We bought two rooms from AJ Hughes and her company. As a new Escape Room owner, we could not and did not want to create our own games. From start to finish AJ and her games more than met my expectations. Her game packages are thorough, easy to follow, complete, and precise. She was always helpful and accessible via email or phone at any time. Using her games and the way they were so professionally done allowed me the ability to focus on getting my business open quickly as well as training my staff literally within 2 days. The game flows were easy to follow and my staff caught on quickly and were ready to become game masters before I knew it. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and will also be contacting her again in the future when we are ready to expand.

Thank you for the good service with the purchase of your Da Vinci escape room.  Being new to this type of business I was a little unsure what to expect.  Your instructions and descriptions to install the game was easy to understand and follow. We received everything needed to install a unique and entertaining escape game.  We appreciate the good service and we will contact you when we have more gaming needs.

Ticking Time by Design has games that are both challenging and thematically appealing. We have received nice comments from first time players to enthusiasts regarding her game designs. She also responds promptly to any questions you may have about her games. We purchased site licenses for Area 51, Da Vinci, and Yin Yang, and recommend all three games to Escape Room owners.

I purchased Da Vinci’s office, and I can say it’s a very clever room with all clues on theme and very well designed! You can tell AJ put a lot of thought into this room. The game flow is easy to understand and build with some great opportunities to convert puzzles to high tech if that’s your strong suit. Definitely worth the money!

I purchased Da Vinci’s Office several months ago,. It was easy to build and quick to get up and running with my best friend Amazon and AJ’s easy to follow directions. It has paid several times for itself several times over for sure.


I purchased 4 games from AJ at Escape Room Game For Sale and Ticking Time by Design. The price was very reasonable and the information was thorough and very easy to follow. If you are looking for quality rooms that will set you apart in your area I highly recommend AJ and her concepts.


AJ Hughes did a magnificent job coming to our location and setting up our room escape.  She was detailed, thorough and answered all the questions we had.  We shared a number of laughs and learned a ton from her on how to market a room escape!

Thank you, AJ Hughes, for creating and sharing “The Hangover”.  I didn’t realize how hard and long it would take to create our “own” room which makes me appreciate yours!  Even though we are close to opening I needed something quick to put together to continue keeping our customers coming
back while we work on our next two rooms. Everything you sent looks great and should be easy to set-up. I appreciate that you are only an e-mail or phone call away for any help that I may need while putting this room together.

I purchased Area 51, The Hangover and Da Vinci’s office for my new establishment. The games are easy to follow and construct. AJ was great, she set up time extremely fast and she had the games going in the matter of several days. The games have proven themselves and have been up and successfully running for over eight months now. Thank you, AJ, for all the help and guidance as well as the easy to follow instructions. I will be back for more games.


Hey AJ, just wanted to let you know Da Vinci’s office is up and running and everyone has been having a blast trying to escape!  Thank you for your help and the great puzzles.

We purchased Hangover, Da Vinci and Area 51, and people absolutely love them.

I am in Australia and was looking to start my own operation. I contacted AJ and despite the time difference she was more than helpful and her directions were great. I got all the documents the same day I purchased the games and with AJ’s guidance, I got the rooms up and running quickly. I purchased Area 51 and The Hangover. The rooms are doing great. I could not be happier.

We are running a business in Europe and was looking for some rooms that are not a European theme. I had looked online for a while and found Ticking Time by Design. I have been working with AJ to build my business and it has been very successful so far. She has helped me with everything from building the games, to marketing and getting a social media presence. Thank you for all the help AJ, you’ve been great.

In order to start our business, I had AJ and her crew fly out to my location. I had contracted her to build the rooms for us. All I had to do was purchase the props and furniture through a detailed list that AJ had sent to me prior to flying out.  Once they got to our location AJ and her crew absolutely swarmed the rooms and had them up and running in a matter of days. For three rooms that is no small miracle, but they got it done. I am very pleased with the work and could not be happier.


What can I say, other than the Area 51 game from AJ is phenomenal! Extremely well thought out, with a “non-linear” game flow, which both I and my customers absolutely love! She is extremely accessible if you have questions and has been fantastic to work with throughout the process. I’ve worked with numerous other designers on other rooms and so far this experience and the game itself are by far my favorite design and designer! I’ll certainly be looking at other room options when I am looking to change rooms and/or when new ones are available!
