The Theme is Around the World

Get ready for a global adventure as you travel (virtually, of course!) around the world from South America to Australasia. Along with a small team of travel mates, you will face challenges in each country, earning Travel Credits to purchase your onward journeys.

Which team will cover the most ground and win the race?

What you will do? 

In teams you will embark on a virtual globe-trotting trip around the world, visiting 22 countries across 40,000 virtual miles while putting your teamwork, collaboration and creativity skills to the test!

Upon arrival in each country, players have to work together to unlock tasks. Starting in Argentina, each country contains a series of tasks & challenges to earn enough travel credits to make it to their next destination.

Before moving on, teams will have the chance to guess their next destination from a series of cryptic clues. The team of globe trotters who guess correctly will be rewarded with valuable bonus travel credits!

Challenges range from performing the Haka in New Zealand and demonstrating Kung-Fu skills in China, to exploring well-known landmarks on Google Maps to uncover the answers to questions. Keep an eye on the clock, though – travel credits are earned not only through completing tasks but for distance travelled too. The team with the most travel credits at the end will be crowned the winners!

There’s something for everyone.  How far can you make it across the globe from Argentina to New Zealand in the given time?
