Teams stranded on an island must pass through 9 zones to passing ship to be rescued.
What is Escape the Island?
In this team bonding game, you are stranded on a desert island and must signal down a rescue ship. While waiting to be saved, you must adapt to island life by completing a series of iPad based challenges and puzzles.
The island is separated into 9 zones, each zone has a series of challenges. The challenges are based on different aspects of surviving on the island including water, weather, first aid, shelter building and signalling. Items will wash up on the shore of the island, these will help to complete challenges. Teams need to gain enough knowledge of each aspect in order to survive. Too much time in a zone, and they will lose time to gain knowledge of other survival techniques. Too little time, and they will not gain the vital knowledge they require. Once they leave a zone they cannot return.
How can it help your team?
To survive the island teams must develop a strategy and apply it with agility. Knowing when to move to the next zone and when to linger requires active communication and decision making. Teams have fun learning together and gaining knowledge of real survival skills. Creative thinking and problem-solving are required as individuals must play to their strengths for the benefit of the team. Limited time and resources puts team dynamics to the test, challenging them to look for opportunity.
