Empty Faces

Welcome, Seeker.

It is up to you to seek out the EVIL that has been drawn to you. Here are some helpful hints to start you on your journey:

  • This experience is episodic. Think of each box as a new episode, with each episode building on the previous one. 
  • This means that there will not be a final solution with each episode, but each box should provide more context and allow you to make connections to clues in the previous boxes. 
  • All packages lead to a big reveal in the Season finale. 
  • Look for ciphers, take notes, figure out the piece of the puzzles and use real world research to guide you. Make strong connections along the way and remember: pay attention to every detail. 

How to Play

Get a Lay of the Land: Look through everything in your box at least once or twice before you start solving. Read the letters, and examine the objects. Clues can be hiding anywhere. We suggest you use your journal. You never know which details will be important down the road.

Look for Connections: Once you've familiarized yourself with the contents of your box, start thinking about how the items you've received fit together. Be on the lookout for patterns. Where are there similarities? Are there any inconsistencies? Do you notice any literary, historical, or scientific references that are worth looking into? As you move on to your next box, you will want to ask yourself, "How does information in this box relate to information you've received in previous boxes?" Remember to keep taking notes.

Research: Think about what's outside the box. Research is an integral part of the game. Diving deep into the story's intricacies will add to the quality of your experience. Every detail is included for a reason, and with enough research, you'll find out why. Don't be afraid to go down rabbit holes and explore how seemingly unrelated ideas could connect.

While we encourage members to explore every possible avenue, you should be able to solve the mystery using only the package contents and some external research using the Internet or your local library.

Deciphering/Puzzles: There are many different types of puzzles, codes, and ciphers incorporated in this game. Solving these puzzles can take some trial and error, but don't get discouraged. Look for irregularities that might indicate a hidden message, like random capitalizations, jumbled letters, etc. Learning more about cryptography can help with more challenging codes.
