DeLaporte Biweekly Brainbusters
A twice monthly brain workout provided by Escape My Room
With the DeLaporte Family Home and Escape Room closed for business for the next few weeks, the DeLaportes have decided to revisit one of their favorite vacations, a trip to Paris for the 1889 World's Fair, the very same exhibition that the Eiffel Tower was unveiled at 131 years ago!
It's your first day working for a real life detective agency, Crescent City Cases, but things are off to a rocky start. Can you figure out your way in and get started on your first investigation? Everyone who completes this puzzle gets a sneak peak at a new DeLaporte family mystery!
On March 7th, 1876 Alexander Graham Bell received a patent for the telephone. In the last 144 years telephone technology and the associated innovations have become a central part of the modern lifestyle. However, the DeLaportes are not known for their technological prowess or for accepting modern lifestyles, and they could use your help!
H.A.R.T.'s Chief Onjubo has a mission for you, one of her animal Captains has been acting up, and she is very close to firing her. Chief wants you to go in and straighten the Captain out before she is forced to make a difficult decision. Can you keep this sarcastic otter in a job by solving her clues before her boss does?
The holiday season is a hectic time around the DeLaporte mansion. Family members, gifts from DeLaporte admirers, and general holiday cheer is abundant, but Mrs. DeLaporte just doesn't have time to take it all in AND enjoy the season. Maybe our fearless investigators can help share in the classic holiday duties?

What is this?
The DeLaporte Bi-Weekly Brainbusters are mini puzzle games that are released every two weeks!
When are new games published?
New games are typically published on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, though we are currently taking a break to prepare a brand new batch of puzzles for you! Subscribe to be kept up to date!
How do I start?
There are multiple ways you can start your game! You could stumble upon our social media posts on Facebook and/or Instagram, check the homepage, or subscribe to the mailing list to get the first puzzle sent directly to your email as soon as the game is published!
What do I do then?
There are typically 4 puzzles per game, though some can be much longer. Each puzzle will lead to the next until you reach something that says "Congratulations!"
Can I play these games on my phone?
If your phone has web browsing capabilities you will be able to play every game on your phone. With that being said, we recommend you use a computer instead as the puzzles are optimized for that view, and some things may be hard to notice/read on your phone screen. Most puzzles will have a printable pdf option available, which may be easier to navigate than the full website view.
Do I need to print anything?
You should never NEED to print anything, though some puzzles are definitely easier to deal with in printed form.
What kind of puzzles will I encounter
The puzzles within these games are what we would describe as Escape Room Style puzzles. These types of puzzles include pattern recognition, organization, ciphers and codes, narrative clues, puns, word games etc. You may also find various classic style puzzles such as crosswords, logic grids, sudoku, nonograms, word ladders, mazes, seating chart logic puzzles, etc. When these classic puzzle types are present within a game, it is probably somewhat obscured by the graphics/story, or could have an additional step that makes it unique to the game, be sure to read the instructions for each puzzle carefully so you don’t miss something there is almost always a hint for what you’re looking for within the flavor text at the start of each puzzle.
How do I win prizes
To be entered to win a prize you must complete the current game and submit the “Enter to Win” form. One submitter is chosen at random to receive the prize unless otherwise stated in that particular game’s rules. Each submitter is only eligible for one entry, regardless of how many times they submit the “Enter to Win” form unless otherwise stated.
