Dispatch by Breakout Review January 2018

Dispatch is a monthly subscription-based mystery that tests your detective skills each month with a new delivery of clues. Imagine a new kind of escape, one you can experience in the comfort of your own home – introducing Dispatch by Breakout. It’s a step apart from everyday entertainment—better than a book, more engaging than television—think of it as an immersive mystery where you wear the detective hat. They kindly sent us this box for review.

Subscription Details

The story begins with the first delivery, or dispatch, if you will. In it, you’ll find physical clues that lead you to the web and back to the real world to unravel a mysterious crime. Grab a friend, the whole family and your thinking cap, and get ready to put your heads together for one mindbending ride as additional details are revealed with every package.

Good to Know:

  3. The first box will guide you to a ‘help’ line if you get stuck at any point.

Dispatch is the ultimate puzzle sent right to your door!  Each month the puzzle expands, becomes clearer, and more confusing as you unravel more and more clues to solve the mystery.

Here’s a look at the clues we received in this month’s box…….

UV Light with Note

Humm… I feel like the UV light might reveal something un-seen.. Perhaps like a black light effect?

Music Sheet

Uh-oh.. I hope I don’t have to know how to play the piano with this one.  Will you be ahead of the curve if you know how?  Curious to know your findings.

Colouring Sheet with Red Marker

I wonder why you have to colour the sheet with multiple colours but have only been given one colour?  Did you receive a different colour?

Playing Cards

Hummm… No real clue with these ones.  I wonder if they are used as some sort of decoder?

Ledger Page with Invoiec

Curious too!  Looks like this could be a trace left to follow…

Police Reports

These are super interesting!  A missing persons report right from the police themselves.

Medical Reports

This piece of information is really fuelling my curiously!

Movie Ticket

Another piece of information leaving a trail of time and place of whereabouts!

Boomerang Card

Ok, this one has me completely stumped!

Letter

Love evidence like this… This is when it starts getting really personal.

Diary Pages

More personal details.  I feel some real answers are to be found here.

Dispatch by Breakout January 2018 – Final Thoughts

Sarah mentioned in her last post it might bet better if Sarah reviewed one whole batch of mystery and I another.  This way we wouldn’t be too confused with all the clues.  Even though I feel a little out of the loop with this box I’m still so curious about it and can’t help trying to solve the mystery with only the clues I have!  Have you been receiving this box since the beginning of this mystery?  Have you ideas on who-done it?
