Dispatch: On the Run Review - Box 2

If you're a fan of puzzles and mysteries, Dispatch by Breakout Games is the perfect subscription! Solve a mystery by following along with each box, which contains clues to help you along throughout the story.

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Breakout Games is the largest escape game company in the U.S., and the Dispatch box is their new subscription service. The first story in the series is "On The Run," and this is a review of the second box in the story. Read my review of the first box here, and a review of my Breakout Games escape room experience here.

The boxes costs $24.99 per month with free shipping. Taxes apply for New York ($2 were added when I entered my address), so I'm assuming they apply for California, as well.

The "On The Run" story follows the disappearance of your closest friend, who is suspected of killing his wife. The box has physical clues with details embedded online that will help you solve the mystery of what really happened.

Everything in the Dispatch boxes is so well-crafted. I was so impressed by the quality of the clues and inserts in the first box, and the realistic details continued with the second box (as expected). Here's a look at everything when I first took it out of the box.

There were four newspaper clippings to read.

There are also several handwritten notes that contain a bunch of details. Sitting down to read them really immersed me in the story and makes it seem so real!

There was also an envelope from the Bailey Detective Company with a bunch of police reports inside. If you ever get stuck with any of the clues, the first box contained a link to the detective's website at which you can enter a question to receive some help.

The police reports include an autopsy report, homicide report, and more. These were really interesting to read and contained a ton of detail. I don't want to say too much about the exact contents and writing, since I don't want to spoil the story for subscribers.

I probably should have included this photo first, but there's also an info card that lists everything that's inside of the box.

Bottom Line: I love a good mystery, and the interactive experience provided by the Dispatch box is a really unique way to immerse yourself in the story! I highly recommend this box to anyone who enjoys puzzles and detective stories. The clues are all really detailed and well-crafted, and it's fun to get lost in the story!
