Backpackers is a fun and exciting group building activity, designed to test decision-making skills and collaboration against the clock.
Each team takes on the role of an international backpacker; planning routes, managing their money, choosing work options and deciding which challenges are to be undertaken and when. Graphics on the big screen support and enhance a personalised briefing and allow progress and scores to be updated live throughout the game.

Backpackers depart from London and travel to the destinations on our world map. Each team is given a pack containing an introduction to the game and how it works, a travel timetable, passport, SOS vouchers and US Dollars. The game lasts for 80 minutes, with each minute representing a day in the life of a modern backpacker. Teams nominate roles for their members including a team leader and a runner who, wearing their backpack, communicates their team’s decisions to an adjudicator. Effective teamwork is vital in this game to maximise point scoring and achieve a winning team performance.
