Challenge of The Gordian Box

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


Escape the Case is proud to offer, Masterminds, the Gordian Box. This Escape Case is designed to mimic the metaphor of Alexander the Great’s, Gordian Knot. An Ancient Greek parable that stresses the value of creativity to meet challenges; which is often interchanged with the modern business cliche Think Outside the Box. Hence, we created this Gordian Box Challenge to signify the values of looking at problems differently, and utilizing resources in creative ways; all in terms of teamwork and corporate success.

This high-tech challenge makes team building fun for everyone, all from the comfort of their seats.  It combines critical thinking, adaptive problem solving, 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!

In the end, all the teams will share codes and rally together to break into the final reveal case. This ending collaboration between teams underscores they are truly one big team, and inside the case, teams will find a reward for their success. Each person will go home with their very own Gordian Box to signify the value of team work, and to have fun with the people they work with.
