A Danger Threatens the Ponds…

Physalis has returned from her grand journey around the world. Very impressed by her bravery and courage, the king rewards her with a pond, not far from Châtillon-sur-Chalaronne, in her native Dombes. She decides to call it Prêle Pond, after an aquatic plant she particularly likes.

One day, she receives a letter announcing that a great danger threatens her pond, as well as the other ponds of the Dombes…


Since your grand journey, attention has turned to the principality of the Dombes, our land of a thousand ponds.

Unfortunately, many peddlers claim that the ponds are responsible for deadly diseases and want to drain them.

I must warn you, Physalis, a large-scale plot is being hatched, aiming to drain the Dombes!

A new threat, discreet but no less dangerous, has been introduced to pierce and drain all the ponds in our beautiful Dombes!

Personally, I consider the ponds as an invaluable refuge for the biodiversity of fauna and flora, and I see you as the only one capable of thwarting this plot.


Hurry, uncover this threat and save your pond.


A friend.

She Can Only Count on You!

Physalis immediately goes to her pond and, oh no!
Prêle Pond is draining!

The water level has dropped significantly.
Water is flowing out through a gaping hole, and the survival of the fish is at risk!


It’s your turn, can you help Physalis save her pond and uncover the culprit?

Head to the Châtillon-sur-Chalaronne Tourist Office to get the game bag!
