I love these boxes. I took several on vacation with me and even my 23 year daughter couldn’t help but get sucked in. The stories are good and entertaining. Some puzzles are easier and some are hard so it’s a good mix. The hint system is perfect. I love that it starts with a hint that is simply which items you will need for the puzzle. That was often enough to let me solve alone. The historical times and places make it fun too!
This company has really done a great job. I have played all their older boxes and they get better each time. The current boxes have a great flow to the storyline and puzzles. Very engrossing stories that are fun by themselves. There are many different types of puzzles so you are bound to find some you love and some that are harder. Escape the High Seas is my favorite so far!
I really enjoyed my first mystery from the Enigma Fellowship, the Lost Knowledge. It had a good story and the puzzles went in an order that made it easy to follow without feeling overwhelmed. I found some of the puzzles very challenging but some were easier which kept me from getting frustrated. The story was fun and even my middle school children enjoyed it. I am definitely subscribing for the year!!!
