I am enjoying this subscription. Packages have a lot of material in them, and puzzles are well done. If you enjoy detective puzzle boxes this one is a fun one to try.
I got my third month and I'm fairly disappointed. I've enjoyed the first two puzzles, but this last one requires a cassette tape player. I'm not sure if you guys noticed, but it's 2019, and I don't have access to a tape deck, and honestly haven't in at least 5 years. Even a CD is hard to play these days, but when I can't even work the puzzle? What a let down :(
GMS sends out a monthly puzzle that is NEVER as straightforward as I think, and usually takes me a couple of days and more than one "aha!" moment to complete. I love how creative the various parts to these puzzles are, everything from a cassette tape to a coffee mug to mysterious phone numbers with cryptic answering machine messages. It's so much fun to have physical clues to manipulate, and that sets this puzzle subscription apart. I gave GMS as a gift to my daughters (and their husbands/partners), a friend and his wife, and my brother and his 14 year old son. All of them have had a blast working on it together and found it, as I have, interactive, challenging, a great bonding activity, and so much fun! If you're looking for a deviously clever monthly diversion, don't look any further -- GMS is the puzzle box you want! And it’s the perfect gift for that hard to buy for know-it-all-teen, game-loving Millennial, family gamenight aficionado, or sharp Baby Boomer.
