Upcoming Box

The Inheritance

Coming in Feb 2021

*Customers who subscribe 1/1/2021 through 1/31/2021 at 6PM CST will receive this box

Summary: The McClains are one of the oldest and richest families in Valley Falls. So when the current patriarch of the family, Edison McClain, asks for your help and is willing to make it worth your time, how can you say no? Edison was planning on naming his heir and the next head of the family. So he called together all of the McClains and proposed a game as a last test to see the worthiness of those he deemed had potential. But someone in the family had other ideas. During the family get-together, the McClain’s oldest and most prized possession, a medallion bearing the household’s coat of arms, was stolen. This 500-year-old family heirloom is believed by the family to be the reason for their wealth and success throughout the years. Without the medallion Edison can’t name his heir, and he fears the family will fall into ruin. Will you be able to find the thief and the medallion? Can you recover The Inheritance?

Society Reviews

WOW! Simply wow! We LOVED this. What an awesome date night game! Perfectly put together, lasted a couple of hours. We were NEVER bored and guessing until the very end. We ordered Sanitarium as a trial and we are for sure going to be monthly subscribers! Thanks for the fun!

You will love it!

I love these boxes. I tried it because I was not liking hunt a killer or empty faces. I started with one box at the start of June. I now have bought 6 boxes and became a monthly subscriber. I have also had quick feedback on any questions that I have had. I like that there are hint files and solution files in case you need a push in the right direction. I would give this company a try. I have loved all the boxes I have tried so far.

Wonderful Mystery Experience

I’ve done many of these boxes and from my past experiences I have two favorites: this is one of them. It’s so immersive, so unique and intriguing. Real websites, Facebook pages, emails, phone numbers. It’s great. I love it so so much. Took us like five hours to complete. It was so great. The puzzles are perfectly puzzling. The information is so detailed. OMG it’s the best.

Should you buy? YES YES YES

I absolutely love these boxes! Each month is a new mystery and it’s very escape room like but you actually get more of a storyline as you go through! Can’t wait til next month!
