Beat the Box is a worldwide corporate team building phenomenon. It brings you the same intensity and interaction as an escape room challenge, but can be brought directly to your meeting room or team away day.
The game begins with a critical video calling delegates to action. Each team is given a locked metal box with which they must crack a code to open. After opening the box, they are then faced with several more smaller locked boxes and interlinked puzzles which they need to solve.
Each level of the team challenge is designed to subtlety encourage a ‘one team’ approach. Teams quickly learn that they need to become a problem-solving unit and grasp their role in the bigger picture by sharing critical information to other teams. A sense of urgency is heightened as teams must work against the clock and cross communicate to crack the final electronic code. The clock is stopped and teams celebrate their shared achievement.

It offers an informal context for players to discover their own skills, respect the talents of others and explore conflict resolution.
