We loved how it used both of our skill sets for different puzzles. The use of the time period was awesome, and the aesthetic and quality of materials was great. Not having a time limit was also a plus. Can't wait to play more. Keep up the good work!
Some puzzles were really difficult, great to play with a large group of people (4-5), very fun
Love the puzzles! Challenging but doable. we like the variety of puzzle types, some take longer than others, but it is still lots of fun. Our family loved both series! We think you can have another box when Reager escapes!! Hint hint!
Can't wait for more games!
We didn't realize how long the whole journey would take! We really liked how challenging it was at times and the length of the whole story and how it all connected, Having the multiple parts helped when we couldn't dedicate more time the night we were playing. There were some parts we felt we were experts in and others took a little help, but we really enjoyed the whole series.
We had a blast figuring out the puzzles
Outstanding, all three Blackbrim/Reager games were perfect. My husband and I enjoyed every minute and will absolutely look into more, if not all, of your games!
While some of the puzzles were extremely challenging I enjoyed figuring them out. It was very fun chasing the villain and trying to solve the cases. The hints were helpful when I got stuck and nudged me in the right direction. I look forward to doing another set of games.
Such an entertaining game. It is a joy to play a game that make you use your mind. Kept the adults thinking and let the grandkids use their imaginations (a couple of time they even came up with the answer when us adult were overthinking). I have purchased all three games in this series and will be looking for my next adventure soon. I recommend it highly.
This had some really unique and rather challenging puzzles that I greatly enjoyed. I liked how I always knew what to tackle next -- there was plenty of clarity on where to focus my efforts, provided both by the sequential set of envelopes and good telegraphing via the story elements.
We’ve been huge fans of Puzzling Pursuits from their first puzzle after a friend recommended it to us. Since then, we have played nearly all of their releases and have yet to be disappointed. Origins & Ends was no exception! The cute portfolio/briefcase folders is a neat aesthetic choice. The quality of the puzzles themselves are solvable but tough enough to stump us for a few hours. They’re satisfying without being frustrating. Highly recommend people give this box (and really the whole series) a shot!
Loved the website for clues when we got stuck. Puzzles were challenging.
Loved following the story line through from the previous in the series!
Love these games- just hard enough to challenge me without getting frustrated. A great way to spend an evening. I tend to do these by myself but I could see it would be fun to collaborate with friends over a glass of wine.
My husband and I absolutely loved these games! We played all three within 2 days. They are each challenging and intriguing. Awesome games!
My sister and my mom and I played this as a pre Christmas activity and ran right through all three of the trilogy and already have plans to play another one next time we’re all together. Great fun
This last one was a bit more challenging, but we made it. Had a great time working through it with my daughters and granddaughter. We've already ordered the first of the La Familglia set and are looking forward to doing it over Christmas. It's become a wonderful new holiday tradition for us.
This one was a little too hard for us. My puzzling comrades surrendered and I had to use the hints to finish. Puzzles from other companies are ridiculously easy, so we do love the challenge from Puzzling Pursuits, but we don’t like to have to use so many hints to get ahead.
Great fun, best puzzles available.
I love it so much! We looked forward to solving each part during family holidays. Started last Thanksgiving, then Christmas, and finally Thanksgiving again.
We love solving the puzzles together as a family and with friends.
We love your games, and hope you keep making more to give us more hours of enjoyment!
We love Real Escape Games, so I bought these on a whim at a convention. We had a lot of fun! The clues online helped and I loved how they were set up to avoid possible spoilers. Hope more come out soon. I'd keep buying them!
We played all three games and had a blast! Good amount of challenge and several hours of entertainment!
Puzzling Pursuits is my favorite escape room in a box. The puzzles are challenging and I like that they are not computer based.
Enjoyed it very much
We have only completed the first half of the game. It got us scratching our heads like none did before! Thank you!
My wife and I loved it, working together we each figured out things the other didn't see. Each of the three games in the series took us about 5-6 hours, and they were all fun and rewarding. We finished with a real sense of accomplishment. We would definitely recommend these to friends and family.
Loved the puzzles, some were very challenging, and clues were needed. But the experience was enjoyable.
We have thoroughly enjoyed the Blackbrim series - probably the best games of this genre that we have played (others are Unlock, Exit and Finders Seekers). This was the most fun game yet - the best of the Blackbrim triology in our opinion (we have not yet started on La Famiglia).
We played as a team of three and took about 5.5 hours, with different members contributing their respective strengths to the variety of puzzles encountered. That variety is definitely part of the fun - math, logic, words and a little bit of literature. The puzzles were about the right level of difficulty. Several times we were on the verge of giving up but each time we managed to pull out the answer without resorting to any hints (a bit deal as far as we are concerned!).
Well done! We are looking forward to La Famiglia and hoping for more to follow!
You rock. Thank you.
My friends and I love the puzzling pursuits games. We have played all three black brim games and both of the Chicago games as well. Please continue making new adventures as we love the style, presentation and interactive gameplay of puzzling pursuits!!!!
All your games are exceptional!!! We enjoy playing!!! Thanks so much...
Love everything about this game and series! Cannot wait for the 3rd game for La familia! <3
I enjoyed this third installment of the Blackbrim trilogy. The puzzles are challenging, but solvable. I have completed part one, and an looking forward to part two. Maybe I'll meet Reager before the end.
It's a great game. Keeps our minds working. Looking forward to the next...
