GAMES AT OUR LOCATIONS
Are your rooms bilingual?
With the exception of the Microbrasserie La Souche room, all of our games can be played in French OR in English. For the English version, it is important to mention it before the start of the game.
Are any of your rooms wheelchair accessible?
Yes, we have rooms that can accommodate a person in a wheelchair or a person with reduced mobility. Contact us for more details.
Do you have a reception hall?
Are reservations reimbursable?
No, all sales are final.
What should I bring for my visit?
Your brain is all you need! In any case, you can’t use any outside help (books, calculators, cell phones, etc.). We invite you to bring only the strict minimum to your visit, because there isn’t any locked storage available on site to store your personal effects.
Will there be other people with us? Is it a private event?
Each game can accommodate the maximum number of players indicated per room. Thus, if your group doesn’t meet this maximum number, you may be grouped with other participants, unless you book for a private event (i.e., paying for the maximum number of players).
Please note that currently, due to COVID-19, an exceptional measure is in place. Défi-Évasion will privatize each group to limit contact between people who do not know each other. However, because of this measure, a payment for minimum 3 participants is required (except for The Crazy Cat Lady room at the Quebec City branch).
Do you take groups?
Yes, don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to organize an event at Défi-Évasion. A discount rate is offered to groups of 20 players or more. Contact us at the following email address for additional information: firstname.lastname@example.org

How much time should I arrive before my reservation?
Défi-Évasion suggests arriving 15 minutes before the time of your reservation in order to sign in and listen to instructions. Otherwise, you’ll simply have less than 60 minutes to get through your Défi-Évasion challenge… Your experience will last approximately one hour and thirty minutes from your arrival at our location to your departure.
Will I get dirty playing this game, is strength needed, and am I actually stuck in the room?
NO, the rooms / games are designed to be suitable for everyone. There’s no reason to be afraid; these are logic games. Moreover, with each room controlled by cameras, you can, if needed, ask to leave the room by indicating it to the game master. Obviously, if you leave the room, you won’t be able to re-enter it during the game in progress.

I would like to know more about how an online game is played. What are the playing instructions?
This is an online riddle game that can be played with any device as long as you have Internet access! However, this is not a video game. On your own or with a team, enter a scenario where you’ll have a series of riddles to solve that will allow you to reach the conclusion of the story and thus achieve your objective. There are no restrictions! Have fun, use your imagination and logic to succeed in the game.
Are purchases reimbursable?
No, all sales are final.
How long does an At Home game last?
It depends on the game chosen and its difficulty level. On average, you can schedule 90 minutes of play. However, there’s no time limit, so you can do it at your own pace, and even in multiple sessions during the 60 days of validity.
What is the price per access?
All of our online games are $17.40 plus tax.
Is the At Home game hosted by someone?
No, there’s no game host or facilitator. So, you don’t have to reserve a particular time slot to play. Just play when you feel like it!
I want to play with people remotely. How does that work?
For participants playing remotely with other players, each player must have their own access to the game that they can open on one of their screens (computer, tablet, television, etc.). Each player must log in via their customer account which is automatically created at the time of purchase. Then, all you have to do is connect with the other players via a communication platform (Facetime, Skype, Zoom, etc.) to see each other and discuss the solutions to the puzzles. This is not a video game in which you will see the progress of your teammates in the game. Each player, on their own device, will have to enter the answers to move on to the next step.
There’s no problem playing with people outside of Quebec or Canada. However, all players must have an Internet connection.
What equipment do I need to play an At Home game?
At Home games are accessible and playable 100% online via our website. If necessary, you can take a pencil to write down information. You only need a device (computer, tablet or phone) as well as an internet connection. To be sure your device is compatible, we recommend that you look at the recommended specifications for the game you wish to purchase. If applicable, a link to a technology tutorial will be included on the At Home game purchase page. Many of our games include technological tools. In order to validate if the device (computer, tablet or cell phone) with which you are going to play is compatible, we invite you to click here.
Can I play the game immediately after having purchased it?
Simply allow a few minutes for the website to process your purchase. Once the transaction is complete, you can start your game by going to the Purchased Games / My Membership section of your customer account. This customer account can be accessed directly at the top right of the Défi-Évasion website.
Do I have to start the game on the date of purchase, or can I start it later?
You’ll have access to the game starting at the time of your purchase and for the next 365 days.
If you decide to play in several sessions, we recommend that you take notes of the answers obtained at each stage to easily pick up where you left off, because your answers won’t be saved.
