I wrote a previous 5-star review after doing my first box. I have to give an even more glowing review after having done over half a dozen.
Deadbolt Mystery Society is by far my husband and my favorite boxes (and we open 3-4 different mystery boxes each month). They are challenging and fun providing us lots of laughter and thought. We toss around what methodology is best to solve the case and we use logic to move from one puzzle to the next. It challenges our ability to decipher clues and codes.
I have cancer so going to actual escape rooms has become an impossibility, but these boxes allow me to have even more fun comfortably sitting at home by the computer with my husband. It usually takes us 2-3 hours to complete each one while in an actual escape room you only have one hour. Also, with Deadbolt Mystery boxes we don't have to compete with other people for the hands on experience to solve puzzles.
I would give them a 10 star review if I could. Don't hesitate to try one!
