From Rudy Games or CloudAge in collaboration with Alexander Pfister) is based on a “box full of surprises”.

One of the adventures lasts around an hour, and two to five players can take part in each. The concept is aimed at players aged 14 and over and relies on popular names: the adventures revolve around Sherlock Holmes, Cleopatra and Leonarda da Vinci.
