How Does it Work?
Participants must work together as a team to rid their online systems of a virus. Collaborating with one another and putting their puzzle-solving skills to the test, teams must be creative and decisive in order to successfully beat the virus!
Red Alert begins by showing participants a sinister video from a masked representative of the Red Alert team. Each team is presented with a crate and they are told that their computer systems have been hacked. In order to rid their systems of the virus, they must solve every puzzle inside the crate within sixty minutes.
Once the time starts, teams must work fervently to decipher the codes and solve the puzzles. Despite the competition, Red Alert is also collaborative, and a combined effort may be required to completely halt the virus.
Throughout the game, the need to collaborate increases, however, the struggle internally within each team raises enough debate to make this choice more difficult than it may initially appear. The level of collaboration within the event can be discussed in advance with Team Challenge Company in order to customise your team's experience with Red Alert and the challenges it sets.
Rewards and Learning Outcomes
Teams will leave Red Alert having effectively stopped the virus and kept their computer systems safe from harm. They will also have developed core skills and improved working relationships with other members of their team.
Red Alert is an enthralling experiential learning game which enhances participants’ teamwork and problem-solving skills in a fun and engaging environment. The limited timeframe means that teams must work together effectively, communicate efficiently, and develop a strong process which enables them to make important decisions quickly.
As the game progresses, team dynamics are honed as individuals come to appreciate their own abilities and those of others. Teams gradually develop the ability to see a problem and apply creative thinking to solve it. The exciting theme and limited timeframe of Red Alert ensure that everyone remains engaged throughout the activity and all participants will draw on the positive memories of this shared learning experience in the workplace environment.
