I really want 1934 when they deliver to the Uk. I've heard it's superior to 1968, but then I'd hope so for the money! Re the monthly boxes, it's definitely one of those hit or miss things. I think the reason I enjoy it is many of the objects don't have solutions so you can investigate for days on end; even if the research comes to nothing the research (at least until the end reveal) feels endless. You don't get that from 1968 which is fine, but there were only two puzzles to solve, and I think if all the research is inside the box only I'd expect something a little more meaty rather than something with only a few hours play. It's interesting you got more from it once you knew the solution. I guess it's like rewatching a great movie where you already know the ending so can concentrate on the little details you missed first time around; I'll give it a try!
I'd agree with this, though I went through 1968 a second time recently and enjoyed it much more knowing everything that was going on. I personally thought 1934 in terms of an experience/unboxing was really incredible, especially the quality and interactivity of the items within, though, in the end, the mystery/solution to 1934 wasn't particularly special or great. In my opinion, there's just no comparison between 1934 and 1968; 1934 is by far the superior and more impressive product. I will say that I'm not at all invested in the storyline for the monthly boxes, so your mileage may vary quite a bit if you do enjoy the monthly boxes.
