The Cabinet of Curiosities box features 2 puzzle box/escape room style games built into 1 box. Each of the 2 games come with an audio story telling experience. In order to complete each game you will need to listen along to an engaging story to learn about the background as well as listen for hidden clues to solve the puzzles on the box. Each of the 2 games covers a different subject in the world of dark folklore.


Due to the nature of the content a younger audience might not be appropriate for these games.

In order to play the audio you will need to access webpage from a computer or your phone.

Puzzle Box/Escape Room Game 1: The Bell Witch Hauntings
This game will center around the old Appalachian legend of the Bell Witch Hauntings. The hauntings took place in Northern Tennessee in the 1800's and terrorized one family for many years. To fully encapsulate the story and intensity of these hauntings we have created a truly creepy and engaging audio recording to go along with the game. Important information and clues will be built into the audio so you will need to listen along in order to solve the puzzles on the box.

Puzzle Box/Escape Room Game 2: The Huntsman
This game is inspired by several different pieces of old German folklore surrounding a horseman that beheads its victims. To unlock the mysteries of the box you will need to listen to an audio recording from an investigative reporter that has been tracking the Huntsman for her whole career. What she documents as she explores an old chest in an attic could help you solve the mysteries and puzzles built into the box.

Why did I create these games?

I have been designing and making puzzle boxes for the past 3+ years and I co-founded an escape room business (Escape Woods) 8 years ago. Out of the many games that I have designed this one is the one that I am most excited about because with this box I am incorporating a few new elements that I believe will take the game experience to a new level.

With the boxes that I have developed in the past I have worked hard to try to tell a story that goes along with the puzzle box game. But it is challenging to tell a full and engaging story with a box and paper. o, for this new box I am incorporating an audio story telling component. Furthermore, to give puzzle lovers more bang for their buck I have built 2 games into this 1 box. Each game will center around a different piece of dark folklore and will contain an engaging story that you will listen to in order to not only learn the story but the story will also include information that you will need to solve the puzzles.

Good but...

I wanted to give it 5 star but sadly it was missing 2 small little coins that was supposed to come with the box and I felt awkward after giving it to my husband as a gift for our anniversary. He needed those to coins to help solve a guess the map part and box puzzle. I was sad but I know things happen

A Nice Looking Puzzle, But...

I'm a massive fan of puzzles. I've played a considerable amount of both digital and physical versions over the years. Let's discuss briefly what my opinion is on this product.

The Pros:

This puzzle box is nice to look at and feels good to hold.
The clue pages are full color print.
The narrative is interesting and captivating.
The voice acting in the audio file is excellent and provides a spooky ambiance.

The Cons:

The puzzle box did have two areas with small physical damage. The material used (mdf) is brittle on some of the pieces.
There are areas that have an unfinished look and feel with residual fibers from the machine that was used (laser or cnc).
The Tennessee map that was included was misprinted. The print was canted and low. Which did result in making one of the puzzles more difficult to solve than the maker intended.
The token found inside is very lackluster. There are numerous (inexpensive) options to improve this item. Having this item be a keepsake or talisman would add to the excitement and experience.

Conclusion:

The best part about this puzzle box is the audio file. It was a unique approach that was well done. The price for the box is understandable for the amount of labor and materials that are used. The thought that went into the design makes for an enjoyable experience as you hold and look at The Cabinet of Curiosities. The overall style and experience this puzzle box attempts to provide is appealing. However, I find the puzzles themselves wanting. The satisfaction of solving a well made logic based puzzle seems to be missing. This is partially a symptom of one of the items not having the correct print. But, it is also the puzzles themselves. There was a plug and play theme that truly lacked the "eureka!" sensation we've all felt when solving a challenging, yet satisfying puzzle. Having said that, we need more puzzles in this world, not less. If you are a fan puzzles, you should try this one. It's unlikely to be your favorite, but there is plenty of good peppered in with the bad.
