What is the Escape The Murder House TikTok puzzle?

A new TikTok challenge is going viral called the Escape The Murder House trend, and this is one that everyone can take part in.

It involves drawing out a grid onto a piece of paper – this is the murder house. The grid then has lots of small squares within it with the word killer written in each one. When you enter a square, you kill the killer.

You must use your brainpower to try and work out how to solve the puzzle, killing every killer in the house and getting to the escape without entering any of the boxes twice.

Who started the challenge?

The challenge was started by a TikTok user called @yaicha93, who posted it to TikTok on August 1st.

This TikTok user drew out the Escape The Murder House Challenge onto a piece of paper and filmed herself explaining the rules of the puzzle. The video has gained 1.2 million views and continues to go viral on the social media app.

She says:

“This is the Escape The Murder House Challenge. You defeat a killer when you enter their room. You must defeat every killer and escape out the escape route at the front of the house. Once you defeat a killer, that room is now an active crime scene, and you may not re-enter it. Here is one of my many attempts. But for some reason, I always seem to leave one killer out. Have fun and duet me with your attempts.”

Can you solve the puzzle?

Now it’s time for you to give the challenge a go. Get a pen and a piece of paper, draw out the grid and you’re ready to start.

And make sure you film it for TikTok!
