While Man Crates is renowned for crated collections with some disassembly required, we also dabble in gifts that take brains to open, not brawn. Our first mind-bending Puzzle Box works like an escape room riddled with complex clues. A worthy challenge for even the most hint-averse sleuths. But now—brace yourself—the proverbial stakes have been raised.
We present you with Puzzle Box: Secret Society. The Secret Society of American Puzzles is an organization so clandestine, so exclusive, it makes the Illuminati, Skull and Bones, and the Knights Templar all feel like a first-grader's birthday party to which the entire class is invited. In an effort to uphold their unrivaled excellence in puzzlery, The Society is seeking new members. Be assured, admittance will not be easy. We are not at liberty to reveal much more, though we can tell you this: Solving The Society's Puzzle Box requires a keen eye to detect invisible ink and about an hour's worth of cranium-draining effort.
Put his intellect to the test with Puzzle Box: Secret Society, and let him prove he has the wit and wisdom to join the revered ranks of The Secret Society of American Puzzles.
Intrigue and Mystery Are Afoot
- Along with a packet of documents intended for his eyes only, he will receive a specially made wooden box for his hands only, featuring cryptic engravings and hidden compartments.
- The Society understands that even the greatest minds have moments of bewilderment. Accordingly, they have created an online hub of hints.
- No solved puzzle shall go unrewarded. When he decipers the final dilemma, he'll uncover his choice of two rewards: The Kershaw Shuffle, a popular, pocket-size multi-tool featuring a handy blade, or the magnetic LiL Larry 250-lumen work light with low, high and red flashing light modes.

Parts did not fit
I got this at Christmas time and saved to give to my husband for his birthday. We just tried to solve it. We were having a great time but, in the end we could not complete it as the gears would not fit properly in the box in order to rotate and part of the puzzle did not match up. I would be happy to send pictures and explain our problem but, I do not want to give away answers here in my review
Man Crates Response: Hey there Jennifer.
Sorry to hear that the parts inside didn't quite work out. Thanks for not posting spoilers in your review! Please give us a call at 866-902-7260 and we'll make sure we get your trouble resolved ASAP, thanks!

I ordered two of these. One each for two of my, let's just say, several, sons.
A couple of other sons received different Man Crates they were absolutely delighted with; but and I must say, these puzzle boxes captured the attention of every man in the house!
It hardly mattered that one of the locks on one of the boxes was not locked when the crate was opened. Getting the lock open was one of the simpler tasks, and didn't distract from the awesomeness of the box at all, and in fact, he whole Man Gang (between the ages of 16-35) gathered around to assist in solving mystery after mystery in order to get to the prizes that are actually of such quality that my industrial designer and his brother, the mechanic were quite happy with them!
All of the guys were very happy with all of their gifts, but these captured the most attention and kept them busy long enough to utterly burn the deep fried turkey!
And oh well!
Who needs to eat, really, having such fun?
You did good, Man Crates! Very, very, good; especially at helping out a frazzled mom who runs out of ideas come Christmas and birthdays.
THANKS! I'll be ordering again soon!
Oh, and thanks a hundred times over for getting a gift here at the very last minute. I owe you for that one. -)

So much fun!
Our entire family was working on this (including my 5 year old!). I took the risk after reading the reviews but my box arrived intact - no issues. I honestly had a lot more fun solving this than many other boxes supplied to me by professional puzzle subscription companies and that says a lot!

I got this for my husband as a Christmas gift. It was such a hit! He said it was the best gift. I saw the reviews so I checked the box once it arrived and everything was intact. Hopefully you make more puzzle boxes!

It was tricky
My Dad loves solving puzzles like this so when I had seen it I knew it was perfect. My first box I ordered came damaged. Thankful mancrates has excellent customer service and I got another Christmas Eve!! Packaged better and good condition. Only fault this time was the lock was already locked and not on the box. We just rolled with it. Probably took a couple hours to get it solved. My brothers helped too. Fun family time. And he liked the flashlight. The UV light also. He’s a mechanic so both will come in handy.
