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!
That's awesome! We love hearing about quality date night time. Thank you for the review and for being a subscriber! I am sure Nurse Edgarton would be appreciative of your efforts :-)
I can’t say enough about how much I love the deadbolt mystery boxes! My sister bought me 3 of them for my birthday last year. I ended up buying myself three more boxes as well as a subscription. Fun for the family, with friends, or even to do on your own. No regrets with these at all!! Looking forward to more boxes in the future.
Thank your sister for us for getting you hooked on our mystery boxes! So glad to hear you are enjoying them. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on The Deadbolt Mystery Society. We really appreciate it!
We absolutely love being a part of the Deadbolt Mystery Society! The puzzles are challenging but solve able, the story lines are great and so much fun! This is the perfect stay-in date night for parents or anyone who isn’t into the bar scene. We have almost all of the individual purchase ones that you can possibly buy and I have signed up for a subscription because I just can’t get enough.
Erin, we are thrilled to hear how much you are enjoying the mysteries! Thank you for your support and awesome review :-)
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...
Thanks a million for your detailed review of The Deadbolt Mystery Society! We do our best to create intriguing stories and challenging puzzles with each of our subscription boxes. We are glad you are enjoying them and appreciate you taking the time to share your experiences!
I am new to mystery box subscriptions and have loved every minute of the ones I ordered from Deadbolt Mystery Society. I signed up for 3 months but ended up ordering 4 of the one-time order boxes as well so I wouldn't have to wait for the monthly ones. They're creative and thoughtful. The puzzles are not overly challenging or overly simple. I very much enjoy the feeling of stretching my mind to guess the method needed to solve each puzzle and then the feeling of successfully finding the answer. I've recommended these to several friends already and am giving them as gifts for Christmas this year. I appreciate the affordability of the boxes. Thank you, Deadbolt Mystery Society!

We are so glad to hear you two enjoyed it Sarah! Thanks for letting us know and taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate you!
This is my first one. The packaging was fantastic. I haven't completed it yet. I was worried that it would be too difficult to solve, but so far it's perfect for me!
Welcome to the Deadbolt Mystery Society, Scott! So glad you have joined the Will Street Detective Agency! I know with your help, they will close this case in no time! Be sure to check out the Deadbolt Mystery Society Hint Group on Facebook to collaborate with other sleuths such as yourself! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate it!
These boxes are a blast. My husband and I really enjoy spending time together and working through the clues. We used this as our date night in time. He thinks of things I don't and I think of things he doesn't so we made a great time. Would totally recommend this to anyone!
You two make a great detective team! Thank you for the recommendation Bobbi! We appreciate it :-)
I wrote a previous 5-star review after doing my first box. I have to give an even more glowing review after having done over half a dozen.
Deadbolt Mystery Society is by far my husband and my favorite boxes (and we open 3-4 different mystery boxes each month). They are challenging and fun providing us lots of laughter and thought. We toss around what methodology is best to solve the case and we use logic to move from one puzzle to the next. It challenges our ability to decipher clues and codes.
I have cancer so going to actual escape rooms has become an impossibility, but these boxes allow me to have even more fun comfortably sitting at home by the computer with my husband. It usually takes us 2-3 hours to complete each one while in an actual escape room you only have one hour. Also, with Deadbolt Mystery boxes we don't have to compete with other people for the hands on experience to solve puzzles.
I would give them a 10 star review if I could. Don't hesitate to try one!
