Solve our Shirts is so incredibly creative! In addition to the shirt and other physical objects you get in the mail, you integrate with an online interface, which guides you through the story, lets you check your answers, and offers hints if needed. We had a blast and were very impressed by how much puzzling and discovery they managed to embed in the shirt alone. All of the other items and documents were super fun as well. We were fortunate enough to get the deluxe version, which adds a few extra puzzles and some cool items! And now Dave has a sweet escape shirt to wear.

Reviews by escape room review sites

I'll confess that when I first heard of Solve Our Shirts I wasn't entirely sure whether to create a listing for it - surely an escape game in the form of a t-shirt had to be a fun novelty, probably a nice product but not any kind of substantial game, right? Wrong. I'd counted CU Adventures' earlier game Lost Temple as among the best online escape games I've tried, and if anything Solve Our Shirts is even better.
There's a limit to how many puzzles you can cram onto a t-shirt, and Solve Our Shir...

This is the game we didn’t know we needed, but we are so glad it exists! This game was great, and comes with a souvenir for your troubles. We need more nice things like this!

"Solve Our Shirts" was like playing a live escape room but from the comfort of your home. Just like an escape room, you'll need to look for clues (very carefully), compile information and use what you've found to open locks and doors. You can tell the creators are enthusiasts as our thought process aligned perfectly on how to solve these puzzles. The puzzles were designed with just the right amount of difficulty where you could discover the "magical" moments yourself. This was such a fun game. But you know what's even cooler? You'll probably become the center of the attention amongst your friends from now on. Why? Because who has a T-shirt full of puzzles?
To the best of my knowledge, Escape from the Maze of the Minotaur is the first time that puzzles, cotton, and a bit of polyester have been blended together to create a play-at-home escape game… and it was great fun.

A truly novel puzzle game experience, and a lot of fun.  I’m pretty sure they used Time Lord technology because there were somehow more surprises in that experience than there should have been room for.
