How it works

Each team plays the crew of a pirate ship arriving with a hull full of items to trade. Their goal is to accumulate treasure by building relationships with other traders in port while using their guile to gather vital market information.

The game takes place in four cycles, over an in-game four years. Each year commences with teams trading and ends with them returning to port to collect the bounty on their goods. As the game progresses, teams develop relationships with other crews and share gained knowledge.

A quick but decidedly cunning experience where teams must negotiate to maximise their returns. Although it is competitive, the most successful teams are those that collaborate with others to build win-win outcomes while at the same time focusing on their bottom-line results. We wrap up with a review, where winning strategies are shared and any crossover that can apply to the workplace.

Learning Outcomes


Improving collaboration across a team is probably the number one way we can help to improve a team’s performance. If you don’t communicate, you can’t collaborate. We start with communication and get it flowing, then get everyone working together. We have found that creating long-term change in the way teams collaborate can be as simple as getting them into a creative frame of mind. Whether the team task is to work together or compete is up to you.

Fun and Social

Choosing from our range of fun and social experiences is sometimes all it takes to get teams working together in new and more effective ways. These light and engaging experiences are great for energising a team or warming up conference delegates. They can help familiarise new team members or get well-acquainted ones working in innovative ways.


Our experiences to identify and bring out leadership qualities revolve around either creative and collaborative practices or competitive challenges. These tried and tested techniques delve deep into team dynamics and how individuals respond to them. We have also developed a core set of highly effective interactive business games. Our interactive games mimic real-world scenarios but with a bit of fun thrown in for good measure.
