No Escape

Put a fun spin on the game with our No Escape rules—a simple but effective way to make sure everyone gets a turn.

  1. The youngest player gets to pick the first game and the first two players. Choose wisely!
  2. The winning player earns 1 point, picks the next game, and then hands over their Joy-Con controller to another player. The losing player must keep playing.
  3. The game ends when either everyone at the party gets a turn or when the set number of points is reached.

Keep the focus on fun!

Play No Escape as a family to settle bets, assign chores—even decide what’s for dinner.

Plus, you can set gaming guidelines for your kids with the free Nintendo Switch Parental Controls smartphone app.
