Frequently Asked Questions

What is PostCurious?


We make narrative tabletop puzzle games! Not quite an escape room, not quite a board game, we make interactive stories told through puzzles, using physical objects and some online components. You can experience these adventures from the comfort of your home as you solve riddles, decipher symbols, and manipulate objects to further unravel the mystery. We also offer consulting and custom design services for tabletop games, escape rooms, special events, and more.




What is The Tale of Ord? Will there be a reprint?


The Tale of Ord was a limited edition game with only 500 copies. It was narrative puzzle adventure told in four packages, each containing various clues such as articles, maps, letters, drawings, unique artifacts, and a mysterious wooden box… Each package had its own conclusion while the overall story developed throughout the entire experience. The Tale of Ord is currently sold out without any plans for a reprint. Please subscribe to our newsletter for updates in case that ever changes.




Is there anything in The Emerald Flame that doesn’t come in the package that I will need to play the game?


You will need an internet connected device, a pencil, ruler, scissors, and a way to light a fire.




How many people can play The Emerald Flame?


The Emerald Flame is a cooperative game and can be played solo or in a group. We recommend groups up to 4 players.




How long is The Emerald Flame?


The Emerald Flame comes in 3 chapters, each about 2-3 hours of gameplay depending on the number of people and the experience level of the players. You can play one package in a sitting, or spread it out over a period of time.




What if I get stuck and can't finish?


We like to give you a challenge, but we know getting stuck without help is no fun. That's why we provide players with an easily accessible hint system, as well as spoiler-free solution verification.




What is your refund policy?


We will refund or replace defective items at no cost. If an item is still unopened and not defective, it will be refunded at our discretion. Unfortunately in those cases we cannot offer free return shipping. For the The Emerald Flame Kickstarter refund policy, please see the bottom of the Kickstarter page.




Are you making more games?


Our newest creation, The Emerald Flame, is currently live on Kickstarter. Beyond that, we certainly have plans for more! You can sign up for our mailing list and follow us on social media for updates!




What ages is The Emerald Flame appropriate for?


The Emerald Flame is designed for adults and therefore we recommend it for ages 14 and up. Slightly younger sleuths may join in with the guidance of an adult, as the game does not contain material that might be considered "sensitive".
