FAQ

What exactly is "Solve Our Shirts"?

Solve Our Shirts is a 60-90 minute-long puzzle game that takes place almost entirely on a T-shirt.

Each shirt is double-sided, and can be solved by a single player with a single shirt; however, we also offer a couple's pack with two shirts for two players, which allows the game to be solved while players wear the shirts.

The puzzle solving process does not destroy the shirt, so once you finish the game, you'll be able to continue wearing it as a souvenir of your victory!

Who made this, and why?

Solve Our Shirts is a new product by CU Adventures, an escape room company located in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. They also created the widely popular (and mentioned in the New York Times) online escape room games THE LOST TEMPLE and FLOOR 13.

The COVID pandemic has hit our business super hard, so we figured we’d try something super wacky, like a full-length puzzle game on a T-shirt.

Shirt art is by the incredibly talented McKenzie Marcum!

What comes with my purchase?

Each standard purchase comes with one shirt, a few printed materials, and a login code to access the web component at at-home.cuadventures.com.

The Couple’s Pack comes with two shirts, one copy each of the printed materials, and one login code to access the web component.

The Deluxe Edition comes with one shirt, more printed materials, and a login code to the deluxe version of the game at at-home.cuadventures.com.

The Deluxe Edition Couple’s Pack comes with two shirts, one copy each of the Deluxe printed materials, and a login code to the deluxe version of the web component.

What’s the difference between the Deluxe Edition and the standard edition?

The Deluxe edition has more puzzles and a slightly different web interface, but the shirt is exactly the same. We estimate the Deluxe Edition should add about 20-30 minutes more of game time to the experience.

What’s up with the Preorder?

We’re placing our order for these shirts on November 29, to make sure we have them in time to ship before Christmas. If you preorder, not only will your shirt(s) be the very first shipped out, but you’ll also have many more choices in colors and sizes!

Where can you ship to? Will I get these before Hanukkah/Christmas?

Excitingly, we’ve figured out how to ship to any country in the world!

In the US: To receive before December 25, we recommend purchasing before December 15, though earlier is always better. We also have different shipping options depending on how fast you need it. The schedule is a lot tighter for Hanukkah, so you may want to pre-order if you need the shirt the week of December 10-18 (please shoot us an email if this is the case, and we’ll do the best we can to make it happen!).

Outside the US: This is our first time shipping outside the US, but we’re told to expect 1-3 weeks. We can’t guarantee it’ll arrive in time for the holidays, but we think it makes a great “anytime” gift too!

Will you offer local pickup in the Champaign-Urbana area?

Heck yes! Select “Local Pickup” as your shipping option when you order, and we’ll hold it here for you at CU Adventures in Urbana. We’ll be open for pickup from 2-6PM every day from December 10-December 23, as well as by appointment.

What kind of shirts are these?

We are printing on District® Perfect Blend® Tees for the "Men's" style and District® Women’s Perfect Blend® Tees for the "Women's" style.

Do the shirts run slightly large or small?

This is our first time ordering this shirt style, so we aren't 100% sure, but we believe they should be fairly true-to-size. Take a look at the sizing page to see complete measurements!

What if I’m doing a large scale event and want to buy a bunch of shirts?

AWESOME. Shoot us an email and we can figure something out!

Are you going to make more of these?

We hope so! If this run goes well, we’ve got a lot of ideas for future shirts!
