Some other mystery box and escape adventure mailing services use boxes to ship the contents. While establishing Enigma Fellowship we went back and forth on whether to use a box or an envelope for weeks. We wanted to use boxes, but then decided to go with envelopes for two main reasons:
- Mailing things around the globe isn’t very environmentally friendly to begin with. We wanted to avoid the need to use heavier and larger boxes so that we could do at least some part in minimizing our impact.
- A lot of our players are based in the US, Canada, across the EU and some even in Australia and NZ. Using boxes increases shipping costs and we are really trying to keep our games cost-effective and accessible.
If you use a package consolidator or forwarding service, and they won’t accept an envelope then we offer two options:
- We can ship directly to you. Our shipping prices are not very expensive and we can ship pretty much everywhere in the world. The shipping prices shown in the cart are quite accurate since we get these in real-time from our shipping partners. If the prices look too expensive, please talk to us and we’ll do our best to try and find an alternative.
- If you really must receive a box, then please speak to us. We will see what we can do to accommodate your requirements in the meantime.
