TWO GAMES are in this box. One of them is MERRY and one of them is SCARY! In a family-friendly game, search the streets of Salem during trick-or-treat to see if you can solve the mystery of who is dressed as a witch and is causing mayhem. In the scary game, go back in time to Salem during the witch trials to prove the innocence of a condemned girl. You need to head into the woods to gather evidence and you may come face to face with a real witch in the process!
Order by October 31st to get this box!
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.
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.
Q: Can you ship to a PO Box? Asked by Tara B., September 2023
Yes we can! Just input the PO Box number along with the address!
Q: If I order a Gift box before the 31st of August and then order another Gift box in September will it be two different box themes?Asked by Bonnie M., August 2023
Hello! Yes, that is correct. If you order anytime between now and August 31st, the first box will be "Escape the Genie." If you order anytime between September 1st and October 31st, the first box will be "Escape the Witch Trials." If these are both going to the same person at the same address, it might be easier to order a 4 month (2 box) gift subscription in September. That would ensure that you will get 2 different boxes automatically sent 2 months apart.
Q: I have a family member who is completely sight impaired, but is an avid game enthusiast. Would listening to the Escape the Crate online videos help this person to be an active participant in the game?Asked by Barry W., August 2023
Hello! We have videos during the game which help to tell the story with voice actors playing roles and occasionally to add audio puzzles to a game. All of the text on our website that tells the story also has audio links to help read the text aloud while playing the game. However, each game does have many images that simply can't be converted to audio... ciphers, images with secret words, letters, maps, patterns, etc. Therefore some puzzles simply can't be translated to audio. Therefore, someone who is sight impaired would not be able to solve all of the puzzles in a game. If other players are playing with them to help describe some elements, they might be able...
I love the combination of online and physical clues from the box. Keeps you engaged, you can choose to challenge yourself with a timer or not, and it's all in good fun. Themes of the boxes just add to the fun. Great to do in a group or solo.
This is the best at home escape game. My family and I have completed four so far and love the videos and thought provoking puzzles. I am not a fan of the at home escape games that are just reading and solving. The Escape the Crate boxes have great puzzles and keep us interactive for awhile and the videos are great because we can all hear it instead of passing around clues and reading individually. Awesome and great time with the boxes.
Thank you so much for your detailed and honest review. We are super glad to hear that you enjoyed our games and how we laid them out! Heres to many more escapes!
All the best,
Was a lot of fun. Definitely some trickier puzzles and some easier ones. We didn't use a timer as we just wanted to enjoy and felt that was a great option to have. Will definitely get more!
Thanks for your review! We are so happy to hear that you had fun playing our Escape the Genie game! We hope you play again soon.
All the best,
This was a fun game and my wife and I enjoyed it very much. We love escape rooms and this is the best home version we have played. We have subscribed and look forward to the next game.
Thank you so much for your great review! So glad to have you on board as a subscriber and hope you enjoy many more escapes!
All the best,
Love these boxes. I've completed several and each one is so much fun. Great for a couple or solo. My only complaint is that they don't come out more often!
Thank you so much for the awesome review! We are thrilled to hear that you are enjoying our crates!
All the best,
OMG That was fun! I knew the story but the clues and items in the box made it fun and exciting to work through. I did not time it but had fun working through it and am looking forward to the next one! Thank you for helping keep my mind in the game!
Thank you so much for your review! Glad you had fun escaping the crate!
These boxes are so much fun! I have played 4 now - usually with a group of 2-4 people which seems like the right amount so that everyone can be a part of the puzzle solving. You need a laptop to play some audio and to enter clues and view hints. Definitely worth it for an hour of fun on a weekend. I also appreciate that the box can be "reset" so I can share it with someone else once I'm done.
Awesome! We are so glad to hear that you are enjoying the Escape the Crate experience. Thanks for the review!
These are great games I play them solo and had a good time. It pretty easy to understand and follow but it still challenging. Got nothing but good things to say. plan on buying more
Thank you so much for sharing your feedback! Wishing you many more happy escapes!
