Tried Marlowe's cat mystery box with a coupon from the website and it was great family time this last weekend. Packaging is very interesting and puzzles are very clever. We will be working on the mystery as we have time together and it will be a blast to see how thr story turns out. If you like mystery/detective boxes, this one is great fun.
This is done very well. I am ready to open box three. The story line in this series is excellent. I am impressed by the cleverness of folks who can create such an involved interactive, totally fun experience. Anyone liking Hunt a Killer and Empty Faces, will also like this.
I got this for myself (47), my husband (64) and our adult son (19). I really like it but my husband and son do not like it. I am still giving them 5 stars, though, because they have EXCELLENT customer service, the materials that come in the box are of very high quality and very immersive, and I since bought this and I, personally liked it. Hubby and son did not like the fact that it can be text heavy and relies on researching stuff online. You have to want the story line that goes along with your puzzles!They wound up waiting for me to look stuff up online and therefore became bored. I happened to like that part of it. They have done an amazing job creating the online components to go along with the box. The really nice thing is that they have one series that is only 2 boxes, so you could try that to see if you like it, and once you are hooked, you can move on to one of the longer series, which is what I've done. Oh, they also have a really great online group for when you get stuck on a puzzle or whatever. The hardest part is waiting a whole month for the next box.
