I've been a customer since the beginning. I love the all-in-one monthly boxes. I've collected every box released but until this year, I never completed any. Completing a box by myself seemed impossible so I never tried. lol But now I have monthly murder mystery nights with my friends and we have a huge collection to choose from so we're never bored. DMS boxes are a great way to spend a Saturday night with friends. Highly recommend DMS over all the other subscription boxes.
Thank you so much for the recommendation, Amanda! We really appreciate it and if you ever get stuck on anything that feels impossible to you, feel free to reach out on the Deadbolt Mystery Society Hint Group on Facebook or go to the Hint files located on our website.
Bought a 3-month subscription for my husband for Christmas.
He loves it.
Just went on and ordered a 6-month subscription.
Highly recommend for someone who likes escape rooms.
I came across DMS while searching for a decent puzzle mystery subscription box. It looked good so I ordered. One of the best decisions I have made. Each box is unique, subversive and challenging. With 35 boxes under my belt and counting, I have yet to loose interest, and doubt I ever will. Way to go DMS. Keep up the good work.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us, James! We really appreciate your enthusiasm and support!
Bought a sampling of one-time boxes. I loved my first box: The Spider! Thought i would work my way through them by order of difficulty according to their website. Did it on my own over a weekend and had an absolute blast! Working on The Last Resort, now. Would've liked to take some vacation time to work through these, but if I took too much time, how would I pay for them? Haha! Bought another set of one time boxes yesterday, and I will be subscribing for sure! These boxes have cool back stories. The puzzles are challenging, but not frustrating. And the customer service of the DMS staff is amazing! They are responsive and helpful. So glad I found this box!
I only found Deadbolt Mystery Society last month and completed my first box. I just wished I knew about this company sooner! I love the engaging storylines, props, and materials that come in the box. I also loved doing the Advent Calendar puzzles last month online. I am a new subscriber and I am doing my best to get all past boxes because I loved my first box so much. Looking forward to future boxes!
Thank you so much for the kind words, Jennifer. Don't forget to keep an eye on our social media pages, as we announce there whenever one of our past boxes is getting a reprint!
I look forward to these boxes every month. These are well made, well thought out and super fun. It's so great to have an activity I enjoy and have that time to myself!
Thank you for the awesome review, Andrea! We're so glad you were able to find a fun, new hobby in our games!
Was a fun family game! Really had us thinking hard and working as a team!! Highly loved and very well thought out!!
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, Joe! The boxes are definitely great for teambuilding, and we're glad you and your family enjoyed it so much!
We found DMS at a local bookstore and bought 8 boxes to get started. We signed up for the 6 month subscription after solving several of those boxes and purchasing 4 more. These are the best cases we have worked on as a family! If you like solving mysteries then these are perfect for you!
Thanks for the kind words, James! So glad you and your family are enjoying the mysteries!
This was such a fun activity. Makes you think and is great. We cant wait for next .months box. Would definitely recommend this
Thanks for sharing your experience with us, Dan! Our mysteries are definitely a great brain workout!
We are obsessed with the monthly mystery boxes!! They are so well thought out and designed. So much fun to do with family and friends. We can’t wait for the next months box to arrive. The ingenuity put into each mystery is great!, and having to solve other puzzles to get to an answer makes it that much more interesting!!
Love Love Love these!!
Thank you for the awesome review, Brenda! We really appreciate you detailing what makes DMS mysteries so special to you!
Great gift for that special someone. Gabriel Culiat highly recommends this for all
Thanks for the great recommendation, Gabriel! Speaking of special someones, definitely don't forget to check out our Valentine's Day themed mini mysteries, Second Chance at Love & Tunnel of Love!
This is a lot of fun! Not too overly difficult, but a nice level for all.
Thank you for the review, Ed! We always shoot for the perfect difficulty level and we're glad we hit the mark for you!
We love our mystery box. We do one each month for game night. We look forward to them each month.
Thanks for the taking the time to leave a review, Michelle! We love to here that people are using our mysteries to create fun game night experiences!
Overall we loved these! I gifted this mystery box to my mother-in-law's! They had so much fun but their schedules are too busy to keep up with a subscription like this! I will be looking into this company for future boxes!
