Treasure Hunters: The Legend of Sea Dog Simmons
I purchased this for my grandkids, ages 7,9, and 10. You first need to hide the map pieces, then the other clues. The kids need to find and assemble the map (easy). The clues for obtaining the final code needed to open the treasure chest are pretty complicated and the kids needed quite a bit of guidance to figure everything out. It did come with complete instructions, which I think could be organized a little more clearly. I supplemented the “treasure”, I had hoped for something a little more appealing to kids. The kids enjoyed it, the treasure chest was pretty awesome, the clues to the cypher were printed clearly and in color.
This was the second escape box I bought from the Get Outside Club. it was so much fun!!! I highly recommend this product along with any of the other boxes. I an sure I will continue to buy more.
This was a hit at my 8 year old birthday party. It was definitely challenging and they needed some help from the adults, but a lot of fun.
This puzzle box is not a great puzzle experience in general. The map wasnt necessary in the solution, made even worse by the only things that are important are made incredibly obvious. ( Dont want to spoil the 'fun' in the review so I wont elaborate here. )
Maybe this would be alright for young kids set up as a scavenger hunt with parents as 'game masters'. If you're looking for a more traditional puzzle box experience this is not for you.
We did this for my 11 year old daughters bday! It was so much fun to start by hiding the map. From there, they did need some assistance with the clues (which also meant that I got to play)! Really a great product and a lot of fun!
