We believe any good team building event should be super simple to learn, provide interesting decisions and engage people quickly so they’ll want to work together. This game is a case in point. It’s a fantastic recipe for creating real social connections and excitement within large groups.  

The setup: NASA has announced a new mission to explore Mars, but this time there’s a new twist – recent scientific breakthroughs make it possible to take animals along. Your mission is to help transform Mars from a cold, lifeless desert to a paradise of biodiversity. 

Once your group is divided into small teams, each participant takes on a specific role. The Vet chooses an animal. The Pilot must purchase a suitably-sized rocket. The Engineer buys fuel. The Captain is responsible for that team’s mission, and must allocate funds to make it happen. Naturally, there’s a time pressure element as well. 

The game plays out over five missions. While everyone plays an individual role and chooses their own actions, success requires effective planning, strategy and coordination as a team. All in all, this is an exciting and engaging way to get your people chatting, cheering and working together like never before.
