The puzzles are clever and utilize different props and goodies. The stories are nice. The kit can be reset so share them with a friend. The game is a good length and I'm very happy with how much value I get for the price.

I thought this was a wonderful concept and so much fun. Unfortunately, it's a bit over the head of my 9-year-old. Will restart when he's older.

Escape Inferno

This was our 9th Escape the Crate to play and probably our favorite yet! I like how each box has a completely different theme and the puzzles continue to get stronger and stronger with each box. Keep up the good work

Confusing website - inferno

I found this to be confusing. I was never sure which puzzle I was supposed to be solving or if the envelope was already supposed to be opened. I had to use the 1st hint on each puzzle just to figure out which puzzle was next. I didn't like how I had to click on a link to enter a code, then hit the back button to go back to the instructions. Why not just enter the code on the same page?

We are so sorry that you found the number of objects that need to be unlocked in the game confusing. We try to mimic a real escape room in our games where there are many objects in the room, all of which are locked. Part of the fun, and frustration, of any escape room is figuring out which code unlocks which object, some of which can’t be unlocked until much later in the game. This sometimes takes some trial and error or keen observation of matching an answer you find to the required lock on the object. Using a website, we make you try the code for each object as you would on each padlock in an escape room. This has been a signature part of our games from the beginning. This can be tricky until you get the hang of it, but remember that the hints are always there to help and do not penalize you in any way. Have a great day!
Fantastic Family Fun!

My teen girls loved this -- and I did too! Lots of education mixed in with clever puzzles and a fully integrated experience, the box works with the website and mimics a real escape room for sure (we are huge escape room fans). Highly recommend, purchase with confidence, this one is a winner!

The hype is real!

We just finished playing Escape Inferno as a gift and it was a blast. We've played several other games like this on Cratejoy and they weren't really that impressive. They just felt like some objects thrown in a box with some poorly thought out puzzles in the mix too. This one felt just like an escape room, however. Basically, you have one hour to solve all of the puzzles in the box before you burn up in an imaginary fire. Each of the puzzles actually deals with the theme and fits together to make a story with multiple locations to check out and objects to unlock. We thought this would be easy, but it was most certainly not. We escaped with only 3 minutes left on the clock. There were probably 15 or so puzzles in the box and they were a good mixture, from math to logic to using physical objects to find codes. I also liked how it had a nice simple storyline we could all follow, which wasn't really that scary... it just felt like an adventure novel. There is a website where you can input codes in to check your answer and progress in the game. This website actually had audio clips of all of the reading, which was great for our group as we all could hear. I just can't say enough good things about this game. I think we might order a few of the old ones and start the story from the first box. By far the best box like this out there!

My family and I played The Abe Lincoln game. We loved the challenging puzzles and the historical elements.
