The Treasure Hunt Game
The old king is dying and is looking for an heir. We are knights who are competing for the kingdom. The king wants his heir to be a person who can cope with challenging dilemmas and situations. He decided that whoever collects more dilemmas coins will inherit him and become the new king or queen.
In the game, the players are competing for the kingdom. In order to win the kingdom they have to collect dilemma coins. In order to win a coin they have to hold a debate or simulation with another player. The other debater is chosen using a dice. The two debaters have limited time (2 minutes) to propose solutions to the dilemma they drew from the dilemmas card pack. They have to hold a discussion and convince the rest of the players in their solution. When the time ends they have to be silent. The rest of the players start the timer again and within the allocated time discuss the solutions they just heard. They can use Flip Cards in order to evaluate the solutions based on the guidelines detailed in the Flip Cards. When the time ends they have to vote and decide who of the two debaters wins the coin.
The Treasure Hunt game is used to initiate and facilitate an open, engaging and empowering discussion. The game can turn complex intangible topics into simple and addressable. Using the game you can achieve discussion and analyze a case in a constructive and comprehensive fashion very fast. You can develop solutions and lay down an action plan. The game is dynamic. The game rules and the use of a timer keeps the discussion alive and makes it open and constructive.
The game can be used as an independent complete activity or as part of a full scale training plan or an organizational process. The game content (dilemmas, cases and Flip Cards) can be easily customized. You can use content from our content database, collect content using Crowd Source or upload your own dilemmas and cases.

How does it work – Your Move unique methodology
Our Unique methodology is spreading across many global leading corporations. We can turn an abstract topic into concrete and tangible. We succeeded in combining technology with simplicity. We make facilitating discussion of complex topics into something anyone can be successful at. The efficiency of our method, the speed at which players get engaged with the subject at hand is unparalleled. Two hours of a game session can achieve more than a whole day of a workshop. A manager can turn into a coach, someone who develops and empowers employees. A trainer, consultant or HR professional can upgrade his skills easily. We combine Gamification with Crowd wisdom into a powerful method.
Traditional training methodologies rely on allegory and projection. Developing allegories using other domains and projecting key insights on the real world. These methods have some noticeable drawbacks. The projection process requires expertise. An expert facilitator is required to help the trainees project from the other domain to their actual real domain. Projection is even a bigger challenge after the training has ended and the trainee has to project from the other domain to the current specific problems they have to solve.
Our methodology is unique. We create a game based world and embed real world dilemmas and scenarios into that world. We use crowd wisdom based methodologies to collect the relevant content (dilemmas and cases) in order to embed the real world, the practical relevant environment into the game. The result is a unique game that enables the players to deal with real, day to day challenges within the safe environment of the game rules.
Crowd wisdom, engaging the players through crowd source in order to customize the game, gamifying the discussion and using assimilation aids, all create a simple, efficient and powerful process. This process best suits the ever changing world we leave in – it allows for fast, efficient, refreshing custom solutions for each challenge.
The combination of web based data collection, crowd wisdom and tangible game creates a unique ideal solution that can address wide audience. Everyone can identify and engage in the game and develop anticipation during the preparation phase. Our unique capability of creating a tangible game, while maintaining the customization capability creates a different game for every use and every occasion. The game does not require technical infrastructure and removes concerns and roadblocks about lack of technical infrastructure.
Customizing the game content
