I wasn't sure how I would feel about this type of box--I haven't spent time doing puzzles or code breaking since elementary school, so I was worried the case and clues might be too hard. I was doing it myself, and did need to ask for some hints--which is actually pretty neat (you email to ask for the hints you need and an email pops back to help you and it's as if you're in a conversation with your detective "boss"). Turns out, it was challenging (some of it so challenging I definitely needed hints, but, again, I don't do this sort of thing regularly) the hints were enough to help me out and it took me a couple of hours to solve the case. I did it while I was putting my my toddlers to bed (they weren't sleepy) so I was interrupted a number of times, but I have to say, I'm THRILLED to find an activity that uses a part of my brain that I don't use regularly (I'm a toddler twin mom) and I'm even happier it's not a video game and I actually had to pull out a pen and paper to solve many of the clues. A really fun way to spend the evening and the puzzle-solving parts of my brain are coming back to life, which is awesome! Thank you! Very well done! I'd recommend it to anyone who's at all curious about it. I'm looking forward to the next case!
