Escape the Book! is a physical hardcover puzzle book with elaborate puzzles, beautiful illustrations, and an engaging story.
The book centers on the adventures of five children who find themselves trapped inside five fantastic books. Each of these stories (or sub-books) is a miniature puzzle hunt, and the answers to their puzzles combine to form a challenging meta-puzzle. Solving each section advances the story and allows one of the children to escape.
As an example of one of these sub-books, we've made a digital draft of the first sub-book, "Alice in Puzzleland", available for free download here through Dropbox: Alice in Puzzleland Download (~25 MB)
A note from playtesters: On some printers, the draft of the first chapter prints in odd colors. Please only print in black and white!

The book will contain a minimum of 36 puzzles, tied together with a consistent and engaging story.
<figure></figure>
Each of the puzzles in Escape the Book! has an English word or phrase as an answer. Solving the puzzles will require recognizing patterns while thinking logically and creatively.

Multiple hints are included in the book for every puzzle, and hints for the "Alice in Puzzleland" sub-book are included at the bottom of this campaign page.
The sub-books are themed around different works of literature and different puzzle types:
  • "Alice in Puzzleland" - Worm your way through word puzzles in Wonderland! (Try it out for free! Link at the top of this campaign page!)
  • "20,000 Puzzles Under the Sea" - Fill in grid puzzles on the deck of the Nautilus!
  • "A Study in Puzzles" - Noodle past logic puzzles with Sherlock Holmes!
  • "The Puzzle over Innsmouth" - Color in shading puzzles as horror overcomes you.
  • "Dr. Puzzle and Mr. Hyde" - Explore Mr. Hyde's dual nature as you solve puzzles that have two answers each!

With your help, the children will solve the puzzles, open the door, and "Escape the Book!"
