You can definitely replay the game, but it comes out the same way each time.

Q: If I order this am I ordering a one time box or will this automatically set me on a recurring subscription? I am wanting to purchase just one box until we decide if this is something that works for us.Asked by Cynthia J., June 2019

Escape the Crate answered...June 2019

Hello!
No problem at all. Cratejoy has the option to purchase a gift subscription on their website. You can send a non-renewing gift to yourself for a certain number of boxes without worrying about renewing while you try it out. Enjoy the box!

Q: Hiya. I was wondering if you had any information on shipping costs to the UK? Many thanks. Asked by Nilima R., July 2019

Escape the Crate answered...July 2019

Hello!
We most certainly ship to the UK and our rate is $15.95 USD. Unfortunately due to the size and the weight of our boxes, this is the best rate available while shipping to Europe. Thanks and have a great week!

Q: can this be played with 1 person? or how many do you need?Asked by Shan B., July 2019

Escape the Crate answered...July 2019

Hello!
We recommend our games for 2-4 players, however they can be played in groups as large as 6 comfortably.... as long as everyone is able to sit closely together around a table to see everything. They also can most certainly be played solo, unlike most escape rooms. We have hints for each puzzle to help push you along the way if you play by yourself, but since our website runs the game, none of the puzzles are spoiled by playing solo. Happy escapes!

If you want to have a great activity to do where you solve puzzles and work together - this is really a lot of fun. We started out planning to do it within an hour - two adults and 3 teens. We chose expert level because we think we are really smart. 3 hours later we solved it. You can definitely do this in under an hour because there are hints all along the way so you don’t have to ever stay stuck. This was such fun. We can’t wait for our next crate!!!

My husband and I decided to subscribe to Escape The Crate. We received the Murder in The Forgotten Tomb and we escaped within 2 hours 20 minutes (it’s definitely not impressive! 🤣) but we sure had lots of fun with the puzzles and codes. We love going to escape rooms and this crate gave us the same experience as of those physical ones. Can’t wait for the next one! Highly recommended!

I should have done this review a long time ago, but sadly I am a very forgetful person (great for replaying games like this, not so much for remembering to do a review). I have subscribed to ETC from almost the beginning, and went back to buy the first two boxes I missed to ensure I had the whole collection. As of this posting, I have played every one, but the Mothman (its to my right, taunting me, but I have to wait until I am with my mom for Thanksgiving, or she'd never forgive me).

First, and most important, if you like puzzles, escape rooms, challenges, creativity etc, this is the box for you.

I have always had an obsession with all the above to the point where I have completed every Escape Room in my city (mid-size so about 20 at this point) and this box has all the fun, and challenge, without the running around and pressure of time (unless you put the pressure on yourself or run to get another drink). So I apologize for the lengthy review but its something I would be picky about, so here goes:

Storyline - Each box is a standalone mission, you can pick up in the middle and be fine. They do tie into each other in a lose way so you "feel" a timeline, but in no means do you need a previous or future box to complete the mission. All the storylines are from different periods in history,...

Bought this as a whim and thought I would give it a shot. It was very well done. Good story, unique puzzles, a nice hint system to help keep me in check, and the box itself was a part of the game. I like how you can reset the game afterwards and pass it off to friends.

Just finished playing a box at a friend's place and all I can say is WOW! It was just like an actual escape room. There were a lot of puzzles to do, which was a good thing and I liked how we could stop playing for a bit and come back in later. There also were buttons to push for the computer to read things aloud as we played, which was good because it was hard to hear some people reading too quickly. I just signed up myself for the next one!

I bought this crate not because it was an escape room... I actually bought it for the subject matter. I live near the town where the Mothman is said to visit and I have studied this for years. When I saw that someone had created a box about the Mothman, I had to buy it. This little box is amazing! It covered a whole bunch of information but it made it feel like a cohesive game. All of the puzzles fit together and nothing felt out of place. I also love how this game actually had a section at the end the explains fact from fiction. Amazing product and I highly recommend.

I got this for my family (2 parents and 2 middle schoolers) for Christmas. We are two crates in and we love it. There is a learning curve to remember to reference the clues on the computer and just understanding how the games are run, but we have had some great nights and I came on to extend our subscription. Best Christmas gift ever!
