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: How does the Rookie box differ from the Master box? Want fors my 9 year old granddaughter. She has done Escape the Box and loves it. Was looking for a monthly subscription as opposed to every otherAsked by Nancy S., October 2019

Hi Nancy,

Thanks for your question!

The Rookie Detective cases take approximately 1 hour to solve and the puzzles are designed for rookie (beginner) puzzle-solvers. I think they would be a great fit for your 9-year-old granddaughter!

The Master Detective cases take between 2-3 hours to complete and the puzzles are designed for more experienced puzzle-solvers.

I do work hard to make all of our cases family-friendly, so there's never any fear of bad language, excessive violence, or anything at all like that....

Q: Thank you for answering my prior question. How early would I need to order for this to be a Christmas gift or can I order now and not have it start until December?Asked by Shelly G., September 2019

Hi Shelly,

I'm happy to do my best to accommodate your gift-giving needs! As long as you order before the last day of November, we'll get your case shipped out on December 4th so that it arrives before Christmas.

Of course, if you want to order now and would prefer that your first shipment is delayed until December 4th, I'm happy to do that as well. Please feel free to send me an email once you've ordered and I'll be happy...

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!

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!

Love these mysteries to solve. I love these as you have to use all your brain power to get to the final answer. Love that you can get help when you are stuck. These can be done alone or with others. They can take no time to solve or longer if you get into a quandary! Like to take on great cases, this is the game for you. Arrived on time and in perfect shape. Love the extras like a fortune cookie or magic wand. So much fun. So much so, that I have ordered four of these and will finally get them all! Go for these and the price is right,too!

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!!
