    Cryptograms are great for these sorts of things - if you used a letter number cipher (depending on how good at these your guests are, you could just use a simple a=1, b=2 etc) and spell out a word that switches to numbers that are the combination, this could work with most lock types. If you want to get fancy, I just ordered this on amazon for an escape room-type event I'm doing for a client in the fall. They have some really unique locks for super cheap (I bought about 5 other ones as well and can't wait to start playing with them for inspiration).

    I think that the storyline will determine your codes to crack - so they don't seem super random, that your guests find the codes follow a theme. Once you determine that, then it will all probably fall into place!

    Kerimonster -- It's going great! I looked at Lowes for a hasp lock but they didn't have the kind you suggested so we opted to do several different locks on the pillory. I think we have six on there right now. We've come up with all of the clues (I THINK!) and have been trying to find everything that's needed for each of the clues. I've really been talking it up in hopes that it will encourage even more people to come this year. Plus the theme has really intrigued some of the people that I've invited.... Fingers crossed. Thanks again to you and everyone else that helped me get this going.

    We do an escape room every year along with the party theme - last year was voodoo, before that horror movies. I ran out of time to work on the video last year so we jumped off of what we did for the prior year. We typically have up to five players each round and everyone is handcuffed. Adult party. No clue as to what we will do this year....a friend suggested an 80s Zombie Prom - UHG lol.

    ESCAPE the TORTURE - Need ideas!
    We do escape rooms every year, customized to the party theme. The two most recent were a Saw escape room (Jigsaw "managed" via video) and it worked so well that we used the same outline to do a VooDoo themed one. So much fun! Up to five players at a time and everyone gets handcuffed. We hired a person to reset the room after each group and that worked out perfect and kept the games going smooth.
