My wife loves escape rooms. With the attack of the 'Rona, and having a toddler around, escape rooms are tough to make time for. Originally, I signed up for a three month subscription. After playing through the first box, we quickly upped it to a year long subscription, and have bought almost every available previous box.
We love the puzzles, and how incremental the hint system is. We look forward to the boxes arrival every month.
We also love how responsive the creators of the box have been when we have had questions.
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!
We love doing these boxes! It is the third mystery box subscription we have tried, and we like it the best! It is challenging without being discouraging....a few of the puzzles in the other boxes we tried didn't even make sense AFTER we were told the solution. If you are an experienced mystery gamer, do the advanced version that some puzzles offer. We haven't taken advantage of the play list OR the food suggestions while doing each box, but plan to on our next one - to really make an event out of it! Thanks, Conundrum Box folks!
BEST puzzle box EVER!!! And, I've subscribed to a BUNCH. I was so surprised and delighted to see that it comes with a playlist and recipes for dinner, dessert and drinks. I am having a total blast playing my first box and had to stop and leave a review...it's that good ;-) I am finding it to be a great game on my own but could easily share it with the hubby, too. Now, I am regretting buying it bi-monthly instead of monthly...LOL
This is a fun family activity! We enjoyed all the puzzles and the hints were nice :) There was a mixture of difficulty levels which worked great. Our 9 yr old enjoyed doing this as well. If you are playing with younger kids they may get bored with the story, but us adults enjoyed it :)
After further inspection the communication issue was not the sellers fault. They never received my first message and the second one didn't go to my inbox. The issue was resolved quickly and the seller was very polite and helpful.
Hello Teran, I think there may be a misunderstanding here. Please check your spam folders. We replied back to the one email we got from you within 24 hours and had applied the refund you requested at that time (there should be a second email confirming this as well). Please consider changing your review. Thank you and have a nice day!
be aware that the Conumdrum box is shipped as is - it is not packaged in a shipping box. The label is pasted right on the box and when I tried to remove it, it peeled away information that was on the box. The person the gift is
for picks up the mail so the game is not a surprise and it was raining so the box got wet.
be careful if you wanted this for a gift
i have not opened it yet so cannot review product
Hello Mary, We feel as if this review was given in an unreasonable amount of time. Your first email to us was four hours before this review, and in that short period of time, we did not have time to reply to your concern. (I am replying just minutes after you wrote this review, so not even half the workday has gone by yet.) We are a small family-owned business of two people, and although we are usually pretty fast about replying to all communication (as noted by many of our reviews), under four hours would be quick for even much larger companies with full-time customer support staff. I wish you would have waited for our reply since I think this is...
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!!!
I had heard many times about the another box and I was skeptical I'm trying it because one case spanned over several boxes. So I went on a search for a box that was one case per box and came across conundrum box. I was very happy with the Box. My daughter and I daughter had a great time solving it. I even adapted it to Virtual play to be able to play on Zoom with my mother and sister. I can't wait until the next box.
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.
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!
We had a great time playing this box! I'm living with my sister and BIL and we have been plowing through puzzle rooms in a box since stay at home started. We've tried them from at least four different publishers and this one is on par with our other favorite brand. We do it with the three of us and the puzzles were a good difficulty level for our skills. I can't recall if the game page had a way to reprint consumables but I'd love that option when possible. This box is on the more expensive side and it makes it easier to justify if we can pass it on to a friend after (and maybe get them hooked too!) ;)
Thank you Emily!
I am glad you liked the game! Your review made me realize that we did not put up the file for that consumable puzzle in Emerald Isle, so I will have it up by tonight! You will be able to find it on the extras page. Just in case you did not see it, there is a reset list on that page as well, and it explains how to "reset" the other consumable in this game. Again, thank you for the wonderful review, and have a great day!
Shipping was fast and the experience was amazing! My husband and I used it as a Saturday stay-home date. We really enjoyed storyline and the puzzles. Highly recommend !
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.
My favorite subscription box! Love the unique storylines, puzzles, ciphers, tasks, everything! So much fun!
Great ciphers and attention to detail. I also bought the special boxes for Christmas and Valentines which were so much fun for the family. I also had a question and got a quick reply. Great customer service.
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.
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!
