How Hunt A Killer Subscription Box Works?

  • Before starting the subscription, Hunt A Killer requires you to fill out a survey form. This will help to determine whether or not you have the right skills to play Hunt A Killer. You may receive questions like “Do you love mysteries and true crime/horror?”,  “Who do you plan on playing Hunt A Killer with?”, “What would you do if you get stuck or if you cannot find the answers?”, and “Why are you interested in playing Hunt A Killer?”. Once you are done answering these questions, Hunt A Killer requires you to fill out your name, city, and email address. 
  • The next step requires you to select your subscription plan from 3 options. You can choose a month-to-month subscription plan, a 6-month subscription plan, or even a 12-month subscription plan. In the 12-month subscription plan, you will receive two series at a 6-month interval. 
  • In the third step, you will need to create an account using your email address. Then, fill out your shipping address and pick your payment options. 

What I Love About Hunt A Killer Subscription Box

  • Each series has an interesting and unique storyline that you are unlikely to see elsewhere. All the mysteries require a lot of thinking and detective work, which makes Hunt A Killer super fun!
  • You can expedite orders at any time you want. This means that you can get all six boxes at the same time rather than on a 6-month basis. However, the shipping fee is likely to be higher than what is charged for regular shipping. 
  • Hunt A Killer allows you to pause your subscription. If you pause your subscription, you will not be charged for that month. This helps to reduce costs temporarily. You can pause your subscription for around 30 to 90 days.
  • Each episode or box comes with an objective card that includes all the necessary instructions for completing that episode’s investigation. So, if you are new to Hunt A Killer and do not know how to start your detective work, you can always take notes from the objective card. 

Shipping Policy

Hunt A Killer offers international shipping so you can get your hands on mystery or horror games from anywhere in the world. Hunt A Killer does not charge any shipping fee for members living in the United States. However, members living outside the United States will need to pay a small shipping fee. 

Cancellation Policy

If you want to cancel your subscription to Hunt A Killer, you will need to do it at least 3 business days before the renewal date. All you need to do is log into your account, click on “Manage Subscription”, and then click on “Cancel Plan”. You can also email to cancel your subscription plan. 

If you have opted for a prepaid subscription plan of either 6 or 12 months, you will not be able to cancel your subscription plan midway. Hunt A Killer will still send you the episodes on a 6-month basis and you will not be able to get your money back. However, your subscription plan will not be renewed automatically.


Hunt A Killer currently offers two types of subscriptions - Mystery and Horror. If you love true crime and want to solve cold cases, the Mystery Subscription might be the best option for you. On the other hand, if you are more intrigued by horror or spooky stories, you might want to opt for the Horror Subscription. I’m someone who is easily scared by paranormal or horror movies so I have opted for the Mystery Subscription.


The series I received in my Hunt A Killer Subscription Box was called “Curtain Call”. Curtain Call is basically about how Julia Adler, one of the founding members of the Cadence Theater, found the dead body of Viola Vein in the attic. Viola Vein was a popular actor during that era who had mysteriously disappeared. The series includes a lot of characters, special hints, and interesting mysteries that need solving.


In the first episode or box, I received ten items including three types of letters, a forensic report, inventory from the attic, two different notes, a cufflink that was said to be found in between the floorboards of the Cadence Theatre, a program, and a Cadence Theater Notebook. The letters were from PI, Julia, and Hector. One of the notes was from Ruth and the other was the rehearsal note.


All the notes and evidence were sent in this large black envelope, which made everything look very organized upon opening the subscription box. All the important stuff was kept in one place so there was no scope of losing any item.


As you can see, all the letters and notes are very detailed. Starting from the fonts to the dates, everything felt very real. It really did feel like I was solving a case from the 1930s era. A great deal of evidence and suspicious notes were sent in the first episode.


What do I need to play Hunt A Killer?

All the hints and materials are not included in the box. You will need to access websites and find facts and other information online. So, you will need to have access to the internet while playing Hunt A Killer. If you want to solve mysteries like a true detective, you can get a murder board kit in which you can pin all the characters, links, and theories using threads and highlighters. Hunt A Killer actually sells a murder board kit for only $47. You can easily fix it on your wall. 

What should I do if I have difficulty finding out hints?

It is completely normal to feel stuck while solving a case. Most real-life detectives struggle a bit before finding out the killer or culprit. Sometimes, our minds may miss certain hints and ideas that are right in front of us.

So, if you are having a hard time, you might want to take a step back and relax a bit before working on the case again. If that does not help, you can take a look at the hints page that is provided with every box or episode.

It provides you with solutions and hints without giving out any spoilers. Moreover, Hunt A Killer also has a Facebook group where you can ask questions and express your thoughts. The group members will always try to help you.

Who can play Hunt A Killer?

Both teenagers and adults can play Hunt A Killer. Hunt A Killer does not include any R-rated materials or storylines so anyone above the age of 13 can start solving the mysteries. However, some clues and evidence may include gory details, which might not be everyone’s cup of tea. 



I really like the fact that Hunt A Killer has a different storyline for each series. The series that I received, “Curtain Call”,  had its own original mystery which was pretty interesting to unfold. I was provided with lots of reading materials and interesting evidence such as notes, cufflinks, and handkerchiefs, which made me feel more drawn to the case. Moreover, Hunt A Killer also provides you with QR codes that you need to scan in order to gather more information or websites that you can go to if you want a more detailed picture of the characters. So, there are lots of ways you can follow to find out the hints. Hunt A Killer is an interactive game that I really enjoyed playing, be it by myself or with friends and family.
