BreakInbox presents an intriguing gaming concept set within three interconnected cubes, requiring collaborative solving to unveil the central prize. These cubes boast robust construction from durable paper material, fortified by grommet-reinforced holes, ensuring both enduring use and structural resilience. Utilizing a rubber band and a small lock mechanism, the cubes remain securely closed. A standout feature is their reusability, as no writing is needed, enabling easy sharing among friends. Notably, BreakInbox deviates from the convention of ascending difficulty levels within sets, opting for distinct standalone puzzles rather than a progressive challenge scale.

BreakInbox introduces an array of captivating puzzle sets, each categorized into three levels of difficulty: Medium, Difficult, and Very Difficult. These sets consist of a trio of locked boxes, each posing its own unique challenge. To ultimately access the coveted prize within the smallest box, players must diligently solve the puzzles in sequential order. While many of BreakInbox's offerings demand external knowledge and involve the use of smartphones or the internet, certain boxes cater to individuals seeking an offline experience, providing a distinct challenge or allowing play during periods like Shabbat.


For an optimal experience, having a laptop on hand is recommended. Some puzzles may incorporate interactive elements that require the precision of a mouse and keyboard. The gameplay itself revolves around deciphering intricate symbolic puzzles on each of the three boxes within a set. Should players find themselves stumped, assistance is readily available through a QR code accompanying each set, providing access to hints that can nudge them back on track.

The Blue Set

  • The puzzles presented in the Breakinbox experience often lean towards the easier end of the spectrum. The method involves a sequential progression of puzzle-solving, encouraging players to logically deduce the final 3-digit solution necessary to unlock the next box in line. The puzzle sequence design is intricately crafted, leading participants through a cohesive and well-structured logic path. In our endeavor to tackle this challenge, we found that the need for hints was remarkably minimal, a testament to the well-balanced puzzle difficulty. As a team of escape room enthusiasts, the cohesive flow of puzzles engaged our analytical minds with ease.

The Green Set

  • "The Green Set" offered by BreakInbox stands as a formidable challenge within their repertoire. This elevated level of difficulty is rooted in the intricate task of deciphering and interlinking a series of images, each holding a crucial clue. This particular set is hailed by the company as their most demanding offering, and it's easy to see why.

  • However, while the puzzles in "The Green Set" can be satisfying to solve, we did encounter instances where the logic required seemed to take larger leaps. Occasionally, this led to a sense of slight frustration as some connections felt almost unfairly distant or abstract. It's worth noting that cultural differences also played a role in this experience. Certain concepts that might be commonplace in Israel posed more of a challenge for us as American participants, emphasizing the need for a broader understanding of diverse cultural references.

BreakInbox presents an intriguing range of puzzle sets, categorized by varying levels of difficulty, catering to different skill levels and preferences. These sets encompass a series of three locked boxes that need to be tackled sequentially, each culminating in the opening of the smallest box, revealing the prize within. The company offers both online-aided and internet-free variations, with certain boxes designed for a shabbat-compliant experience.


"The Blue Set" is an engaging choice for those seeking medium-level challenges. Its puzzles are cleverly structured, primarily relying on sequential puzzle-solving to derive a final three-digit solution. The flow from one puzzle to another is seamless, and our team found minimal need for hints, given our collective experience in escape rooms. This set is a fantastic option for casual gatherings, offering an entertaining and satisfying way to share some brain-teasing fun with friends.


"The Green Set", distinguished as BreakInbox's most demanding offering, showcases a higher level of complexity. Centered around the interpretation of interconnected images, this set requires a keen eye for detail and intricate deductions. The difficulty level here can be attributed to more significant leaps in logic, occasionally bordering on frustration due to the abstract nature of some puzzle connections.


Additionally, cultural differences played a role, introducing concepts that might be commonplace in Israel but unfamiliar to American participants. This underscores the global nature of these puzzles and encourages a broader perspective when approaching the challenges.


Both sets capitalize on the enjoyment derived from deciphering visual puzzles, providing varying degrees of intellectual satisfaction. While the Green set poses more formidable challenges, "The Blue Set" ensures a fun and accessible experience. Ultimately, BreakInbox delivers a unique form of entertainment that transcends geographical boundaries, offering puzzles that prompt participants to think outside the box.