Thanks for the review, Tree! We're so glad your mother-in-law enjoyed the mystery! If they still wanted to do a subscription, they can choose a monthly subscription and then go into their account and choose to skip the renewal for any months that they're too busy.
I started with single boxes and have enjoyed them so much I have just signed up for a yearly subscription. Can’t wait for my first box! I love the variety of the cases and enjoy how the stories are so in depth they jump from the page into my imagination. I highly recommend!
Thanks for the review, Melissa! We're so glad you decided to take the plunge and become a yearly subscriber. You won't be disappointed! :)
This was my first box of this kind ever, I purchased as a gift for my grandmother and I ended up sitting down with her to help "solve" it. I really enjoyed figuring out the clues and I pretty quickly could put the pieces together, there was only one instance where I had to look up a hint. Overall it was fun and I would purchase again to solve on my own.
Although I was satisfied with it... I had hoped for a more realistic detective-like experience that required some deep thought. The process felt kind of hollow up until the end when I had to consider personal information about the characters. I wish there had been more to read and digest about the people involved that provided clues and helped support the ending.
Deadbolt mystery society is AMAZING! The amount of detail they put in the storyline and evidence is incredible. Many times they provide "real" evidence, like a poker chip with a code on it, so you truly feel emersed in the world. The riddles and puzzles are a great challenge and they do provide hints for the more tricky ones.
Hi, Taylor! Thanks for taking the time out of your day to leave us this wonderful review. We aim to make each game as immersive as possible, and we're glad to know that we hit the mark for you!
DMS is hands down my favorite murder mystery box. Not only do they have intriguing storylines and amazing puzzles, they are second to none when it comes to their fans. They are completely interactive with fans and provide the best customer service. I look forward to by box every month and can’t wait to see what else DMS can come up with. Thank you, DMS!
Thanks for the awesome review, Kenley! We appreciate you taking the time to detail what makes DMS so great to you. We absolutely have the best fans in the world!
Me and my crew have done a ton of different murder mystery boxes. Deadbolt Mystery Society is by FAR our favorite. The plots are engaging, the puzzles are challenging without being ridiculously hard, and the items/characters are always interesting. Even better than that is the fact that their customer service is really second to none. Every single person I've interacted with on behalf of this company has been spectacular. Add that to more than fair pricing and prompt shipping? It's really a no Brainerd.
Thanks for the review, Nichole! Our customer service team works very hard to ensure that each and every customer has an amazing experience, and we are so lucky to have them! We appreciate you detailing all the other things about DMS that make it #1 for you.
My family and I have been doing these mysteries for years now and they’re always so much fun! Whether you do then as a group activity or on the weekends by yourself to pass the time, it won’t be time wasted.
Thank you for the recommendation, Alexandria! We love to hear that you and your family have been enjoying our mysteries for so long and are so grateful for our amazing customers!
I absolutely love these boxes. I've done other murder mystery boxes but DMS is by far the best! I look forward to receiving my subscription box every month and make sure to buy the ones that are not part of the subscriptions as well. To date, I am only missing two and hope that DMS will re-release them again. Keep up the amazing work DMS!!!!
Thank you very much for the kind words, Sabrina! We are so grateful for you taking the time out of your day to leave us a review.
Overall a great box. I have come across a couple older boxes recently that seem to have left out important clues or reasons for including certain items, but even when missing those items my Boyfriend and I can work through them and still have a lot of fun.
Love the mystery boxes- they do a great job with making sure the puzzles are challenging
Thanks for the review, Penny! If you haven't already, we would love to have you come join us in the Deadbolt Mystery Society Hint Group on Facebook. It's a great way to connect with our other detectives and get a little help with some of the more challenging puzzles!
Deadbolt not only has an amazing product with great puzzles, in-depth stories, and interactive components, but they have top notch customer service as well as being extremely interactive with their audience. Your not just buying a mystery box with Deadbolt Mystery Society, you are getting a full interactive experience! Screw the 5 star rating system, these people deserve the whole galaxy!!! They are amazing!
Thank you so much for the kind words, Apryl! Our customers are our top priority and we are glad to know it shows!
I have 16 different boxes and I love their customer service. They also do great on the creation of their storyline for each box.
Thanks for the review, Tabitha! Our customer service team works very hard to ensure that every customer is happy with their experience, and we're glad to know that we hit the mark for you.
