We purchased a year's subscription of these boxes for my brother and sister-in-law as they are big escape room fans. We did the second box they received (the time traveling zoo one I believe) with them. For us, the first section was actually more challenging than the first, but I definitely didn't feel like they were too easy. There were times we needed those hints! It is a lot of back and forth between the computer and the crate, so be prepared to do this with a computer nearby. We had a lot of fun and I was impressed by the different items in the crate and how they were used. If you wanted to reuse the box, you would definitely have to print out new sheets as some of the items we marked up or ripped while we were playing. But it is possible to pass on to a friend if you wanted. Would for sure consider purchasing this again, either as a gift or for fun game nights.
