Q: Can you purchase past boxes?Asked by Lynnette N., April 2020
Yes, you can purchase them from our Cratejoy store or from our website.
Yes, you can, on their website.
Q: The description says "choose your own adventure." Does this mean you can you replay the game with a different ending depending on choices made during the game?Asked by Cecily M., October 2019
Within our current boxes to this point, the choose your own adventure parts
will only change some of the story outcomes, and which puzzles you may
play. It does not make the complete game re-playable. We are looking to add
more elements like this to eventually get games to a point where you may be
able to play it more than once.
Cecily! This was such an amazing feature to this box! In my experience the choices I got to make really shaped the narrative of the unique story that was told through my decisions. I’m not too sure if it changes the path of puzzles but my and team and I actually sat around discussing the pros and cons of each decision before making it was so much fun!
Q: Is it possible to purchase the full series in one order?Asked by Kelly K., October 2020
Hi Kelly, there may be a couple of answers to that question, so it might be easiest to contact us directly to tell us what you are looking for. The whole subscription has had 15 games up until this point, and we only sell the previous games as retired boxes on our website. We do have separate series that are sold throughout the year, such as the upcoming Kingdom of the Sirens series that starts with the November box. These could be bought in entirety with a three-month subscription purchase, but would still arrive one box at a time as all Cratejoy subscriptions bought on the marketplace do.
This is the best escape room box I’ve played. I like how they include a sound track and recipes and such. It’s a fun evening and their website works well for hints and such.
My grandpa (86 years old) and my uncle (58 years old) live together thanks to my uncle being his primary caretaker. Due to covid, its just been the two of them. They have the basics of tech (literally just a TV) to entertain them. My uncle thankfully has a phone he can use to call the rest of the family, but that's largely all he uses it for. Bare basics. They've been driving each other crazy!
To help things, I started doing research and founds this box. I ordered and it sent/arrived roughly about a week after I started the subscription. Oh the excitement of my uncle/gpa when they received this was amazing! Something they've kept busy for hours trying to solve the mystery (and with both their memories a bit on the faded side, they struggled but in a good way). My uncle was excited to try the recipe that came with it (due to covid, he's become a bit more of an adventurous cook) and they turned it into a theme night between the two of them. We participated over a zoom call when they got stuck (since they don't have internet access and clues were on the website) and it was a big hit! My father's super happy with me too for finding this little treasure to keep his dad and bro busy. Give's him a break LOL (bonus points there).
My favorite part about these is that the themes are relatable to even my grandpa. If...
My family has completed four of these boxes thus far. All of them so far have been appropriate for my 8 year old to play along (though he couldn’t solve the problems all by himself). Other game companies are too scary and dark for him, but these have been great! There are multiple hints for each puzzle, so if you get stuck, you can start with a small hint. If you are really stuck, you can use multiple hints. The storylines are fun and well thought out. The extras - music playlists, as well as food and drink recipes - are a great bonus! This is a great adventure for a family, a couple, or just on your own. Keep up the great work!
This is my first subscription to an escape room box, and I am thrilled with it. I tried one of a different series with a friend, and while enjoyable, I felt I could have been challenged a bit more. After reading a variety of reviews, I decided to give the Conundrum Box a try. My 10 year old and I finished the box, not with a great time, but really enjoyed the adventure. There were some puzzles that were a little beyond her but many she could help with that kept her engaged. The puzzles were challenging but had logical solutions. There is a hint system which lets you determine how much help you need without just giving the answer away. The storyline was really interesting and enhanced the game’s atmosphere. Overall, we’re really glad we took the plunge with this crate. Shipping was quick.
I love this subscription box, it is exactly what I was looking for and i love the little envelops and all the little details they put into it and being able to use the website for clues is also so interactive . LOVE THIS BOX
Love you guys! I plan on resubscribing when I can!! I just have to save money since jobs are scarce right now! These are great for date nights (minus my husband being a puzzle solving hog)!!!
Thanks Susan! One of these days we will make one that is a competition, and then you can just have your own puzzles to compete against him! :)
We started this over the weekend. Great family fun!!!
Absolutely love everything about this escape box. Thrilling themes, challenging and non-repetitive puzzles, easy-to-navigate hints, and wonderful extras (especially the scene-setting Spotify list). I’ve enjoyed some of these more than physical escape rooms. One of the absolute favorite things I do during quarantine. Take the plunge and buy a year’s worth, like I did!
This is a great mystery box! The stories are interesting and fun. The puzzles are varied in both type and difficulty and are well thought out and clever. The props included in the boxes are also really well done, immersing you in the story while adding extra fun to solving the puzzles and mystery. The inclusion of a playlist and recipes in each box is genius and further adds to the fun and immersion. Plus, their customer service is outstanding-easy to communicate with, very helpful and responsive. I highly recommend The Conundrum Box!
We initially ordered one box just to try it, and didn't realize it came as a subscription. When our second box came, we were so pleasantly surprised and excited- and have been subscribers now for months! My boyfriend and I have really enjoyed playing each game, solving the puzzles (even though sometimes they are really hard!), and we especially love that each one comes with unique themed dinner recipes, drink ideas, and a playlist! We have loved them so much, that we even ordered boxes for our friends!
