Hotel Escape is a dice-rolling race-game where the players are trying to escape a burning hotel as quickly as they can. They must roll a die that has both positive and negative numbers on the faces to determine if they go down towards the lobby or back up into the hotel.
Players can play “Classic Edition“, “Zombie Edition” (zombies are chasing you), and “Rescue Edition” (take other guests with you).
This game is intended to help introduce or increase familiarity with the concept of negative numbers and the conventions of the number line.
