Sneak Peek

Master Detective Case 030: Black Magic

Mina Yen, a Magician's Assistant, was murdered on stage during a performance. Although it's clear that the illusion was sabotaged, the police aren't sure who is responsible. Sullivan has been hired to clear the lead suspect's name, but he's not convinced that the man is innocent. If he can't find evidence that will help put the real murderer away - and fast - he's afraid it's only a matter of time before they kill again.

Questions

Q: Do you need the Internet to solve the cases?Asked by Zayani M., June 2019

Hi Zayani,

Since you work with the detective via email, you do need an Internet connection as well as an email account. Some cases also include websites that you'll have to visit. That said, you will never need to use Google or any other web resource that isn't a part of the case.

Q: Is each month a case that can be solved without the next box? There is another subscription that is similar and you have to get 6 boxes to be able to solve the case.Asked by Shelly G., September 2019

Hi Shelly,

That's a great question - thank you for asking!

All of our cases are stand-alone, so you'll get a new, independent mystery to solve each month.

Q: I have a few questions. 1) do you ship to canada? 2) if so, how much is shipping? 3) if I want to send this as a gift, would I sign up as the subscriber or would account be in name of gift recipientAsked by Alexis S., January 2020

Hi Alexis,

Thanks for reaching out! Unfortunately, we're only able to ship within the US.

If you'd like to purchase a gift for someone with a US mailing address, you can sign up as the subscriber and input your recipient's shipping address. The subscription account is only used for billing and does not impact the mystery experience in any way.

Thanks!

Q: One more...are the rookie detective kits based on the same story as the master detective kits, but with fewer puzzles? We have an 11yo and 8yo who enjoy these challenges. Which to get?Asked by Chris M., December 2019

Hi Chris,

That's a great question - thank you!

The Rookie Detective cases offer new stories that are different from the Master Detective cases.

I think the Rookie Detective cases would be a great fit for your 11 year old and 8 year old! They are designed to take around an hour or so to work through and all of the puzzles (except for the final one) can be solved independently of each other, which means they can work on separate puzzles if...

My daughter, Zoey, and I love these boxes from Sleuth King! She wants to be a K9 Police Officer/Detective and these cases are right up her alley! We have a blast trying to figure out the clues. She can't wait for the next box to come!

My husband and I wanted an activity to do with our fourteen year old son. He loved and we loved it!! It was so much fun figure it out the clues and email the detective. The clues were challenging but not to the point of frustration. It took us two days to solve and we are excitedly waiting for our next case!

Just received my second box. I can’t tell you how fun these are. My husband and I love working through these. They challenge both of us. We will take breaks and then one of us will shout I think I know what to do. Really good bonding time for us.

Found them on FB. Started out with the FREE mystery, then purchased some archived cases and was immediately hooked! I love the uniqueness of Sleuth Kings, their whole concept is very different from the other companies. It's fun "working" with Sullivan to solve the cases, I feel like a real gumshoe. The stories are interesting, the puzzles vary in type and level of challenge, the clues/props are well done, high quality. It's easy to get helpful hints and customer service is outstanding! I also like that you can choose to subscribe to full or mini cases (or both!). I highly recommend Sleuth Kings!

It's taken me too long to write a review, since I've been subscribed for so long now, but this is my favorite subscription box by far! I always have a great time trying to solve each month's case with family and friends, and the "interactive" element with Sullivan adds a fun immersive twist to the experience. Cases could probably be solved alone, but it's a lot of fun to work with others. I really like that some cases have callbacks to previously encountered characters or events, and that the puzzles and clues are always fresh and different. Sometimes the difficulty of the puzzles can vary from month to month, but there's a good hint system built into the box, and the team behind Sleuth Kings is very helpful and responsive. I was missing something in a box once and the issue was solved quickly and professionally. I also appreciate that if you're on a month-by-month plan you can skip a renewal if needed without otherwise adjusting your subscription. Overall, a fantastic experience that you should try if given the chance!!

Sleuth Kings is our absolute favorite subscription box. We look forward to long brunches where we forget all about the food and work to solve a case. It's creative, challenging and engaging. We appreciate that when we struggle, help from Sullivan is just an email away. So much fun!

I just completed Case 024,"Framed", which was the third of three cases given to me as a birthday gift. I am completely hooked! The cases are interesting, the clues are fun , the props that come with the cases are cute, and the puzzles are clever. With the added extra of being able to receive help from "Sullivan King" if I get stuck, I have really enjoyed solving these cases. I get so engrossed that hours will pass as I delve into the clues. I have even purchased cases from the "archives" because I didn't want to wait a month for the next case, and I just signed up for another three month subscription! If you are a mystery buff, amateur crime solver, or just love puzzles, this is the ticket!
