Beat the Box

At Beat the Box, the game starts as a competition. By solving a series of escape room-like riddles you and your team get one step further. The time is ticking and you have 90 minutes to find a secret code. Halfway through the game, everyone gets stuck and you can't continue with the information your team has. Then it becomes clear that it is not a competition against each other, but that you need each other to beat the time. So work together! Completely in style with the Christmas spirit.

Quickfire Festive

At Quickfire, you and your team determine which assignments you take on. The tablet contains a total of more than 100 team assignments. There are 3 categories namely Active, Creative and Mental. Within these categories, there are 3 levels and the assignments get more and more difficult. Only consider risk and reward. Each assignment will initially cost you points. If you get the assignment right, you will receive more points than it cost. All assignments are dedicated to Christmas and a Christmas outfit is certainly an advantage.
