Questions

Q: Is this something that would be good for a group of 4-6 people? Not sure if it is better for just 2 people or can be adapted for a larger group. Asked by Megan H., May 2019

4 to 6 people could do it... Sometimes there is a bit of up front reading involved. We take turns reading / overacting those parts out loud (as well as the final solution) which is super fun... Then everyone could work on one of the many puzzles and report their findings to the group....
Buy one and try it!

We have done it with 3 and 4 people. I think more than 4 may be too many especially if everyone wants to be really involved. 3 was a great number, it also depends a little on the box and the skill level of who you are working with.

by Joslin H., May 2019

4-6 people could play just fine as most of the mysteries aren't linear.

by Wendy F., May 2019

I think you could do it with more than 2 people or a group. You could assign certain people to different puzzles (tasks, etc.). You may want to make copies of everything for all that are playing

Q: Do these have to be solved with other people or can just one person work on it? I'm thinking of giving this as a gift. Asked by Erica R., May 2019

You can certainly solve the mystery on your own but it also works great as a group (2-4 people) project.

WOW! Simply wow! We LOVED this. What an awesome date night game! Perfectly put together, lasted a couple of hours. We were NEVER bored and guessing until the very end. We ordered Sanitarium as a trial and we are for sure going to be monthly subscribers! Thanks for the fun!

I love these boxes. I tried it because I was not liking hunt a killer or empty faces. I started with one box at the start of June. I now have bought 6 boxes and became a monthly subscriber. I have also had quick feedback on any questions that I have had. I like that there are hint files and solution files in case you need a push in the right direction. I would give this company a try. I have loved all the boxes I have tried so far.

I've done many of these boxes and from my past experiences I have two favorites: this is one of them. It's so immersive, so unique and intriguing. Real websites, Facebook pages, emails, phone numbers. It's great. I love it so so much. Took us like five hours to complete. It was so great. The puzzles are perfectly puzzling. The information is so detailed. OMG it's the best.

I recently purchased Infected as a one time purchase box to see if I would like this subscription. After I completed the box I was addicted. I have to order the others and I started a monthly subscription. Each month is a stand alone mystery and there are fantastic puzzles to solve and decipher. The puzzles will make you think outside the box but not so hard to bring on frustration. I became engrossed in the storyline and genuinely wanted to solve the murder. I recommend this box 100 percent. I can't wait for other boxes to arrive!

I absolutely love these boxes! Each month is a new mystery and it's very escape room like but you actually get more of a storyline as you go through! Can't wait til next month!

If you're here reading this then you, like I was, are probably trying to sort out which subscription mystery box to sign up for among the many ones out there. I did the research you are most likely doing now and I settled on Deadbolt Mystery and I am glad I did. Deadbolt was everything I was looking for. Hopefully, my comments here will help you with your decision.

I've done three of their boxes so far (WANTED, COPYCAT, and INFECTED), so I thought I have seen enough of their content to have an informed review. I am doing their monthly subscription box. I have not ordered any of the one-off specialty boxes.

It's not that helpful to just say I love the box. Because you need to know what I was looking for. Let me explain that a bit.

I wanted something cooperative, of moderate difficulty (not too hard, not too easy), self-contained, professionally done with quality components, good writing, not a lot of hand-holding, and I wanted a mystery more than an escape room vibe. DMS delivered on all of those. And on top of that they are really professional, have a great online community and their shipping is timely and like clockwork. No waiting for boxes, they run like a well-oiled machine.

My brother and I are older now and live in different states. We both love puzzles and we wanted a fun way to keep in touch each month. We had tried Mysterious Package Company and...
