This was our first time with an escape the crate. Overall very fun, but our box was missing an envelope, which contained cards and a mirror to help solve some of the puzzles.

This was our least favorite one so far, we had a little trouble following the logic. Outlaw was AMAZING! This one was good.

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...

This is our second one and this was a bit frustrating. One of the envelopes said it opened with 4 numbers and it opened with two words. Another opened with 5 numbers and only needed 4. Because of this, we needed several hints to figure out what we already knew.
