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 :-)
After completing my first box (the 2020 June box “Behind the Wall“) I became an instant fan of the Deadbolt Mystery Society. I went on to learn more about the company and their previous boxes and I just continued to fall in love. I began my quest to solve all of their boxes! Rich story and smart intuitive puzzles make for such a fun and unique experience. The quality of the box and its content is top notch. From the moment you start reading the brief you are woven into an experience, not just a game. It was easily one of the coolest things I have done this year. Definitely worth a try! They sell single boxes as well if you want to try it all out before subscribing.
We are so happy you are enjoying our boxes... subscriptions and one time boxes! Thank you for sharing you experience with us!
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 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!
A friend sent me Framed as a first box. My partner and I did it to get some time off-screen, and it was a great adventure. Now we are subscribers and are working on another box with our friend. We Zoom, spend a couple of hours figuring things out (mostly together, but also separately and then share), and have some laughs. We take our time, so the box is a really good value (each box takes us about 4 hours, spread out over a week or two). The materials are high-quality, from the plot to the props. We did our first box twice! Highly recommend!
We are so happy you are enjoying your mysteries!
I bought this box on as when November was transitioning to December. I wouldve liked it if i couldve gotten this box before Christmas but hey, 1 day too late is better than like 1 week too late. This box looks interesting, however I was originally bought this box to get the Framed theme but The Spider def does look interesting to play. Tbh, i dont hate this subscription, Im only going to done one and done as i only got this as a gift for my uncle
Hope you're all doing fine in these challenging times!
I love my DeadBolt Mystery Society boxes, I've bought 19 of them in a short period of time, and have enjoyed every box I've played until now.
Keep up the great work,
Thank you for sharing. We are so happy you are enjoying our mysteries!
I am only able to really rate customer service and shipping - as I have not received this! I purchased this on 11/18 for a Christmas gift. It shipped on 12/4. On 12/14 I got a request to review it which prompted me to check the tracking. It seemed the package was stuck somewhere since 12/7. Now it is 12/24 and no box, so no Christmas gift for my sister. This company's customer service is quite disappointing as they have not responded to any of my requests for help. A company with good customer service would have re shipped the box so that I had it for Christmas. Very disappointed. I hope that this box arrives and that we do not have issue with the next two boxes. I do not recommend- the other three crates I ordered on crate joy have excellent customer service. Fast shipping and quick response to questions and issues. Go with one of those escape room crates.
These are so fun and challenging for our family! We love the creative touches in each box, some of the fun surprises - tiny cards, a blow up globe, music to play, - so many fun details that add to the experience! We will likely extend our subscription, we have loved these so much!
I absolutely love The Deadbolt Mystery Society! I’ve played 5 of their boxes so far and have enjoyed every one of them. They stories and puzzles are play with friends and family, or even solo.
This is the best mystery box out there. I recommend it to anyone that likes solving crimes.
