Murder Mystery in a Box has pioneered a brand new form of immersive entertainment: a monthly subscription service that challenges you to solve a murder mystery delivered to your door in a mysterious package. Our mysteries are designed to be enjoyed by solo investigators working alone, by couples, or in small groups. Most can be solved within two to four hours depending on skill level and focus. Our mysteries are designed by bestselling author Christopher Forrest who has created award-winning mysteries in partnership with some of the world's biggest media companies including as 21st Century Fox and mega-publisher Penguin Random House.
The physical contents of each mystery box vary, but past boxes have included items such as a skeleton key, letters from a serial killer, FBI profiles, maps, crime scene photographs, newspaper, gothic necklace, interviews, forensic trace evidence, poker chip, police reports, champagne flute, raven feather, keychain, matchbook, autopsy report, prescription bottle, pocket watch, cemetery dirt, journal, vintage candle, antique button, and much more.
Each monthly mystery is designed to be enjoyed and solved without any knowledge of our prior mysteries. However, all of our mysteries are set in the same fictional town with recurring characters, locations and storylines. Over time you will begin to uncover the dark secrets that tie all of our mysteries together. About 90% of people who try one of our mysteries decide to stay for more.
Each month you'll receive a new mystery. Each mystery is only $ 35, plus a flat rate for shipping. You are free, however, to send us any extra money that you have just lying around and don't really need. We promise to give it a good home. We ship our mysteries only to mailing addresses within the United States. We recommend that you purchase a second home in the U.S. so that you don't miss out on any mystery boxes.
Can I get my first murder mystery box in time for my birthday? Or my nephew's bar mitzvah? Or my dog's retirement party? Or Nanna's funeral? The short answer is maybe, but maybe not. We are a subscription box company, not a store. We ship once per month so that all of our members receive the same new mystery at right about the same time. Each new mystery is a limited edition that is only available once. We don't guarantee delivery by a particular date, but we do guarantee that you'll receive a compelling and fun new murder mystery box once a month. Fair enough?
