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.
