Think Outside The Box
This evening you have decided to sit down, take a load off, and save the world.
+ What is The Conundrum Box?
We are a subscription adventure in a box game full of puzzles, clues, ciphers, and deep story driven narratives. Many of our adventures happen in a season, with an overall story arc linking each month’s box to an exciting climax at the end of the season. Each month you will receive a new adventure in a box, the first four seasons each year are connected by a larger overall narrative.
+ When will Season One begin?
Our first full season, the three box game Escape from Sleepy Hollow will start in October. All boxes before that point will be one box games. If you are looking to see what we have available without a subscription, you can find them HERE.
+ What do I get in each box?
Each box varies from month to month, but it is always filled with puzzles and materials to further your adventures. Below is a picture of one of our box’s contents to get an idea of what may be included in any given month.
+ Will everything I need be in the box?
While most of what you need is in the box, you will still need an internet connected device and probably some scratch paper. Additionally, you will want to hold on to all boxes of the current season, as there may be callback puzzles to previous material sent in earlier boxes.
+ Is this game re-playable?
Although some elements of a game may be “choose your own adventure” style, each box’s main mission is only playable by an individual once — or twice if you are the kind of person that wants to show off to your friends how smart you are ;) There is a repackaging list for each box so that the game can be played again, but some items in a box may be consumable depending on the game.
+ How long is a season?
Our seasons range from two months to six months depending on the adventures, we plan on most being three months long.
+ If a season is three boxes, do I have to wait for the third box to arrive before I can play?
No! Every box is a self contained adventure that shares a story-line with two other boxes. Think of it as a movie trilogy rather than one movie!
+ What are the different ways I can purchase Conundrum Box Adventures?
We are primarily a subscription service, with discounts if you sign up for multiple months at a time. Sometimes we may have reissues of older adventures, which we will sell directly by adventure on our online marketplace.
+ What age is this for?
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. We have an educational puzzle adventure for younger kids (8-14 years old) called Codename Conundrum that will be launching at the end of the year. These adventures teach different subjects while adding in the puzzle adventure element. While also a subscription box aimed at home use, interested teachers should contact us for a classroom discount.
+ Will this be hard? What happens if I can’t solve my adventure box?
We don’t just leave you with a box and say “solve it.” If you have difficulty with any part of the adventure, help is available on our website for each specific adventure. We gear the subscription adventures to be challenging enough that you spend at least an hour playing, while the seasonal / gift boxes are meant to be quicker and more casual in scope.
+ When is our adventure shipped?
If you are on the subscription plan, your monthly box will be shipped the first week of the month. Boxes from our back catalog bought individually (non-subscription) will ship within 7 days of purchase. (We try to ship them within 1 business day if possible)
+ I am coming in mid-season, will I get the first box(es) of the season?
Yes! Your subscription will begin with the first adventure box for that season. This means you may be one or two months behind the most current box, but your subscription will continue from there through its length. There is a cut-off date for each season, if you subscribe after that date, your first box will be the first adventure of the next season.
+ I missed season __, can I still get it?
We will have extra inventory or reissues from time to time that can be purchased on our online marketplace, but we cannot guarantee the back catalog’s availability.
+ Who is the Conundrum Box?
We are Team Conundrum - a group of escape room creators / owners, board game makers, puzzle enthusiasts, and educators. With over 800 escape games played between the creators, 15 designed and built escape games, and 15 years of game creation experience, we have a unique and dedicated perspective on the puzzle adventure genre that we know you will enjoy!
+ What if I do not like my box?
We really hope that that is not the case! Reach out to us and we can see if we can help you. However, due to the nature of the service we do not offer refunds. Feel free to cancel your subscription, and we will stop shipping you boxes once it has ended.
