whitt and Jared from Advanced Sagebrush and Shootouts. Go and check out the start of our journey together.
