For the Christmas party of my freediving club, Active Divers, I made a freediving-themed #KitchenOceanography “escape game” (of sorts). If you are interested to use it for your own purposes, please feel free to contact me for detailed instructions and material lists etc!
This is how it went:
We formed teams with three players in each, and each team came up with a team name, which they wrote on the same cards that they would later also write their “code” on.
Then, everybody got written instructions for three tasks (download here in English or Swedish). Each of the tasks includes an experiment and in the end, one of three answers to a question must be chosen, which ultimately make out a winning code. I had prepared two “hints” for each of the experiments that people could have requested had they gotten stuck, but that did not happen. Clearly, next time we have to up the challenge!
The experiments are not chosen randomly, they all connect to freediving experiences that the Active Divers group had together, and were embedded in a story:
