September Update- On target
14 days ago – Thu, Sep 14, 2023 at 02:23:55 PM

Hello Everyone

We hope you are having a loving 'warm' September.  We are still on target for you calendars to be to you in November.

As scheduled, we are still in the manufacturing and packing stage. Everything has been printed and chocolates are being placed as we speak.  Don't worry your chocolates haven't melted and the production line has been kept cool throughout this UK heatwave. Numbers are good and we are manufacturing the amounts needed to fulfil your rewards.

What's next?

We will be locking your addresses on BackerKit now. You will receive an email shortly that will tell you this. This is your last chance to make sure the shipping details are correct and whether or not you would like any extra add ons to your order. Please make sure the address is the one you want your calendars sent to in November.  


We will keep our pre-order store open a little longer for anyone who has not ordered their calendars yet. We will be closing this near the beginning of October.

Chocolates arrived on schedule.
about 2 months ago – Fri, Aug 04, 2023 at 11:59:27 AM

Hello Everyone,

Just a quick message to let you know that the Chocolates arrived the other day and production has started on your calendars.

We didn't realise till now, we photographed the 4's and then posted on the 4th. We meant to do that. :)

Surveys 90% complete!!

Thank you to everyone who has filled in the survey on BackerKit. This is great and we can get on top of shipping much quicker. Just around 40 people left to fill out the surveys. Please check your inboxes. We have noticed some of the remaining emails are apple ID ones. Kickstarter sometimes has trouble with these and will either send to the junk folder or not at all so please check your email folders.

We will keep you updated as things progress.

Thank you for supporting us.


Surveys out.

Hello everyone, we are just sending a quick update about what is happening.  We have sent off the artwork for final printing as per schedule. Also the milk chocolate have been ordered and are being sent to the manufacturer for placement.


We will be sending out surveys for delivery addresses very shortly.  This will be coming from BackerKit, so please check your junk mail folders if you have not received them within the next 2 days. We have also added the possibility to get more add ons, including the wooden and acrylic Puzzle-A-Day calendar from DragonFjord that we sell on our website. Great for a stocking filler.

We will be sending the first set of surveys to the early bird backers first and then follow with all of the other pledges shortly after.

When filling in the survey, please make sure that you using the address you will want the calendars sent too in November. There will be a reminder to confirm this when we are ready to deliver.

End to an awesome campaign, now the work begins.

First of all, a huge thank to everyone who supported this project, from the smallest pledge to the largest, from our backers from our last campaign and our newest supporters. Welcome if you are new, brought before, come from Kickstarter, the UKGames Expo, or heard from a friend, you all now have yourself a beautiful looking calendar that you can solve and enjoy during the countdown to Christmas.

Thank you to all the backers who spread the word, the last 2 days have been a boom, we have now had the most backers that we have ever had! That’s awesome!

It is the end of a campaign and now starts the manufacturing. It's all hands on deck to get these into production now. We aim to ship these at the end of October to get to you by the beginning of December, we will be in touch with further updates on production.

What now?

Now, we will be sending out surveys to all our backers to collect addresses to be delivered too. This will happen in the next two weeks and we will send an update for when we send them so you can check your email addresses.

We are with Backerkit again this year to handle our pledge manager add ons and new pre order page coming soon.

So if you didn't manage to get one in the campaign you can get them from our pre order store.

We have also added another Add-on to our store. The Puzzle-A-Day calendar from DragonFjord, ( It was a popular request) where you must try to make today's date using all the pieces of the puzzle. A great gift for someone if you enjoy our  Escape calendars already.  We offered to our Backers last year and it was a huge hit so we are offering it to you again.( Now in wooden and acrylic design.)

In the next two weeks, BackerKit will begin collecting funds from you. Now is a great time to check and make sure your payment details are all up-to-date. If payments fail, it could cancel your pledge and you won't get your yummy calendars, so please check before it becomes an issue, we don't want you to be disappointed.

Please note:

Email addresses that go to ‘icloud’ or an apple account, always seem to have trouble with Kickstarter emails and messages. If your Kickstarter account is under this type of email please check spam folders.

We will be in touch shortly.

Thank you again for your support, keep puzzling.

Regards Jason

Would these interest you?

Only a couple of days left of the campaign. We hope you are as excited as we are.

Since we produce advent calendars and we like puzzles, we have coordinated with DragonFjord who produce Puzzle A Day calendars. We usually sell these on our website nearer Christmas, however is this something that would interest our backers. Would you like these as an add-on to your order? They would be £15 with very little shipping as they weigh hardly a thing and can be applied to inside your mailer packaging when we ship your rewards. If you would like to see these added to BackerKit at the end of the campaign, let us know in the comments below.

Acrylic and wooden puzzle a day calendars

UK Games Expo

While at the UK Gaming Expo, We noticed the Escape Room / Puzzle Games genre is starting to appear more and more in the gaming world. We would just like to mention a few we saw (and may have purchased) at the expo that might interest our backers. We are not getting anything for this, we just feel that we should spread the love. Here are some links that might be of interest.

The Detective Society

If you enjoy puzzles and you enjoy narrative storytelling, then check out the Detective Society’s new campaign too.

Using some new technology and great props, Detective Society has created an immersive world of intrigue and discovery. They have about one week left on their new storyline, ‘Murder on the Moon,’ and you can pledge for any of their previous adventures including their new family style game.

Check them out The Detective Society Campaign here.
