The Gordian Box

You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.
~ Plato

 

Escape the Case is poised to deliver Masterminds: The Gordian Box. This Escape Case theme plays off Alexander the Great’s Gordian Knot, an Ancient Greek parable that stresses the value of creativity to meet challenges. No wonder the Gordian Knot is often interchanged with the modern business cliché Think Outside the Box. Our Gordian Box challenge brings to light the values of looking at problems differently, and utilizing resources in creative ways — all in terms of teamwork and organizational success.

This high-tech challenge is all inclusive fun, and everyone takes part from the comfort of their seats.  The game requires critical thinking, adaptive problem solving and includes alarms, videos, codes, ciphers, music, and pattern recognition. Ultimately, teams are put to the test to unlock box after box as they work their way towards the great reveal cases, the final challenge.

No team wins until they combine their results with others. They must share codes and rally together to crack open the final reveal case. This grand collaboration among teams underscores to the entire group that they are truly one big team. Inside the final case, teams will reap the rewards for their overall success.

All participants receive an individual Gordian Box to signify each members part in the team success. It’s also a lasting reminder of the fun they had working with their team beyond the office.
