Beat the Box begins with a mysterious video message in which a strange voice challenges the participants to a game. Each team is faced with a metal box. Inside is a series of locked cases each containing a mystery to be unraveled. In the room the clock ticks counting down the minutes.
Teams set about to solve the problems, crack the combinations and unravel the mysteries to advance from one case to the next. And, ultimately they must decipher a code and enter it into an electronic combination lock before the time has elapsed. Can your team Beat the Box?
