Escape Your Grocery Bill: Play the Great Coffee Break

Eight O’Clock Coffee is providing more than fuel for busy parents-- the brand is giving them a chance to win a pick-me-up for their grocery tab while participating in a fun activity with their kids.

Families are invited to play The Great Coffee Break, the first Augmented Reality-triggered digital game created by Eight O’Clock Coffee and Escape the Room. The Great Coffee Break will run through to August 11, 2018 at, and eight people will win the grand prize: free groceries for a year.

The Great Coffee Break is the first Augmented Reality-triggered digital game designed by Escape the Room and can be launched by scanning any Eight O’Clock Coffee package with the Shazam app – or by going directly to Set in a fictitious animated roastery, players will solve coffee-themed puzzles to help bags of Eight O’Clock “escape the roastery.”

Players of the Great Coffee Break will explore different virtual rooms within the roastery to find clues, solve puzzles, and complete the mission. Eight O’Clock Coffee’s game is designed to facilitate the satisfying feeling of discovery that players experience in physical escape rooms – which may be the reason that they have grown in the US from 22 in 2014 to about 2,300 today.

I've signed up to play The Great Coffee Break and am on a mission to solve the puzzles!

I love that brand of coffee. One of the best things we ever did was teach our kid how to make coffee at about the age of 5. We get coffee every morning when the boys are up before us. :)
