Customer Questions (18)


Q: I’m a little confused. It says each season is 5 episodes long. So wouldn’t that be a 5 month subscription? Why is it only offered in 6 months? What do you get for the 6th shipment?Asked by Nicole Y., February 2023

A Killing Affair answered...February 2023

Cratejoy only does 3, 6, and 12-month subscriptions. In the sixth box, you would get the first episode of the next season. We are always willing once you place your order to refund the 6th box if you like. All you have to do is reach out to us, and we can take care of that for you. Let us know if you have any other questions.


Q: How many boxes do you have to order for the mystery to make sense? Like, can you solve a mystery with the first box, or do you need an entire season?Asked by Matthew C., December 2022

A Killing Affair answered...December 2022

Hello Matthew, For Lovely City Independence Day, you need all five episodes to solve the murder. In each episode, there is a new victim, and with each new victim, you eliminate suspects until the last episode, where you solve the murder. We do have Sin City boxes, where in each box, you solve a murder, but if you wish to continue, you can cause each box is, in a way, linked to solving a larger mystery. Reach back out if you have any other questions.


Q: Hello! Wanting to gift to my sister and her family for Xmas. Would I be able to get the first box to wrap and gift for Xmas Day and then have the other boxes sent to them? Asked by Veronnica H., December 2022

A Killing Affair answered...December 2022

You bet! Just let us know in notes when you place the purchase!


Q: I want to buy 3 mysteries at one time but the system is only placing one in my cart. I don't want anything to auto-renew right now, I want the 3 items ordered together today. How do I do that? Asked by Anne U., December 2022

A Killing Affair answered...December 2022

Hello Anne, You would buy a 3-month subscription, and we can mail it all at once and cancel the subscription as soon as we ship. If you are looking to ship to multiple people, we can accommodate that for you. Just message us the addresses and names. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

If I could leave more than 5 stars I would. I bought 1 season (5 months) for my husband as a Christmas gift. This box is incredibly high quality and well thought out. Even down to every detail I cannot believe how well done it is. Highly recommend!

I have or have had a subscription to pretty much every single mystery solving and escape room type of game available and A Killing Affair is my all time favorite! The creator is amazing and you can tell how much thought and care she puts into her products. Every single piece of evidence is top quality. Even the paper that's used for the documents is high quality. The stories are immersive, interesting, and keep me wanting more. I highly recommend this game to anyone who loves a good mystery or has an interest in detective work.
You will not be disappointed .

Like you are on a cop/detective show!

I recently finished the first season and had to order more. This is just so well done! You get a file folder with witness statements, a case report, and autopsy results for each victim, and there are little evidence bags. Over 5 boxes, the story develops, and you clear some suspects with each box. So much thought went into all of the details! I highly recommend this subscription.
Also, I may or may not have actually squealed after seeing the first letter addressed to Detective with my last name- probably not the best look for a woman in their mid-thirties but that is how much it tickled me....

Love It

So far, I love this box! I was really impressed that I even received a letter by mail from Lovely City P.D. That adds so much to the authenticity of detective work. I appreciate the added touches that make solving mysteries so fun.

Leaving a belated review as i think this is a pretty good subscription game. The people at a killing affair are pretty good at responding to requests and issues as the first one was to arrive at christmas. I asked for it to arrive in a plain package as i didnt want to spoil the surprise, and they helped me out, even though it was the week of. Same thing in another package. The box came with a blacklight that had a bad battery, so i let them know and they mailed me one out within the week.
As far as the game itself, its very immersive both in story and props. Websites, menus, handwritten notes, newspaper clippings. A lot of things to sort through with your friends and family to figure it out. I like that everything is interconnected and its very hands on when it comes to poring through the investigator notes and city maps for alibis etc. Well worth it to get everyone together and get the brains working!

Not only is this a great murder mystery box experience but the customer service is wonderful. Always same day response and usually in less than an hour. There are puzzles with these boxes but also susoects to investigate and eliminate and so I find it to be the most realistic investigative box out there. Love it!!
