Unsolved Gift-ery

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.

    Awesome gift. I also had a small issue with packaging and an open lock. Contacted the team and they absolutely made things right. MC customer service is amazing. My fellow puzzler really enjoyed the box and puzzles. I was able to have a go at it, and I think it is an awesome setup. All in all I would definitely recommend this gift for that special someone who loves puzzles. In fact, one will be going into my collection soon.

    Arrived broken, but he still enjoyed it...

    The puzzle box is wrapped in cardboard, but unfortunately, one of the sides of the box was snapped free from the rest of the box when he opened it. The padlock was already ‘open’ (not latched) but knowing these kinds of padlocks—-it was better that it was open. These are the padlocks you set yourself, and once latched and you try to create a code- game over, it can become a doorstop.

    So we have a popped box, unlatched lock, but he still had fun going through the puzzle anyway. The Kershaw knife is a great little pocketknife. I can glue the side back onto the box if need be, but it wasn’t protected very well from the abuses of parcel shipping.

    He did love reading the instructions, using the snap-in gears to make words-and the mazes!

    Arrived broken. Not packed well for shipping. I would not recommend this item until they figure out better shipping boxes.
