Q: What is the recommended age for this box?Asked by Anna E., March 2020

Hi Anna,

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: 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

The Conundrum Box answered...November 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!

I bought a season for my husband as a Christmas gift, and it was fantastic. For 3 months the gift kept coming. We took our time with the game and enjoyed the process. No only the game, but the customer service, and turn-around email response was excellent. Highly recommended!!! Your inner Private Detective will be so pleased.

We have played all of the games from these guys and they just keep getting better and better. Unlike a few other boxes we've played where the game play and storyline seem a bit disconnected, Conundrum does a great job of weaving the two together extremely well. I will note that there are usually more puzzles than the standard game, which I personally love. I'll also note, unlike one big name mystery game, each of these boxes has a definitive end, even if it shares an overarching storyline with later games. It's always frustrating to get to the end of a game and not realize it's the end because it is done part of a larger story and done poorly, thankfully there is none of that nonsense here. I would highly suggest giving this one a shot if you're looking for a fun mystery/escape room in a box style of game.

Great puzzles with a wonderful story

My wife and I love these boxes. We really enjoy almost all of the puzzles that come in them (obviously no one will love each and every puzzle), We love the fact that the website provides such great hints if we do ever get stuck on something, including the answer if you're really stuck - although if you're going through the hints, you'll likely be able to figure it out long before the solution hint. A few of the boxes are completely stand alone, but some of them within the series actually require items from previous boxes, which is also fun.

Having said all of that, the best part of the Conundrum Boxes, by far is the story that goes with each of them. Like most boxes, you enter in your answers on a website, but the website actually walks you through an enjoyable story as part of the puzzle solving. The stories are interesting, funny, and are a fantastic addition to the mystery boxes. Having tried other services, we find that the story that goes with the boxes is the primary reason we still subscribe to Conundrum over any of the others.

A really good escape room-like game!

This was a good time, we played Mardi Gras Mystery. We enjoyed the depth and content of the game. It was a little long, but the puzzles were great. We liked the extras features like the drink recipes and playlists. We are excited to play the next one!
