So we're probably a bit late in the game for this, but I think there's definitely a promising link between logic puzzles and escape rooms that could be explored a bit more. Anyhow, it's definitely interesting that a big player like Red Bull are getting involved in the whole mind sports thing, especially when they are doing cool things like organise a world championship.
And they also seem switched on enough that they are having the finals in Budapest, the home of the escape room!http://www.redbullmindgamers.com/mission
Also of interest is that there is a UK team (the Average Gamerz) -- are any of these names particularly familiar to anyone?
Unfortunately Red Bull seem incapable of making a website that functions without (a) lagging massively and (b) display errors in Safari/Firefox so I can't see who is on any of the other teams apart from the US. They do have a name I recognise, Tammy McLeod, who has previously won the US Sudoku Championship.
For anyone interested, there are apparently a couple of wildcard teams, which you can qualify for by completing an online game.
