Just wow! You don't often see so many details, such storyline and good (meaning original) puzzles in only one envelop for this price! Everything looks very neat and works well together. The playable audio for the stories is also very nice. Highly recommended for anyone who likes puzzles!
My wife and I are experienced puzzle solvers, so it was a bit easy for us, though still enjoyable. Will recommend highly for novice puzzle solvers.
Thank you for leaving the review! Indeed, the first game, The Lost Knowledge, is on the easier side. As the series progresses, the difficulty increases but also varies.
From feedback, we find that games 2 & 3 are more difficult (increasing in that order). Then game 4 takes it down to a more approachable level again, before games 5 & 6 ramping them up.
For experienced puzzlers, we hope you will stick with us for the other games because they do provide some interesting twists. :-)
So far, I have received 3 of the 6 games in this series and I can say without hesitation that these are the most challenging and the most fun puzzle games that I have played (we subscribe to three other games in this genre and the Enigma Fellowship games are far superior). In addition, the game curators have phenomenal customer service and have been incredibly helpful when I got this as a gift for a family member and the first shipment got stuck in transit (due to COVID). Even though the postage issue was not their fault, they went above and beyond to solve things for me. I couldn't recommend these games or the curators more!
Excellent attention to detail. The second half was quite harder than the first. A great evening challenge for a small team.
My wife and I really enjoyed this! It was fun and challenging and became quite a few fun afternoons. We have the second one just started. Can’t wait to get further into it!
The games by Enigma Fellowship are some of my absolute favourites. They have just the right amount of challenge. I find I get stuck every now and again but not for so long that it gets frustrating. The stories are engaging but feel quite light hearted. I find I choose these when I want some casual puzzling rather than an intense story. Each one I’ve completed so far has taken 2-3 hours to complete and has to be one of the least costly ones I’ve bought so far. Hands down it is the best value for money.
Another major selling point is the designers/owners. They are super friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Enigma Fellowship to anyone looking for a fun challenge.
Great product. I've enjoyed all of their games so far. The customer service is great. I highly recommend this subscription to anyone who enjoys an immersive game experience.
I recently played the first four games and i loved everything about them. An amazing story and fun puzzles merged together into one of the best experiences I had so far. Great background research, lovely voice acting and cool components – you can clearly see how much passion went into these games. I think the creators love making them as much as we love to play them. And you really get a lot for your money here, the envelopes are stuffed with all kind of things. It took me between 2.5 and 4.5 hours to solve each part. The hint system is good too, you always get the exact amount of help you need. I can fully recommend this for all experience levels. Can’t wait for the next parts.
This company makes absolutely phenomenal games! I'm obsessed with escape room and mystery solving games and Enigma Fellowship is definitely one of my most favorite subscriptions of all. The stories are always intriguing, there's lots of layered puzzles and you always learn something with every game that you play. The value of their games is unbeatable.
I've never come across another company that packs so much for such a great price into every game. I also love that they're conscience about the environment and that they use environmentally friendly materials. The customer service is the best in the business and they truly care about their customers. They take all feedback and use it to improve their games even more. I cannot recommend this company and their games enough. If you like puzzles and if you like mystery Enigma Fellowship will not disappoint.
Absolutely loved this game, so much fun! Played a little bit every night when we had time. Pace of the game is perfect and it has a really good narrative too. Can't wait to buy again!

Q: What ages is this appropriate for?Asked by Anuj S., October 2020
All our games are designed to be family friendly. One of the goals of The Enigma Fellowship is to encourage families and friends of all ages to work together. The puzzles and reading materials in our packages are suitable for player ages 10 and above. But with adult supervision even younger players can participate in solving our enigmas. We do encourage parents to take some discretion because they might deem some themes worthy of adult supervision. For example, the players might have to solve murder mysteries, battle monsters and encounter supernatural events in some storylines. We continuously endeavor to not make the content graphic or scary.
The packages are designed to be somewhat challenging for the average adult player. So if you feel that you are...
Q: How many people do you need to play this? Can 1 person play it alone?Asked by Anuj S., October 2020
Our recommended team size is between 2-4 players for the games. You can, of course, play with larger teams as well. These games are best played when everyone has access to the materials so you can discuss things and play it together. But you can always play alone as well since the game is not designed to hider your progress. In fact, if you feel that you get stuck, you can always use our web-based hints. Good luck solving the enigmas!
Q: I'd like to order this for a Christmas gift, but want to make sure the recipient doesn't receive the first shipment until after Christmas. Can I order now or should I wait till closer to Christmas?Asked by Kathryn M., November 2021
