READY TO EXPERIENCE "THE CRAAAFT"?
"The narratives were very engaging. I also thought the puzzle matching to the time periods was very appropriate. The game did a good job of not being overbearing in its education but letting the game play take the education farther. The other thing we really liked about these games was the unique style puzzles. There were a lot of unique puzzles in each of them. I thought it was a blast."

AO - "I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM FOR ANYONE!"
Love The Resystance boxes! Each one comes on time and is packaged very well with a list of what is inside each box. We purchased the 6 month plan as a History supplement for homeschooling. It was so worth it. My kids learned about Elizabeth Van Lew, a spy during the civil war, Prohibition, and Ghandi all while solving puzzles, riddles, and ciphers. There was a lot of internet research needed too which made my kids think outside the box a bit. The Resystance Boxes are a fantastic way to learn about history, while having fun at the same time. I highly recommend them for anyone!
GD - "5 STARS!"
They always make me feel like they honestly care about my experience.
GR - "AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!"
History and puzzles and current technology all woven together in an experience that I absolutely love. The puzzles aren’t too easy to solve, but also aren’t so difficult that you can’t figure them out without hints (although they do provide them if you need them, I very stubbornly refused to look!). What stands out even more than the product itself are the people behind it. I had some unique shipping hurdles to overcome. The team behind this product gave the best customer service I have seen in a LONG time. I don’t know any of their names, and my dealings have been always through email. They are quick and responsive, and really want to help you. The only negative thing I can find, is that I didn’t know about them sooner. If you like puzzles and cyphers, and history, without serial killers and horror, I would suggest joining the Resystance!!
December - The Holly King
As the year comes to a close, we have been made aware of a situation that you are uniquely qualified to help us address. It seems that the transition to a new year is being thwarted by the Holly King, king of the waning year. He has become offended and refuses to relinquish his hold on the sun to the Oak King so we may begin our journey into the New Year. The Holly King feels that the old ways have not been honored this year, and refuses to allow the days to begin to grow longer until he can be appeased. The Holly King joined us at the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. Since that day, the Holly King has ruled over the ever shortening days and lengthening nights. If he does not step aside to allow the Oak King his reign, the days will continue to shorten until, without the sun, we will be plunged into everlasting darkness and cold. Help us solve the mysteries and remember how and why we honor the return of the sun.
