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: What is the recommended age for this box?Asked by Anna E., March 2020
The Conundrum Box is designed for the family, but when it is children playing alone, the difficulty level is designed for about 12 years and older.
Q: I am purchasing as a gift. I can commandeer the box but I don't want any emails sent until after 12/25/2020. If I use my email address, can that be changed after Christmas. Please advise.Asked by Karen B., November 2020
Yes, use your own email address only when checking out, and then after Christmas, you may log into your account or send us an email to change it.
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.
I love these boxes. I took several on vacation with me and even my 23 year daughter couldn’t help but get sucked in. The stories are good and entertaining. Some puzzles are easier and some are hard so it’s a good mix. The hint system is perfect. I love that it starts with a hint that is simply which items you will need for the puzzle. That was often enough to let me solve alone. The historical times and places make it fun too!
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...
One of the best I have done. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I seriously can not say enough good things about your boxes. Our autistic teen has had a tough year, and it's been virtually impossible to pry him off screen or get him to engage in anything remotely creative or challenging. We have signed up for a few subscription puzzle boxes but this one is in a league of its own; the days our son has spent working on a Conundrum Box have TRULY been the very best days of 2021.
We had so much fun with this box. We had the Merlin legacy crate. Which was perfect because my daughter who is 12 just strarted watching the tv show. So this went over perfect with her. The puzzles were very tricky for us. The nice part was that every corresponding page on the website had clues and the answer if you got stuck. Everything was well laid out and easy to follow. They also provide you a link to a spotify playlist that goes with the theme and recipes for food and drinks. Overal, a great box. I would definitely recommend this box.
I meant to order a 3-month gift subscription but selected the regular subscription because I wanted to receive the first box to personally give as a gift. Contacted the seller and received email from seller that he's unable to convert from a regular to a gift subscription. However, he would cancel the active subscription and go ahead and send as a gift. All seems well.
Four months later, I get a charge on my card. Sent seller several emails, and still have yet to receive a response.
Account shows boxes as delivered. However, had to relocate due to burst pipes from winter storm, so I'm not even sure where the last box(es) are.
I wanted to try a few boxes for myself, but after this experience, I've decided to hold off for now.
Could you let us know how you attempted to contact us? We do not have an email from you since a change of address request back in December (The change of address was to an address for another person, so perhaps they received the boxes you are looking for?). Since then you canceled the subscription after the renewal and we were informed of a charge dispute for the renewal, but we don't have any email contact directly from you. We would love to help solve this problem, please reach out to us at our email directly (Cratejoy will not let us post it here, but you can find it on our website under contact). We sent you an email after...
I thought this box was really fun for a nice night of something different. The puzzles were entertaining and thought provoking without being extremely difficult. The overall puzzle theme (vikings) was unique for me, which was great given the number of these types of boxes I've done. There were a few issues with spelling errors and in one case one of the puzzle's answers was off by one number, which we only figured out by revealing all the clues. Other than that though, it was a creative and different date night activity. I would recommend it for those looking for medium difficulty puzzles to fill an evening.
Low quality- looks like it’s made is someone’s garage. Lots of typos. Some of the puzzles are very poorly thought out. Wouldn’t buy again.
Hello Kami, Thank you for your feedback; we are always looking to improve. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience, and we understand that our games are not for everyone. We are a small operation, but we put a lot of labor into this business. We have most materials in our games professionally printed, but we do have hand-made items in some games. If we miss a typo here or there, we correct them as soon as we find them and support the fixing of any errors in our games as soon as we find out about them. Even with a playtesting team of a couple dozen, we can still miss something from time to time....
Just finished our second box, Nottinghill Jail, my mom and I did it together and I won’t give away any secrets but there was one new twist/clue placement that was a super surprise. I’ve done these types of boxes for a few years and this was a first! Thanks for changing it up a bit!
