Race Around the World - Festive
Teams discover festive facts from around the world as they race through the night delivering presents.
how it works
Participants connect in an online breakout room and elect a ‘Santa’ while the others take on the role of Elves in the game app. The objective is to virtually race through the night delivering toys to children in as many countries as possible before dawn breaks. Teams complete festive themed challenges to earn carrots that keep their reindeer flying. The Elves can see the challenges but can’t input the answers. The Santas can input answers and take photos but don’t know the challenges until guided by the Elves. A bonus crate of carrots awaits the team who delivers the ideal set of toys. A countdown clock on each of the six continent stages maintains the pace. Final scores can be converted to support a selected charity.
‘Race Around the World – Festive Edition’ allows remote workers to break out from siloed roles, interact with colleagues and bond on an informal level. The team start by planning despite a lot of unknowns and adopt an agile approach as the game unfolds. An enquiring mind, creative thinking and keen investigative skills are required to gather the information and to co-ordinate actions to solve challenges. The game design encourages all participants to engage in active listening and clear, concise communication; ensuring participants sharpen their online communication skills. Team members bond over a shared objective and find enjoyment while escaping routine on a virtual trip around the world with a festive theme.
