The Curious Elevator of Mr. Hincks

You've recently moved to Hincksville and, after settling into your new home, decide to explore town. You meet inventor Stephen P. Hincks, Head Volunteer for the Hincksville Welcoming Committee, at Hincks Tower to procure your elevator pass for this colossal skyscraper that holds many of Hincksville's businesses and attractions.


The elevator has more in store for you than expected though, and will test your wits along the way. Are you ready to outsmart The Curious Elevator of Mr. Hincks?


Solve enigmas by pairing mysterious physical materials contained in this cryptic parcel with clues from the online elevator. Use the browser-based elevator to verify solutions and navigate through the floors.

Gazette Deluxe Boxed Set #1: Vol. 1, Issues 1-6

  • Two identical copies of 6 issues of The Hincks Gazette. Each issue is a 1-2 hour puzzle game.
  • Three pieces of mail containing the teal set of Hincksville souvenirs. (Collect all 4 pencils, stickers, and pins throughout the 4 Gazette Deluxe Box Sets! This box set includes the teal pencil, teal sticker, and teal pin.)
  • Six collectible stickers to track your progress through the 24 total issues of the Gazette.


"Like an escape room and a crossword puzzle were put into a blender and served with a side of small town charm." 


Each issue of The Hincks Gazette is a self-contained game which includes a front-page article filling you in on the debacle currently turning Hincksville upside down, and a path of connected puzzles which will ultimately help you solve the central conundrum and save* the day! (*wherein “save” can be defined as, but not limited to: successfully troubleshooting your houseplant that won’t stop sassing you, preserving the historical record of astronautical dinosaurs, or uncovering the truth behind the suspiciously helpful robot bellhops).


The Hincks Gazette is best played with 1-2 players, and has a playtime of 60-120 minutes per issue. The rules are simple, just start at START and you'll be on your way. While this game is mostly played offline, players can visit the Hincksville website to solve the mystery or access hints.
