Escape rooms have gained popularity in Europe and Asia in the past several  years, and they are rapidly becoming more common in the USA. Founded in 2013, Clue Pursuit is proud to have been the first escape room in Missouri and in the first 20 escape rooms in the country!

 What makes Clue Pursuit Different?

Clue Pursuit is designed for your group of friends and family and yours alone. We don’t think it’s fair to be penalized for only having less than 8-10 people in your group by having to be forced to play with strangers. You have more liberties and feel more comfortable with your own group! Plus, if you only have 3 players and you’re with a group of 5 or more in another group, you often get left out. And, if you have children playing with you, you never know what the other people in the group will say in front of your kids. We don’t fill your room with strangers if your group doesn’t take up all the room because we care more about your personal experience than making as much money as we can on each time slot!

Clue Pursuit doesn’t limit the amount of clues you get, and you are monitored by a game master via webcam. Clues are sent via computer in the room so you don’t have the awkwardness of having an employee in the room with you or getting your clues slipped to you by a note under the door.

Team sizes

Team sizes are best if between 3-10 people depending on the room, but we can accommodate up to 12 in the John Monroe rooms.

… what if it’s just the 2 of us?

We wouldn’t want to be too closed minded about the team size but it is good to know before booking that with only 2 people the game becomes a bit too difficult, which might spoil the fun part. Therefore we usually advise people to bring at least 3 members. Certainly, if you decide to play with only two  and are willing to pay the minimum fee for 3 players , we will do everything we can to make the most of your game experience.

Clue Pursuit Live Timing Clock

When the big day arrives and you come to Clue Pursuit with your friends, families or colleagues – please arrive on time for the game. Games and instructions are rotating constantly and the reception has limited space. If you do not arrive on time, we reserve the right to shorten your game time accordingly, especially if there is another group right after yours in the same room.

The game time will be 60 minutes, however we need a couple of minutes before each session to do the instructions, and a few minutes afterwards for a group picture and explanation of the game. Bring a sense of urgency with you! There are lots of puzzles and codes to find in just one hour!
