As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Baffled searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "baffled box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "baffled 2.box" for the latter.

Unlike certain other social commands, Baffled cannot be parameterized.
