Mystery Greetings Cards

If you are looking for an unusual card to give someone,why not send them a Puzzle Card?

Produced by the Puzzle Card company, their cards are more than just greetings. They are a quick-to-solve murder mystery, or treasure hunt or escape room game…..

Murder on the line

The story begins when the five carriage Wensley Express train leaves the station carrying a group of suspicious passengers. The five travelers on board are

  • Dr John Selby
  • Lionel Fleetwood
  • Cyril Witherstock
  • Ms Penelope Hatterly
  • Ms Bouvais

Unfortunately poor Ms Bouvais is not going to reach her intended station.

Why?

Because there is murder on the line!

So now you have one victim and four possible suspects. Your task is to deduce which of the passengers was to blame. All the clues and answers can be found by studying the card. These are text and image based puzzles. We found the puzzles fairly easy, but there are hints available online if you need them.

Once you have deduced the murderer, you need to enter your solution to the Puzzle Card website to see if you are correct.

Escape the Room Card

This is the first in the Puzzle Card series and is based on an escape room. You are told you have awoken to find yourself locked in a strange room. Your task is to find a password to escape. You must solve the clues found on the card to identify the password. Then you can enter it online to see if you are correct.

Internet access is required to enter your solution for all the cards. It is also how you can obtain hints to the puzzles.

Crack the Safe Card

This time you awake to find you have been locked in your bedroom. Not only that, but your belongings have been moved and there is now an old fashioned safe in your room. Your task is to crack the safe combination. To do this you must solve a series of clues hidden in images throughout the card.

Again, once you have the code you must enter it online.

The Treasure Hunt Card

For the Treasure of Evelon Island you have to identify the location of the hidden treasure using a series of clues left by a long lost ancestor. To help you there is a separate envelope which contains a letter from your distant relative along with a number of items to help you find the mystery location on a map.
