This the review of Mystery Box Case 030 BLACK MAGIC.
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.
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 evidence to implicate the killer.
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. We can use her help in solving this case by taking a look at the information on her website.
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.
In this case, we just need to know the killer’s identity and where we can find evidence to incriminate them.
There are also clue analysis, where each clue item’s use is hinted or explained.
One of the clues is this The Magician’s Jamboree poster. It comes with random letters and some of them even have large spaces apart. Maybe something goes in the spaces like another letter or character.
Dillon the Vampire’s instruction sheet is our second clue. Aside from the written words rabbit, dove, and hat, there are also numbers following each word.
The love letter to Magnus serves as our third clue. It has the same heart symbols as of what’s in the heart cards on a deck. Also, the letter has some random characters, and at the bottom, there are a series of numbers and it says we shouldn’t miss them!
Our fourth clue is the Magic and Fables flyer. It has boxes with symbols that are similar to the ones drawn on clue number 3.
They also included a police report that lists the victims and suspects.
We also got the Performance schedule for the Magician’s Jamboree. The cover design is the same as what’s in our first clue.
The back of the booklet presented to us the sponsors for the Magic show, and it includes some familiar brands!
The schedule sheet shows that the Magician’s Jamboree will happen in 3 stages, and each performance will take an hour. It also explains what the acts are about at the bottom part.
We also got 4 oversized cards with symbols similar to what’s written on the clues, specifically the Magic and Fables flyer.
The other side looks like cards pulled out of a deck: 9 hearts, ace of spade, 4 clubs, and 8 diamonds. There are also writings on each card like random words, letters, symbols, and numbers!
I also got a piece of a fake quarter.
After solving the case, we can finally open the Epilogue envelope. Inside is a letter from Magnus the Magnificent and an autographed photo! It was found out that the plan was devised by Magnus’ manager Val, and his assistant, Luna. They didn’t want Magnus to quit magic as Val can use this opportunity for his career to take off, while Luna fell in love with Magnus. Aside from the photo, Magnus also taught us some tricks using the fake quarter!
Sleuth Kings once again proved that they’re one of the best when it comes to mystery, detective, and “escape room” games! I’m really amazed by the great stories and believable cases, and how they also brought past characters again in the picture to make the cases more exciting. In this case, there are familiar brands that sponsored the magic show, which also appeared in past cases. They also taught us a trick using the fake quarter at the end of Magnus’ letter! It’s really fun to play as detectives along with the rest of the family, and we’re really excited about the upcoming cases and challenges we will be solving from this subscription!
