Once you've played a couple of these games, the puzzles are a bit to similar

Very much enjoyed the layout of this game and had some interesting puzzles. Some were slightly on the easier side but were done in a clever way and we had fun.

This was the second Puzzle post game we have played in recent months, and this was just as much fun as the first one. We thought this might follow a similar structure to the first, and it did, however it was original enough for that not to matter. We throughly enjoyed this and would highly recommend it.

Puzzle Post is a great concept, perfectly delivered (no pun intended) and has so many uses. Party invitation? Pregnancy reveal? Happy Birthday message? So many options!

The Missed Flight is a brand new gift concept from the clever people at Puzzle Post. The idea is simple! A good friend of yours has sent you a message via third party, Lucy Kingston. But in an exciting twist, Lucy goes on the run! Unable to pass along your message, she goes into hiding. Perhaps the clues she’s left behind in her travels hold the key? If you want your message, you’re going to have to solve the clues.

Puzzle Post’s The Missing Flight was a well-constructed, approachable puzzle game with a bit of story. Everything was lean and cleanly presented through assorted paper components, with solid graphic design.

An envelope stuffed with puzzles and a secret message has been delivered through our letterbox. Let’s see what it contains…

The Missed Flight makes for a perfect puzzle gift. The story has believable stakes, the puzzles are solid and the quality of the components is excellent. I’d recommend this for anyone wanting to send their favourite puzzler something a little different for that special occasion

Puzzle Post is a cute idea, well-executed. It’ll be a fun diversion for anyone who likes a little challenge, and makes a great substitute for a greetings card or a standard, boring old letter.
