How difficult are your games?
The puzzles within our games are quite challenging. Many inexperienced players have enjoyed our games but often take more time and use more hints than more seasoned puzzle-solvers. Inexperienced players will also benefit from working in a group, since different players will find different puzzles easier. Our games have no time limit and come with an online hint system so that players of all experience levels can calibrate the game for themselves.
Do both parts come with my purchase?
Yes, a single purchase comes with a single game box that contains both parts to complete the entire storyline.
Is this a subscription?
No, this is not a subscription. It is a one-time purchase.
What do I need to play?
Besides the game, you need access to the internet to check your answers and get hints. The internet may also be useful for cracking some of the clues. Paper and a pencil will also be handy. You can play our games in a group or individually.
What is the recommended group size?
We recommend groups of 1-6 people, though groups larger than 6 have enjoyed playing as well! A larger group just means players will need to share more of the puzzles.
Can Puzzling Pursuits games be played remotely such as over Zoom?
Yes, many groups have played Puzzling Pursuits games remotely over a video conference such as Zoom. We recommend that each household buy their own copy of the game so that everyone is able to examine and manipulate the components easily. However, we've also had at least one group in the past play with one copy, taking photos and sharing them digitally ahead of time. It makes the gameplay a bit harder and is more time consuming to set-up, but it's a good option on a budget!
Can Puzzling Pursuits games be replayed?
Like most escape rooms or puzzle adventures, the game is fun when you don't know how to solve the puzzles, so it's typically played only once per person.
However, many players keep the materials in good condition (since none of the puzzles require destroying materials to solve them) to pass their game along to a friend or family member afterwards.
What ages are the games intended for?
We recommend ages 14 and older. While the material is appropriate for younger players, the puzzles are quite challenging. That said, players younger than 14 have also enjoyed playing our games, typically in a group that includes older players.
