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 have done several different brands of mystery boxes and I currently subscribe to 4. I did my first Conundrum Box today and it was great. It might be my new favorite and I subscribed to the monthly box as soon as finished the Emerald Isle. The story is good. I really enjoyed being able to read backstory on the website. I loved the puzzles. Everyone’s brain works differently so it’s wonderful to have lots of different types of puzzles. Some I did quickly and others I had to use the hints. The hint system is set up so well. One hint will clue you in to which items in the box might be used for the puzzle. That was often enough for me and led to a few “duh, how did I not see that moments.” If that wasn’t enough of a hint there are several hints for each puzzle so you don’t have to use all of them...just a nudge. The materials and pictures were nice too. I didn’t use the Spotify playlist or the cocktails on this one but I will definitely add that in next time just to see what that adds. Overall this is a great box!!!
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!!!
