"How about a drink to pass time, then? There's a lot of things we can do here."
— Junpei, after hearing the door is locked

The Rec Room is an escape room in Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma. It is searched by Team C: Carlos, Junpei Tenmyouji and Akane Kurashiki.


A well-stocked bar complements all manner of entertainments and amusements to prevent the setting in of boredom during the long hours. These include a jukebox, slot machine, roulette table, and craps table.


Carlos, Akane, and Junpei wake up in this room and their bracelets inform them it is 2029. When Carlos determines they are locked in, Junpei suggest they have a drink to pass the time. Carlos reveals personal information about himself and the three resolve to escape the room and survive.

Decision Game


A new game is announced: Roll three dice, and if they don't all show a one, everyone on C-Team will be gunned down. Akane notes there is a 1/216 chance of rolling all ones.

  • If the dice don't all land on one, Carlos suggests that C-Team hides behind the bar. C-Team is gunned down in spite of the shelter provided by the bar.
  • If the dice do all land on one, the door opens. Junpei, ecstatic to be alive, dances out of the room after a short celebratory monologue.

Instead of having the player re-attempt this possibly hundreds of times, the player should always roll three ones on their third re-attempt.
