Sleuth Kings Mystery Subscription Box Review

A new trend began to get popular within the past few years. More & more prime-time shows on television are a crime based “who done it”.  Escape room themed restaurants & bars began flooding the market and have become a great tool for company team building events and couples night out. It seems as though everyone loves a good mystery to solve, so it’s no surprise that monthly interactive mysteries would become popular as well.

Sleuth Kings

When we were contacted by Sleuth Kings to review their monthly interactive mysteries, I was excited to do it. Sleuth Kings is a company out of Dayton, OH that offers a subscription for $24.95 a month with a new mystery to solve every month. You sign up one time on the Sleuth Kings website & you’ll receive your case file in the mail in a few days.  When your case file arrives, it will contain everything you need to try to solve the case in a manilla folder.  You will also be assigned to a detective named Sullivan King and his email address.  The email address is the only way you will communicate with the detective.  If you find that you need any help or just another perspective on the case, you just send an email to the Sullivan King with “HELP ME” in the body of the message & he will email you back within minutes with his thoughts.  He will continue to give you his thoughts each and every time that you reach out to him until the case is solved. Some cases are easier than others, as some cases have more information than others.

Once you have solved your case, you’ll receive a thank-you letter with a small token of appreciation from the client.  Starting with the December 2017 case, you’ll also receive an update from Sullivan regarding the investigation into his missing father, Isaac.  BONUS: After you crack four cases, you will receive a FREE bonus case that revolves around the hunt for Sullivan King’s missing father.

Overall, this is a fun, interactive experience and each case is interesting to try to solve. For me, there was only one drawback and that was TIME.  I have 3 children who participate in many activities year around.  It was hard finding time to sit down & try to think through the cases.  It was great to have a resource available to email to give a new perspective.  Otherwise, this is a great way to exercise your brain, take a break from the television shows & get some real adult interaction.  For anyone who ever wanted to be a detective or work in the investigation field, this fun, interactive experience is for you!
