This month’s box is called Sleight of Hand. It came with a full magician’s deck of cards. It also has a plastic magician’s wand. There is a small card that provides the puzzle associated with the deck of cards. There is a letter from the widow of a dead magician. And a small poster for Professor Conundrum. There are 4 envelopes that you will be directed to open as you work your way thru the box. This is my second box. I think you (memosinstilletos) would find the puzzles adequate because I find them rather hard. .
I Apologize for all grammatical and spelling errors as well as missing words and words that make no sense in the provided context. My IPad hates me.
I didn't love the "Sleight of Hand" but I liked it, let's put it this way. A LOT of gameplay and a full deck of cards are cool yes. Some puzzles were great, some weren't.
What I didn't enjoy is the narrative, it was kind of sloppy, with A LOT of reading, and puzzles weren't really walking us through the story, we were just unlocking a bunch of doors, not understanding what's up. The "who killed him after all" was all answered in the last annoyingly long text. I could easily just solve a bunch of unconnected puzzles and get the same feeling.
BUT if you like puzzles over the storyline, get it, I think the money/gameplay balance is great.
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?

Todd: Did you hear about the dwarfish fortune teller who broke out of jail? Police are on the lookout for a small medium at large.
