The Hogwarts Digital Escape Room can be played individually or as a group. 

In the game, you’re a first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In your house common room, a prefect tells you about a muggle trend where non-magical folks lock themselves in rooms and have to solve puzzles in order to get out.

From there, the escape room fun begins. Puzzles involve videos, links and photos.
