Print + Cut + Escape

Virtual Team Building

Print + Cut + Escape


How it works

Keeping teams engaged while working remotely can be tough. But with Print+Cut+Escape!, our new print-at-home escape game experience, virtual team building has never been so fun.

Playing the game is as easy as it sounds. Colleagues print their puzzles at home, join a Zoom party, and play along together on our online platform. There is even a pre-printed solution for colleagues without a printer!


Log on to the online platform and download the .pdf file. Print it out at home.


Get your scissors handy! Follow the instructions to cut out the puzzles.


Use your code to access the online game system. Solve the puzzles before the time runs out.

Setting up your virtual team building


Set a date for your team building

Share the idea with your teams and pencil in a date. It’s a good idea to set this at least a week out as it may take some time for any pre-printed copies to arrive in the post.


Find out who has a printer and who doesn't

First thing’s first, you’ll need to find out who has a printer. If certain colleagues don’t have access to one, you can order a pre-printed version to be delivered to their door, but you will need this information before completing your order. You will also need their postal address.


Place your order

Head on to our order page and build your own package. You will need to order an access code to the online game system for each team, as well as pre-printed versions for those without access to a printer. We will post the pre-printed copies the next working day. (Please note that Royal Mail is currently experiencing some delays. Please refer to their website for updates).


Send out confirmation invitations

Once everyone has received their game, it’s time to send out a confirmation email. Nominate a leader for each group, who can send an invite to their team using Zoom, or whichever video conferencing tool you use. This invite should also include the team’s individual link to the online game system, which will be included in your order confirmation email. You could also set up another link for the whole team to connect before and after the game (most teams take approx. 90 minutes to complete the mission).


Play and enjoy a fun night in

On the day, get your team to have a drink and a snack handy, and start playing! You could even set up a friendly competition between teams. As each team completes the mission, they can meet up in the team video conference to share their experience.

Mission FAQ

Nominate an organiser for each team and get them to send an invitation on Zoom, or whichever videoconferencing tool you use. This should also include the group’s unique access code to the online game system. Once it’s time to play, the team connects to the system together and progresses through the game simultaneously. Each player has their own printed puzzle at home which they can use to test possible solutions, and share them with the team. You can find more comprehensive instructions here.

Teams take an average of 90 mins to complete the mission. Unlike other escape experiences, in this case the clock ticks up, so the game can continue indefinitely until it is solved.

If certain team members don’t have access to a printer, we can send a pre-printed version to their door. When you head to the order page to build your package, you can nominate how many pre-printed versions are needed. You will also need to provide their mailing address. We will ship the pre-printed copies the next working day (Please note that Royal Mail is currently experiencing some delays. Please refer to its website for updates)

We ship pre-printed versions First Class, the next working day following the order. While Royal Mail usually aims for parcels to arrive the next day (not including Sunday) please note it is currently experiencing some delays. Please refer to its website for updates.

The number of participants is only limited by the bandwidth of your videoconferencing solution. However, we recommend that participants are divided into teams compromising a maximum of 6 players. In this case, each team would connect to the online game system using a different link, and progress through the game as a team. We would not recommend a larger number of players per link as collaboration would become difficult at this point.

We recommend you divide participants into smaller teams comprising a maximum of 6 players. You will need to purchase an individual access code to the online game system for each team.

Game system faq

The timer goes upwards to alleviate the stress of time, so you can play as long as you wish. You can also reset the game to the first step with the 'Reset' button at the top during the game.

No need to panic, just return to your order confirmation email, click on the "secret link", then on the green button and voila you should be back where you left the game off

We recommend to cut everything in advance, but you can also play then stop to cut for a new chapter it is up to you. The face recognition is the only part where we would say you can figure out the solution first then cut the relevant pieces. But if you are like us and consider the cutting as part of the fun, why not cut all of them?! :)

You will see a question mark at the bottom of each page, which has 3 pre written clues. You can also reveal the solution if you get completely stuck.
