How do I make a team?
Once the game begins, subscribed players will be able to register a team name and invite other players to join them.
Does everyone on my team need to subscribe?
No. The only requirement is that at least one person on the team subscribes so the team has at least one set of artifacts to share amongst themselves.
That being said, we think lower player-to-artifact ratios (ideally 1:1) make for a more successful and enjoyable experience. And we recommend for teams that are distributed across multiple remote locations that each location have at least one subscribing player. But it really depends on your budget.
How large should my team be?
Teams can be any size, but we think solving the puzzles is more fun with small- to mid-sized teams. Of course the exact number depends on the personality of the players, but with too many people — for example, seventeen — we think some members may feel marginalized.
What if I want to play on my own?
That's totally fine, too. The game was designed for either group or individual play. But individuals will certainly find the game harder.
Is it easy to give the Black Letter Game as a gift?
You bet! Each time you subscribe to the Black Letter Game you receive a unique subscription code (purchased below). This code will allow you to register on the game website. You can use the code for yourself, or you can give the code to someone else as a gift (it’s like a gift certificate). We're sure your friends, families, and teammates would just love to find the Black Letter Game under this year's Christmas tree, Chanukah bush, Kwanzaa floral arrangement, or arbitrary seat cushion.
