Urban Pursuit Challenge

When the whole city is your canvas!


Urban Pursuit Challenge is a treasure hunt that is designed using Tablet computers and a very high-end software in the backend.

The city is transformed into a game board where participants navigate from one point of interest to another. They can then meet multiple challenges while discovering the city. It is an ideal activity to cut-off from the usual workplace and to create new bonds between colleagues.

FocusU brings to life this high energy pursuit – through a digital medium, in collaboration with our French partners – Urban Gaming.

Participants are divided into several teams, from 5 to 8 people. Each team is given a tablet. On the tablet, the game is in the form of a map, with many icons of different colours. The participants are geo-localized. To unlock the events, participants must be within twenty meters of the icon. Very easy to use, all the instructions for playing are written on the tablet. The different categories of icons correspond to different types of challenges. For example:

• FUN - Participants will have to take original videos, interview passers-by, recreate dances ...
• PUZZLES - Participants will have to think collectively and find the solution to problems
• STORY – Participants will be led to rediscover unusual anecdotes about the history of the place.
• OBSERVATION – Participants will have to find the point of view of historical postcards.
• CULTURE – Participants will be led to review scenes at their location.

Truly we are limited only by our imagination.

At the end of the activity, when all participants have found all the clues or at the end of the assigned activity time, the team reassembles for the debrief.

A few key parameters:



 
 

The activity can be debriefed around a variety of themes – team work, mental agility, applying outsight, leveraging different talents in a team, adapting to change, looking out for the safety of team members and the importance of fun!

The Urban Pursuit Challenge can be run purely as a team engagement activity or as a team building activity. It can also be used as a way to engage conference groups, as a way for them to discover the city they are in. Whichever way you see it, this is one immersive activity full of thrills and discoveries for your team!
