It was different to do an escape room instead of a scavenger hunt and we enjoyed it. The task with grape juice didn’t work for us but we still had fun trying.
So much fun!
I purchased the Detective Party Game for my son's 10th birthday party. There were 13 kids ranging in age from 7 to 10 and they all had a blast solving the riddles to crack the code! The only thing I would improve on that is purely cosmetic is that the red and orange clues/border colours weren't typical shades of red or orange (more of a dark maroon and a mustardy yellow than red and orange) so the colour-coordinated envelopes I made to hold the clues weren't as easy to identify which clue they went with but we made it work. Other than that, some of the clues were trickier than I had expected but that was good as it kept them busy for longer. I would definitely use these party games again in the future. Thanks!
I get games every year for Christmas. My kids love it and it keeps them busy for a couple of hours.
Amazing my twins will be so excited
Case of the Mystery Box
This was my favorite game yet that we've purchased. (I've previously purchased about 5 games). We love escape rooms and I set it up similarly. I also tweaked 2 of the clues to make it more interesting. For the purple clue (invisible ink) we've done before. I find it messy and obvious...the kids often can see the baking soda without the juice. So I used a mirror and stencils and they had pieces of the word eleven written on the paper backwards and on the mirror with mirror marker they had the missing parts of the letters to line up to read the word. I love this trick. I would prefer a version like this made by you because it was tricky to do but I think you could do it by sending the two copies - one to stencil or copy onto the mirror. The other change was on the gold/brown clue. Instead of writing the number 3 on the bottom of the shoe in visible pen, I used one of the kids spy pens that has ink which glows under black light. I also hid some clues in a lockable kit (most first aid kits have 2 zippers that can be locked together.) I hid the key and this was an additional clue that made it more 'escape room' in nature. Loved it.
Halloween party fun!
I have purchased several games and my family has enjoyed them all. This Halloween treasure hunt was my latest purchase and the kids had a blast at our party. Currently looking to add one for Christmas party.
Purchase as expected
Everything according to explanations.
LOVED IT! WE took it on our vacation and everyone had a blast.

Detective Party Game - Case of the Mystery Box!
Our printable kids / teens (ages 10-16) detective party kit makes it easy-peasy to create your own detective mystery party game. It is a lot like an at home teen / kids Escape Room game, except instead of trying to escape the room they are trying to get the code to unlock the " mystery box" full of goodies / prizes. The game itself has 8 different challenges that once all solved will lead players to discover the four digit code they need open the lock on the mystery box.
