Customer Questions (98)


Q: Can you play Escape the Crate more than once?Asked by Ashley E., April 2019

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

by Sharon J., April 2019

They provide instructions for how to "reset" the game and even re-print any materials in case you want to let other friends/family play.

by Adam K., May 2020


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

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: Are you shipping to Australia again? Asked by Kez M., August 2022

Escape the Crate answered...August 2022

Hello! We just began re-opening Australian shipping. If you have trouble joining from Australia, contact us at support at escapethecrategame dot com and we can help you through it if the system doesn’t allow you to join.


Q: I ordered a retired box and How long will it take to come to my house I live in Gainesville Georgia Asked by Kaden E., May 2022

Escape the Crate answered...May 2022

Hello! Retired boxes ship out within a week of being ordered (often MUCH sooner). We ship from Ohio, so typically it takes 2-3 days to get to Georgia depending upon the speed of the USPS. If you need the box by a certain day, contact us at support AT escapethecrategame DOT com and we will see what we can do to get the box out sooner.

I received the escape the Vikings box and my oldest daughter was solving the puzzles with me. They were relatively difficult and it was a lot of fun. There were two parts to this game and we only finished 1 part. Can’t wait to get started on the 2nd half. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves solving all kinds of puzzles. Also looking forward to getting new boxes in the future.

I had a great time playing through the Roswell Incident. I've played a lot of puzzle games so I found the puzzles on the easier side, but it was still a fun evening activity. Set-up was easy and I love how space is maximized for puzzles with printing on both sides of each paper, as well as within the box itself. I look forward to playing through more boxes!

It took us (three adults) about 3 hours to do "Escape the Gold Rush Robbery" and we all enjoyed ourselves, finding the puzzles pleasantly challenging but not frustrating.

Excellent escape-room subscription!

These games are so much fun - and I play solo. They are so creative - each one being so unique in terms of game play. Their hints are great - they don't give you the answers but gently nudge you in the right direction so you still get the thrill of figuring them out (with a little help!). The little tangible items that come along with the papers are a lot of fun, and really add dimension to the adventures. And they are very caring games, too - always providing any type or warnings or triggers that might come into their stories - which, in my opinion, is just a caring way to make sure their games are fun for absolutely everyone. My only complaint is I wish they came out EVERY month - not just bi-monthly!

Great Narrative, Fun Puzzles

Bought 2 of the retired Camelot game - 1 as a gift and 1 for us. We all enjoyed it. We've played Exit: The Game, Escape the Room, and Finders Seekers. Although we like elements of each one, this was by far our favorite for narrative strength and theme.
The puzzle difficulties ranged from easy to medium for a group with some experience, though there were some factors (don't want to say more so it doesn't ruin the story for anyone) that could make them more difficult. We didn't use any of the hints, but each puzzle had a layer of hints available.
Escape the Crate makes great use of game elements (and the box). Not to spoil any surprises, but I think almost every piece had 2+ uses during the course of the whole game, which was divided into 4 chapters so you could play in multiple sessions.
We're definitely going to be getting other puzzles from this company!

Great Escape Boxes!!

I received my first box, the Egyptian Adventure as a birthday gift and it was so much fun. We played with two friends so there were four of us, and it took us about 3 hours to do. It was nice that we were able to play at our own pace instead of being rushed with a timer, and the hint system was super helpful when we really got stuck!! Everything is super clear to set up, and the puzzles are a great range between easy and very challenging! We try not to actually write on the papers so we can regift them boxes, but it’s nice that the option to reprint some of the pages is available online.
I ended up subscribing soon after and now my sister and I do them primarily on our own. It still takes us about 2 to 3 hours to complete the boxes, but it makes for a great afternoon or evening activity for us! I even bought some single retired boxes to hold us over in between subscription months. So far we’ve finished the Jack the Ripper, Camelot, and Ancient Greece, and we plan on acquiring some more of the older ones too!

The overall entertainment value of this box was better than expected. Having done break out rooms in the past, I was expecting this to take around an hour. In reality, it took my husband and I two sessions around two hours each to work through the puzzles. I enjoyed the flexibility in solving the puzzles at your own pace. For two nights of entertainment/4 hours of fun, the value is worth the price.

These boxes are amazing! I've wanted a cheaper way to experience escape rooms at home for a while and these are the best solution I've found. The boxes each have fun and unique themes and are definitely challenging.
