Finders Seekers is a fun subscription box for anyone who loves puzzles, escape rooms, Sherlock Holmes, mysteries, or anything requiring a little brainpower.
As a subscriber (limited numbers can join each month), you are invited to join the Society of Seekers, a group of like-minded puzzle fiends who use their heads and a little bit of internet-search know-how to explore a city and solve a mystery each month.
Each month, a fun and mysterious package arrives with this cool logo.
Inside, you’ll find a welcome letter and checklist, plus all the clues you’ll need to solve the mystery.
All of the items are fun, engaging, and high-quality. It really feels like you landed in the middle of an Agatha Christie story.
I tore through this puzzle with my (bright, natch) 10-year-old, and we especially loved the onion-skin overlay for the map and the napkin and coaster clues.
Now, I admit, I was a little perplexed by the pile of clues and no direction to start; fortunately, my 10-year-old noticed that everything was lettered, and there seemed to be letters on the map. I won’t give anything else away! Finders Seekers invites you to join its Users Group on Facebook for clues and camraderie, but beware spoilers there!
The possibility of winning a prize is available to those who solve the puzzle ahead of deadline. It took my daughter and me about an hour and a half to figure this one out, and it was really fun! I loved that we got to do something together that required our brains and a little search-engine-fu.
This would be a TERRIFIC gift to any bright 10+ kid or teenager, or anyone who loves a good mystery each month. Homeschoolers would get a kick out of it, too. We can’t wait to see what’s happening in Australia next month!
