Teams are stranded on an island. To escape, they must determine the name of a ship, the date, time and horizon it will be passing.
While they wait, they need to adapt to island life to survive. The island is divided into nine zones. In each zone, they are faced with a series of challenges focusing on different aspects of island survival including water, weather, first aid, building shelters, signalling, and the like. Items washed up on the shore will help them in answering the challenges. Completing the challenges successfully will give them vital survival skills.
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 that will assist them in uncovering how they will be rescued. Too little time and they will not gain the vital knowledge they require. Once they leave a zone they cannot return.
Teams eventually determine the name of the ship, and when and where it will be passing. The rescued team with the most points is declared the winner.
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 also requires active communication, and consensus
decision making. Teams have fun learning how to learn together, gaining
knowledge of real survival skills. Limited time and resources put team dynamics
to the test, challenging them to look for opportunity. Each zone allows the
allocation of tasks to specific team members, so they can play to their strengths
for the overall benefit of the team.
Flexible in its approach, Island Survivor can be designed for a one-hour
session, or a more in-depth team development game over 3 hours.
