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...
Not only are these games well-constructed and clever, there are cocktail recipes and playlists included for each pack! This series is obviously created by someone who actually likes playing puzzle games. Also, their responses to queries are prompt and useful.
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.
Fun, interactive and challenging box that allows you to solve puzzles and put your mind to use, go on adventures around the world and find out the answer to unsolved mysteries. Great for families!
I was looking through everything in the box (not opening anything vital yet) and had the thought that this is absolutely genius. I love stories and solving mysteries, this box promises to satisfy both.
This was a great, engaging and fun activity that my husband and I completed. We were missing a page and emailed to ask for it, we were sent the page within minutes of us emailing. Would recommend this for anyone.
Box had a high standard to live up to (avid Brain Chase fan). Products were cheaply made, not treasure or memento worthy. Game play, however, top notch. Appreciate the playlist and interactive gameplay with materials and computer. Kept two teens engaged and challenged. Which is itself high praise!
This is a very well curated box! The puzzles are great and you can tell a lot of thought has gone into this. The puzzles are hard but not too tough to figure out. Of course, the interactive online page allows you to get hints where you are stuck. Highly recommend this box!
I was planning on writing a three or four star review when we found that one of our letters was missing a key piece. I expected to have to wait for at least 24 hours before hearing back and getting the missing printout. BUT they got us the missing piece in 20 minutes and we were able to keep playing. This was super engaging and challenging. And honestly, I'm bummed that I cannot get more than one box a month because this will be date night for a while! Thank you so much!!! It's been monotonous with covid19 and trying to find date night ideas that are at home, but this took us to another world entirely. We had SO MUCH FUN!
