The Cluebox is an intriguing interactive challenge. It is completely made out of wood and manually assembled in Germany. It’s difficult to solve but very satisfying when you do!
The Cluebox series is an original concept by iDventure. The boxes have very impressive mechanisms, unique locks, logical puzzles and hidden mysteries to solve. There are puzzles to solve on every side of the box. You’ll know when you’re done when you find the secret inside the box.
The story of Captain Nemo’s Nautilus is from 1870, Paris. After the first book about Captain Nemo and his submarine “Nautilus” raised great interest in public, Jules Verne is publishing the ending of the story about the mysterious captain.
Right before his death, Nemo says that he will enclose his scientific findings and autobiography in a small unsinkable container: “The last one of us left on the Nautilus will throw that container into the sea, and it will drift wherever the waves take it.” Right after that, Nautilus is destroyed. Although someone could think that the whole story is just a fantasy of Jules Verne, in private conversations the author admits that the characters are real. And now we can prove it!
We have found the “unsinkable container” and it is now up to you to reveal the secret of Captain Nemo and find the lost traces of his scientific findings!
In accordance with the instructions that Captain Nemo left as a legacy, Nautilus Cluebox consists of 116 individual parts making it the most complex Cluebox so far. The puzzle is made with loving care out of birch wood and wood oil and assembled with care by hand.
The puzzle box is aimed at 14+
It’s always hard to say how long it will take anyone to complete a series of puzzles like this but the developers suggest most people should take about 60-90 minutes. If you have lots of Escape Room experiences to call on or you’re very good at deciphering cryptic clues that will help a lot and you’ll probably do it faster. It’s got more puzzling and therefore harder than either Schrödinger’s Cat or Davy Jones Locker.
This puzzle box is resettable so it can be done over and over. Different to many other Escape Room concept games and puzzles.
The Cluebox has been developed and manufactured by iDventure from Germany and we have imported them directly from that company. In the past iDventure had developed only virtual escape rooms and murder mystery games. But since the success of their first Cluebox-Schrödinger’s Cat, they’ve spent more time developing two follow-up Clueboxes. This is the third in the series.
Packaging: The Cluebox comes in a printed cardboard package with themed graphics.
Size: 115mm x 115mm x 100mm
There is a very detailed solution available which is accessed from information on the card that comes with the puzzle.
