Puzzle solving is engaging, and the mystery is fun.

I had fun playing this with my 11 year old daughter, and she played the second half without input from me. There was at least one instance of "dammit", and one instance of attempted murder (not violently). I wish it didn't have the curse word in it, but with a little parental guidance, no problem. The puzzle solving promotes critical thinking, and the story is also fun for adults in my opinion.
