The Gift

Subscriptions are taken from November 1 – November 30 at 6PM CST. Boxes ship during the first week of December.

As the holiday season approaches, the Valley Falls Police Department receives an early present: three dead bodies surrounded by toys and games. These “gifts” have been left by someone calling themselves The Tinkerer. Now, the killer has left a note at the Will Street Detective Agency claiming that more lives are on the line. Time is running out.

The Deadbolt Mystery Society is a monthly subscription box service for lovers of mystery and suspense.

With your subscription, a new mystery box filled with puzzles, evidence, and interviews will be delivered to your door. Each box is a standalone mystery that requires no additional boxes to complete.

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!

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.
