This the review of Mystery Box Case 025 – THE HAUNTING.
The mystery comes in an envelope. The only things written on it are the Sleuth Kings P.O. box address and the case that you will be working on.
The epilogue is included and separated in another envelope.
To begin with your adventure, you need to login to their website and send Sullivan an email.
The files are neatly arranged in a white folder, with Sleuth Kings branding in front. All the files are organized inside the folder, they are even separated by paper clips.
Everything in my box!
The case objective is written in a card, and we will be working to find the name of the “ghost” and look for the “haunted” object.
It also lists the contents of the case file: investigation instructions, investigation report, clues, and more.
We also got a snuck-out letter from Celest St. Claire, telling us that we can also use her help.
The investigation instruction sheet names the client, the case you will be working on, and the whole situation.
I suggest you read them thoroughly to fully understand the case and also to know where to start the whole investigation.
For this case, we just need to know the name of the “ghost”, and also figure out the location of the “haunted” object.
There are also clue analysis, where each clue item’s use is being hinted or explained.
Here’s an interview with Renea Evans, the client that thinks her house is haunted.
She relayed the details about the supposed paranormal and terrifying happenings in her house.
After looking at all the materials, I sent Sullivan a letter to finally start the case.
The first clue we got is this Zombie 5K Fun Run registration form. The scribbles don’t really make sense, it seems like there are extra letters we need to eliminate to figure out the clue, or the message. It looks like a zombie had written them!
This torn up Magazine Page looks like it is from the activity section. For this one, I think we need to figure out the differences between the photos and make use of the random letters that can also be found on the images.
Here’s another page where we also need to spot the differences among the pictures and make use of the random letters scattered around them.
Our third clue is a Costume Party Invitation which is in black and white!
Again, there are writings on the left side of the card which and the sentences are ending with single letters K, I, and U. I wonder what the numbers meant as well.
The back of the card features a cute artwork of some popular Halloween characters! There are also symbols on top of the characters.
The Haunted House Flyer serves as our fourth clue. It also has the symbols similar to what’s written at the back of the Costume Party invitation.
Aside from the sentence on top, there are also random letters at the back of the flyer, and each letter has a washed-out image on them.
There’s also this board game named Ghost Chat, and it also includes a planchette that will be used to go to the letters to form words depending on the number you rolled from the dice.
Another item is a scratched wedding photo, which is more of a vandalized picture as the “ghost” wrote and drew stuff on it. It even gave a clue to arrange the drawings A-Z to know who it is!
Here’s also a sign language guide, where you can form the letters from A to Z just with a hand.
The back of the guide also has the weird symbols and some numbers written on it.
The creepiest clue that we got in the box is this ghost photo. Real or not, it certainly gave us the creeps! Just look at the lady in white and how she looks at you!
After solving the case and finding out who the “ghost” is, we can finally open the Epilogue envelope. Inside, we found a letter from Carol Flores and her picture. We just need to keep her picture and remember that she was alive for her to rest in peace.
This box is great for a Halloween adventure! It’s kind of creepy, especially the ghost photo, but it was really fun! It also gave us ideas on what to do for our Halloween party activities and games, thanks to the included Ghost Chat Board Game. Sleuth Kings is definitely a great box for those who love to solve mysteries, and you’ll even be joined by the great Sullivan King and Celest St. Claire, so you won’t get stuck and your adventure will go on smoothly!
