Customer Questions (3)


Q: My wife purchased a 1 month CONUNDRUM BOX subscription as a guest/no account and continues to receive monthly deliveries. How does she cancel her subscription?Asked by Daniel S., March 2022

The Conundrum Box answered...March 2022

Hello Daniel, all subscriptions bought through Cratejoy can be canceled by logging into your account with Cratejoy Marketplace then going to your profile. Click on the box you would like the cancel, and it walks you through it. If you bought it as a guest, there should be login information with the receipt email that they sent you--however, we (The Conundrum Box) don't have control over what Cratejoy Marketplace sends, so, as their customer, you may want to reach out to their support desk if you are having trouble logging in. I hope this helps!

I got the Conundrum Box as a fun activity and every family member who said they weren't interested couldn't help but get involved. The curated soundtrack and food/drinks made it extra special. I loved every second of it and would definitely recommend it.

This is the one you’re looking for!

We got our first box in a few weeks ago and kinda put it off- I wasn’t expecting much- I have done “real” escape rooms, we have gone sky diving and lots of “extreme” dates so what could this little box possibly have to offer?! Answer: More than you’d ever expect! This is so well put together and thought out. We sat down on the couch with some printer paper and after the first 20 minutes we were hooked! We turned the living room into a detective office and had an absolutely amazing time. This allowed us to really reconnect on levels that you don’t get to when you’re both working from home and parenting and going thru the motions of what we have called life for the past year or so of lockdowns and general world chaos. We got to really see and appreciate first hand so many reasons we fell in love- intelligence, cleverness and teamwork. Thank you to the creators for helping us have an amazing 11th anniversary! We woke up this morning with a different kinda mindset towards each other- one that you can not get from watching netflix together for the 700th night in a row. We cant wait for the next box- and knowing that even if the world shuts down again and we are here with our kiddo we have a date planned that nothing can take from us. I 100% recommend this for anyone- couples/best friends/coworkers whatever your partnership or team looks...

After subscribing to this box, I contacted the owners to see if they could ship something out quickly due to my husband recuperating from a procedure and needing to keep him occupied. I hate the first box within a few days which was just awesome!!
The box took us a bit as we figured out to pay closer attention to all aspects of the clues. We enjoyed this thoroughly and are looking forward to the upcoming boxes! Definitely an evening (or afternoon) of fun!!!

So glad I bought it

The family absolutely love these games, and they keep us entertained for hours. They came highly recommended and the people who run the company are quick to answer any questions we have had in the past. Altogether, a great product and well worth your time!

I seriously can not say enough good things about your boxes. Our autistic teen has had a tough year, and it's been virtually impossible to pry him off screen or get him to engage in anything remotely creative or challenging. We have signed up for a few subscription puzzle boxes but this one is in a league of its own; the days our son has spent working on a Conundrum Box have TRULY been the very best days of 2021.

We had a ton of fun!

Such a fun service! We zoomed with another couple for our whole subscription, and we absolutely loved it. The recipes were a great touch, we didn't use the music, but that is a nice idea too. When we sent an email for help with one of the games we got a response within an hour from the actual creators of the game. That was impressive. We totally recommend this subscription.

We had so much fun with this box. We had the Merlin legacy crate. Which was perfect because my daughter who is 12 just strarted watching the tv show. So this went over perfect with her. The puzzles were very tricky for us. The nice part was that every corresponding page on the website had clues and the answer if you got stuck. Everything was well laid out and easy to follow. They also provide you a link to a spotify playlist that goes with the theme and recipes for food and drinks. Overal, a great box. I would definitely recommend this box.
