Club Drosselmeyer

Treat your team to something totally new – an interactive twist on Tchaikovsky’s classic Nutcracker Suite! It’s part 1940’s radio adventure, part remote escape-room. Your group will gather online to dress in their 1944 best, solve puzzles and work together to save the day. This dazzling production has been profiled in Ars Technica and Oprah Magazine, and won a 2020 Golden Lock award.

Can Your Team Save the Day?

This game is highly collaborative, so it’s great for helping players practice identifying and sharing their strengths within the group. The action is fast-paced and packed with surprises, so everyone needs to communicate and work together as a team to make it to the end.

Participants start off by gathering at our virtual Club Drosselmeyer. Once they break up into teams of two to five players, they must race against the clock in an effort to aid Herr Drosselmeyer and his team. 

Their mission is to help Project Nutcracker and Dr. Clara Stahlbaum rescue Agent Snow Queen and track down the bad guys. Rhett King is trying to steal the top-secret blueprints for Project Nutcracker, and you’re trying to thwart him while keeping the blueprints safe. As the story unfolds, players meet new characters and complete a series of fun challenges. Each choice you make along the way affects the story ending.

Space requirement

This is a remote activity, so strictly speaking no space is necessary. But it’s also a great opportunity for small groups of five or less to gather for in-person “Drosselparties” and play the game together via Zoom. Everyone will need a computer with a speaker. Each player also needs a phone that can call a U.S. phone number. For international phones, players can use WhatsApp or Skype. We’ll provide other options when we send you the game instructions.

Ideal for
  • Improving collaboration and communication
  • Multi-tasking
  • Creative problem-solving
  • Delegating work
  • Careful listening
  • Strategic thinking

While the radio show and puzzles themselves can’t be changed, each game does feature live characters and game masters. We’d be happy to discuss potential customization.

Let's talk.

For more than 25 years, we’ve been helping teams like yours enhance open communication and build team camaraderie. If you want to rekindle the bonds your team once shared, or you’re assembling a new virtual team for the post-pandemic world, we are here to help.
