We design and publish solve-a-mystery games. Our games are immersive - you are a character in the story! You will be a researcher for the Society of Curiosities.
In each game, grandmaster Aldora Pennywig will partner you with a team on the ground - you will solve puzzles, inspect unique artifacts, study ancient documents, and lead your team to a lost treasure!
We offer a quarterly subscription, as well as standalone mystery-in-a-box games and online solve-a-mystery games which you can play right away .—
Our games are challenging!
For our digital games, we recommend ages 12+.
For mystery-in-a-box games and our quarterly subscription, we recommend ages 14+ for play.
Younger players, accompanied by an adult can participate in the game and have a blast, but some of the challenges might be too difficult.—
Our digital games are perfect for remote play. You only need to purchase a single copy of the game for a group of 1 to 4 players and the entire group can log into the account to play together.
Although our physical solve-a-mystery games and our quarterly subscription can be played remotely, all players must have a physical copy of the game. You can contact us if you'd like to synchronize your shipping schedule with a friend who's also a member.—
For our digital games: you can play right away! You will receive an activation code by email as soon as you order.
For our other games and members of our quarterly subscription, your game will ship within three business days of your order.—
Every game has a list of hints that you can access through your account. Hints are always free and unlimited so you'll never be stuck if you don't want to.
We take great care in breaking down the hints into small increments, so the hints nudge you in the right direction rather that just give you the solution. Of course, the final solution for each puzzle or challenge is also included in the hints.—
Our games are designed for one to four players. If you have multiple players, extra computers and phones can make play more enjoyable. We’ve even seen players order two kits so they can play together remotely - great idea!—
