Lots of fun and varying difficulty of the different puzzles.
My wife and kids got me the subscription and we just got thru the first crate! It was so much fun. We needed a few of the hints and all but two minutes to solve it. We are already looking forward to the next one! Highly recommend it!
Escape on the High Seas was very fun. It is very easy to follow along with what is needed for each chapter. The written and recorded elements are useful. All of the pieces are high quality and well done. We have done in person escape rooms as well as boxed versions and we really enjoyed this one.
Box was fun. Would buy another. The online aspect could be expanded with interactive pages along the lines of a "pick your own adventure" story that leads down many paths. This would add replay ability. Could even compete against other teams in real time. A lot of fun already and you have just scratched the surface of what you can do.
Received escape the high seas as a gift! I will be ordering more we had a great time playing
I got this game as a gift and it was by far the best subscription I have ever received I just recently played the escape the ripper game and it was so much fun. It kept my family and I guessing and it was so much fun. If you like puzzles or just history in general you would like this. The creators but a lot of thought into the theme and into the research that goes into the time period. I decently will be getting more boxes from them.
Another fun box from escape the crate. The instructions are very clear and specific and it did take about 40 minutes for each of the 3 parts to this box. We enjoy the challenge and this is the closest you can get to a real escape room during the Covid 19 pandemic.
The pirate theme was fun and interesting. We did have to use a few hints where we got stuck a couple of times, but it is not too hard at all. Give it a try, it is fun!
The High Seas box was our first box, my wife, and I received it as a gift. We had so much fun, highly recommended.
Hours of fun!! My boyfriend and I (both late twenties) received this subscription as a gift from his mom and we love it. It's a great time to dig into puzzles while in lockdown. The cards are beautiful, great quality and lots of neat pieces. Well done! Can't wait for the next.
We had so much fun playing! This was far better than another "escape room box" we've tried. We could figure out most of the clues without big guesses, but it took a lot of thought to get to the right answers. Not too easy, and not too hard. Showing us how to repack the game for other players and giving us links to reprint pages we had written on was super classy, as well. We will share this with family members and I wouldn't be surprised if we all become subscribers! We can't wait to try another box! Thank you for a great experience.
We really enjoyed this game. We received it as a Christmas present and haven’t been able to go to Escape Rooms like normal, so we were looking forward to playing. For a home game, it was very well designed, with creative puzzles and the ability for us to go at our own pace.
Escape the Crate is awesome! We got it as a wedding gift and we play it as soon as it arrives!! We look forward to it coming and can't wait to play! We have played escape rooms in 5 countries and over 60 rooms and we really love escape the crate!
We are escape room veterans and I was a little skeptical that a box could deliver the goods. While there wasn't anywhere near the level of running around like the proverbial headless chickens, I was VERY impressed by the quality of the materials, the pace of the narrative, and the cleverness of the puzzles. They were varied both in terms of types and difficulty levels, allowing every participant to make valuable contributions and solutions. This is the perfect package for family game night, or for a training run for the usual Escape Room maniacs. Wonderful job, guys! We are already looking forward to the next one...
We loved it. It was difficult but we had a great time.
Super fun!! Was impressed with the website and length of the mystery. Took us a little over an hour; had an absolute blast doing a fun challenging escape room from our own home!!
Wow, this was so much fun! Lots of exciting adventures to uncover. The story was tied together very well, and the scattered clues around the pages were very fun to find. This was a perfect game to play with my family, especially during quarantine!
I'm an experienced "escaper". I've done many actual escape rooms, board game escape rooms of different brands, paper escape rooms, and more. So, trust me when I say this is great! It has strong theme that you feel the entire time you play. It feels like a real escape room. The quality of the items in the box is outstanding. Only good things to say! The website has nicely recorded parts of the story to listen to while playing. It's definitely worth the money, and P.S. these are CHALLENGING escapes! We always get out of real escape rooms but we cut it close with the crate!
Received Escape on the High Seas as a gift. Never have done anything like this before. Thoroughly enjoyed the working through the puzzles. Needed some hints at times, and they nudged us along as intended without giving away the answers. Well designed with good quality materials. The internet worked exactly as intended without having to do anything techie to get into the game or to play. Looking forward to the next box to arrive.
Awesome game! Love the set-up! Clues helped helped without giving away the answer right away. Great way to spend New Years!
I am a puzzle freak even though I suck at them! lol. But my husband and I have a lot of fun solving them on our no tv tuesdays. The highseas was our first box and we look forward to being doing the ice age park next! There are quite a few of them I would love to try so I am looking forward to solving them too!
This was so much Fun!! We played the 3 chapters over 2 nights. The last 2 on New Years Eve. Three of us played and each brought different skills to the puzzle and everyone was needed to solve. It is so exciting when you finally figure out a hard puzzle to get to the next step. Very well done with all the various cards and clues. Thank you! I can't wait for the next puzzle in two months.
My husband and I (late twenties) had a blast with the High Seas box. We completed each of the three chapters separately over a few weekends and it was so much fun to finally finish the story! If we were playing less casually, it probably would have taken us about 2 hours for the whole thing at once. Great fun and makes you think! A nice way to spend the evenings. Bravo for all the thought behind this.
This game is someone's well thought out passion project. A really smart and unique puzzle game for the price.
