    This new online escape room is basically a Harry-Potter themed version of life in 2020.

    A children’s librarian from a Pittsburgh suburb has created a new Harry Potter-themed diversion for kids stuck at home: an online escape room.

    At the start of the game, players have just been assigned to their houses at Hogwarts and will now begin a team-building exercise, based on “a new muggle trend where they lock themselves in rooms and have to answer puzzles to get out.” Sounds fun, and also exactly like our current social distancing reality!

    Sydney Krawiec, Youth Services Librarian at Peters Township Public Library in McMurray, Pennsylvania, created the game, which can be played by a single person or a group. You can find it here.
