After entering the former office of your great-grandfather, Jules Daumier, your eyes gradually get used to the semi-darkness. The room, arranged on the ground floor of the house, is overloaded with heterogeneous objects, making it look like a flea market or a cabinet of curiosities. Most of them are linked to Greece, but also to the passions and hobbies of their owner: photography, music and art in general. The office contains a few rare collectibles amidst inexpensive trinkets and more intimate memorabilia. All objects are fragments of a busy life. Your father designed a puzzle consisting of connecting them to bring them to life again and make you discover the life of your ancestor ...
Scan the QR code on the poster and follow the (very short) instructions: 🔎 The game consists of 13 puzzles, each composed of various fragments that you will have to connect together by using observation and deduction skills.
🧾 The puzzles are presented in the form of a fill-in-the-blanks text: it retraces chronologically the life of your ancestor, Jules Daumier, in Greece. There is no particular order to solve them. You can start with the easiest parts or, on the contrary, tackle the hard ones.
🌐 Some of the puzzles will need you to look for information online: listen to a piece of music, watch a video or be ready to use Google Maps! (You won't need a computer, the game is perfectly playable on a smartphone).
⌛ No timer: take the time you need to complete the game. The average time at 2 players is about 2 hours. But we strongly encourage you to play it over several days: just hang the poster on the kitchen or the living-room wall and go at your own pace ☺
🗝️ If you're stuck, online clues will guide you through each puzzle, in progressive steps. The game is not easy, so don't hesitate to consult some of them!
