Veep, “Oval Office”

If there’s one thing HBO does well, it’s creating an environment that’s rich in detail on your television screen. At South by Southwest this year, the network is giving attendees a real treat—HBO: The Escape, an activation that turned the famous sets of Veep, Silicon Valley and Game of Thrones into intricate escape rooms.

Silicon Valley, “The Incubator”

Upon entering each room, participants are given a set of clues and tasked with teaming together and solving the puzzle to “escape” that space in five minutes.

Game of Thrones, “Castle Black”

Each room is immaculately detailed.
