It's getting colder, we're officially in the holiday season, and the relatives are descending! Home is a great place to be—but for those who might harbor a secret yearning to escape, act out your fantasy here!
We are pleased to present Escape from Thorne Mansion, an online game that places you in the midst of the beloved Thorne Miniature Rooms (now decorated for the holidays!) and challenges you to, well, escape. To play: point and click your way through the maze of the Thorne Rooms. Be sure to carefully read the text to collect the clues you need to escape. The first person to make it out alive and post the answer to the final clue in the blog comments will win a prize. Consider it our holiday gift to you.
