$50.00 $46.95


Escape from the Asylum is a thrilling escape room experience in the form of a co-operative board game. The game is divided into two parts, and each part is a collection of five stories. In each story, you assume a role of a character trying to escape the North Oaks asylum. To accomplish that, you will have to solve puzzles and make life-changing decisions. Reveal more and more of the backstory and watch the stories intertwine as you play.

This is a fully-cooperative game for 1-6 players and actually consists of 5 stories per part and 2 parts.  That is 10 stories total and each story will take an hour or more to play.  With 10+ hours of content and scalable from 1-6 players this "escape room" style game brings some truly unique elements to the genre and is intended for players aged 12 and up.

Sleeve Kings Sleeves FAQ

These FAQs can guide your decision on purchasing a set of our quality card sleeves.

EU & UK Orders:

If you are in the UK or EU and want to purchase card sleeves we cannot sell to you from this website.  Doing so would require us to remit VAT taxes to all EU countries and the UK and it just isn't practical for us to do that.  Instead you can order from and we will ship directly from our warehouse in the UK.  Please do not try to check out on any shipments to the EU or the UK from our website as we will only have to refund you for the order and ask you to order from our EU website.

What is the purpose of card sleeves? 

Card sleeves protect your cards from everyday wear and tear and accidental spills. Card sleeves can also protect your cards from environmental damage caused by sunlight and moisture.

Card sleeves support easy handling as well. If your cards are thin and flimsy, sleeves make shuffling easier. Sleeves also help distinguish your cards from everyone else's.

Do sleeves scratch cards? 

Card sleeves do not scratch cards if you follow instructions and confirm that small particles are not trapped in the sleeve prior to insertion.

How important is double sleeving? 

Double sleeving is not necessary but is highly recommended to provide extra protection against accidental spills.

How do you properly sleeve cards? 

First, inspect your card sleeves for any dust or dirt. Remove particles as necessary. Next, hold your card sleeve between your thumb and index finger and gently slide the back and front sides together to form a small pocket. Slide your card into the pocket and push down until your card is fully covered.

How do you flatten sleeves on cards? 

To prevent bubbling, select a sleeve that is very close to your card's exact size. To flatten your sleeved cards, weigh them down on a warm surface with several heavy books.

What are the best strategy board games for adults?

  • Settlers of Catan
  • Risk
  • Dominion
  • Pandemic
  • Terraforming Mars
  • Splendor

What games do adults like to play?
