Excellent Writing Activity for Secondary English Class
I recently purchased Class Reunion Mystery Box Set  as a reading activity for reluctant readers and loved it! Students were able to piece together bits of the story each week without thinking too much about the fact that they were indeed reading a story. I structured the game as a project and incorporated journaling and discussion into solving the puzzle. Students spent and hour each week studying the clues, around thirty minutes writing their inferences over each piece of evidence and about an forty-five minutes to an hour discussing their ideas out loud or on a digital discussion board. I would recommend this purchase to any teacher looking for an authentic school project that students will love!

Amazing and challenging
Loved this mystery box. It was challenging but not to a point where it would stress you out and make you quit. Loved the storyline, the development of the case as you open each box. It was a fun activity to do

Incredibly fun, great quality
I bought this game and put it down after opening the first box because I was a bit overwhelmed by all the materials. Picked it back up during the pandemic and had a blast solving it. Very realistic props, evidence, characterization and police reports. One cipher seemed way too hard for the 2/5 difficulty rating which is why I’m giving it 4 stars. But it was such a great experience I’m buying another box set soon!

Very Fun, but Bad Logic
The story was great, the files were wonderful, the concept was wonderful, the ending requires EXTREMELY specious logic that no judge would allow. As someone who knows how to write a story it felt feeble, as someone who understands criminal law it makes me wonder what damage Law and Order, Criminal Minds and even House has done to our societal understanding of human reasoning.

All that said, I could only be this annoyed if I really liked the story it was trying to tell and the way they went about it, and just had a problem with the ending, thus the 4 out of 5 rating
