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 ages is this geared toAsked by Jeanne B., August 2019
Hello! Our games are geared towards people of all ages, the themes are mostly family-friendly, with some adult ideas included. One example would be the drink recipe cards for our players over 21 (it is not required to make these drinks for the game, they are just “extras”). Most of the adventures are kid-friendly in theme, but some historic elements may be hard for younger children. One example of this is in our Anastasia: The Lost Princess box, where the aftermath of the Russian Revolution is examined as one of the story elements, and this includes the death of the Czar’s family, which younger kids might find challenging to understand. Speaking of puzzle difficulty, we are geared towards 12+ but there are some puzzles...
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.
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!
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.
The year is 1927 and the place is New Orleans. We are in the height of the Mardi Gras festival, but it is a crime from three years ago that still has the town talking. A missing King Cake Recipe has rumored to have been found and will be sold to the highest bidder on Fat Tuesday, which is only a day away. The problem is, the person in possession of this recipe is not the rightful owner. Can you determine the culprit and return Mademoiselle Anastasie Bedeau’s recipe
