The Woods MIGHT have been worth it but The Mountain was a pure disappointment. All those documents and hours spent deciphering messages with no further use or importance was nothing short of frustrating.

If you are considering buying, a few things to know. The "2 bottles of free wine" that is supposed to be part of the package, is actually another website you have to go to and register and then order-yadda, yadda. And when I went to the Empty Faces site it said it had a 25% discount applied at check out. I ordered the $140 package and got a $7.50 discount. I'm not so great at math, but that was clearly not the $28 I was promised. And after getting all the way through the process it turns out that this is a subscription, not a 5-month package--so 5 months from now I have to remember to turn it off. I had been looking at this as a gift for a few weeks and it's my bad that I didn't try to place the order sooner and learn all this 2 weeks ago. I sure hope the game makes my sister happy enough to make up for all the ridiculous bait and switch. Bad news.

Only done box 1 so far. It's fun & interesting & I was surprised to get an actual pocket watch. The online community is helpful. My complaint is it seems a bit pricey, although if you manage to get discounts it's not so bad. I want to get box 2 & see if there's more to it cuz box 1 was a bit too short in my opinion

My gf and I loved doing the first two episodes of The Woods. So much fun and a really cool story. Looking forward to completing it! The only issue we had so far was the packaging. The boxes were a little beat up and the necklace we got in the first box was broken. That being said it seems a bit over priced but we will continue with The Woods series and see how it turns out!

Only 2 boxes in and I'm already hooked! The Empty Faces series has been so much fun so far. Challenging enough to make me think but not too hard that it can't be done. Love it. Keep it coming!

Pretty awesome experience! Your first package pulls you right into the story with your first batch of evidence and a letter telling you the basics of what you're trying to figure out. The story really pulls you in from the get-go. My first box had plenty of material to keep me occupied for a few hours investigating and theorizing. When you figure everything out, you will have as many new questions as you do answers, which made me satisfied with my progress, yet still eager for my next box to come in the mail with more evidence and clues.

This game is totally addicting! It's the perfect blend of puzzles and the paranormal, I would give it 10 stars if I could.

Boxes are well crafted, but the company has a horrible auto renewal process. They make it seem like you are ordering just one storyline but Auto renew you when that storyline concludes without warning. When I cancelled the sub, they said the first box of the new story had already processed so they couldn't stop it, and only gave me a partial refund. When I said I would return the unopened box they refused to give me a full refund, stating it was company policy to not take refunds. This policy only exists to squeeze money out of the consumer there is no reason they shouldn't be able to take an unopened box back, or catch the box before it leaves the factory.
Beware of their predatory business practices.

I love it. It is challenging and intriguing. It isn't as easy as one might think. It works to increase rumour problem solving and.critical thinking. You can find support on the official websites and there are other social media groups (unofficial) who will help when you may be stuck. You also. find like minded people who understand the type of what is considered.to be morbid and it is not for the politically correct. The groups become friends and share other parts of their life which brings go cohesiveness to the group.

Beware of companies un-subscription process!
I was not a big fan of this type of game once I received it, but I was not going to give a bad review since I thought this was well put together for those interested in this type of game. But I am now forced to give a review to cancel this subscription which is unacceptable. For those on edge on getting this game, you should be aware that you are unable to cancel through their website and need to email Walter at emptyfaces
That was a slight annoyance, but the real issue here is Romnique.rivera at hunterkiller.com from emptyfaces will not cancel my subscription until I explain why I want to cancel.
I also started the process before the start of the next shipment closes which is most likely why they are not canceling it right away in hopes to charge me again.
So that is my review, and hopefully they will cancel my subscription now before I'm charged for another boring month.

Am I the only one that was underwhelmed? We got episode one of the Woods.I My family and I got through the first package in one night. When I told my husband what I spent it, he made a disappointing face. The trinkets are cute, but the story is kind of boring and no anywhere near as evil as I was hoping. I won't be getting any more.

What an experience!
After finally deciding to give Empty Faces a go, we are having a fantastic time! The experience of decoding and putting together all of the clues has been thrilling. With so many "a-ha" moments, it is hard to stop thinking about the case! I only wish we got on board sooner! We can't wait for our next package!

Review by JoLewis10 months ago
My daughter gave me a subscription to “Hunt a Killer” for Christmas and it was so much fun (box 1 and 2 so far) that I decided to try “Empty Faces” I love the puzzles and codes. I love the research and the detective work! The on-line community is very supportive and over all it’s just a very fun game!

This company is the bomb. The game is fun and keeps you interested to the very end. Customer service is on point.
Review by Bafford10 months ago
Our family ordered this for 6 months and, after the first box, wanted to cancel and get a refund.
First, we didn't realize this story builds month over month - I seriously thought we'd have a difference mystery each time. Secondly, the puzzles were too easy.
When I wrote to ask for a refund and cancellation I got a form email that all sales were final per their policy and they would cancel future renewals but that I'm out the $140 for the six episodes. Not very customer service oriented.
