Deal alert for true crime fans! If you’ve run out of podcasts and documentaries to tune into lately, we’re here to tell you about Hunt A Killer, a murder mystery subscription box that finally lets you take on the role of detective. In this immersive mystery-game experience, you’re tasked with solving a fictional crime using the clues provided, all from the comfort of your own home. And did we mention new subscribers can save on their first box right now, too?
For a limited time, new customers can save 20% off their first Hunt A Killer box by entering promo code REVIEWED20 at checkout. Each box is part of an episodic six-month subscription, referred to as a “season,” that costs $165 total. However, you can also opt to start with a single box for just $30 plus shipping. Either way, you’ll get your first box for just $24 rather than paying the full $30, and trust us—you’re definitely going to want all six boxes.
The main objective while playing Hunt A Killer is to use the props within each box to try to crack a complex murder mystery. Customers receive one “episode” box each month delivered right to their door (or more frequently, if you become hooked!), over a period of six months (six boxes total) that will eventually lead them to uncovering the killer. Players can work together to decipher clues and solve the murder mystery.
When we tried out this unique subscription box, we were impressed by how detailed the components of each box were, and found that these finely-crafted clues delivered a truly rich, engrossing detective story. In fact, our tester and her boyfriend couldn’t stop thinking about it, so much so that they wanted to order the next box right away!
Each box will give you an objective, such as determining the murder weapon or eliminating a suspect, all of which will help you catch the culprit at the end of each “season.” Once you’ve figured out the clue in each episode, you email your P.I. boss to see if you were correct, and after that comes the hard part: waiting for your next box to arrive in the mail.
If you’re bored in the house these days and Monopoly just ain’t cutting it, Hunt A Killer can help bring the thrills to your game nights. P.S.— it’ll also make a great gift for any of your true crime-obsessed friends or family.
