Shipwrecked, Escape from Sentosa!

“Can you lead your crew away from the deserted island before starvation sets in? Work as a team and find out!”

The Play Nation events team was engaged by our client to designed a customized real life escape game for their team retreat! The brief from the client requested a program that will allow all 55 participants to play simultaneously in an experience lasting 2 to 4 hours before ending with a group dinner at a restaurant of their choice.

The setting of the game puts the participants as the sole survivors of the shipwrecked Sentosa Express cruise line. They have limited food and water supplies and need to quickly find the Quest Items located in hidden locations across Sentosa Island in order to make their escape and find their way to a sumptuous dinner!

To encourage more interaction between the participants and the client leadership team, the Play Nation events team invited directors from the client’s team to join us in the event as special characters that hands out additional clues to teams to help them progress in the game.

The price of additional clues is set at an affordable, and slightly embarrassing, song and dance performance as determined by the directors!

After an eventful and action packed afternoon, the participating teams finally gathered in the final checkpoint for dinner and the prize presentation.

The atmosphere was wonderful as teams shared their exploits for the day and dissected the puzzles and their respective solutions. After a hard days play, the food and drinks flowed freely and the spirits was high!

To complete the experience, a special debrief session was conducted by the game designer who explained the different puzzles played by the respective teams as well as their solutions, as each team attempted different puzzles.

Finally, prizes sponsored by Play Nation as well as the client was presented to the top 3 teams, while the team finishing last was given the opportunity to present a song and dance to the amusement of everyone else.

We had a boatload of fun hosting the client, and we sure hoped they enjoyed the day’s activity as well!
