Game process – this is how the Mars mission works
Astro elephants and dogs in space? Animals on Mars is about entertaining online stimulation and lively team interaction. In sixsix game rounds, the teams have to successfully complete as many missions as possible together in order to transform Mars from a desert planet into a biodiverse paradise. For this, each team member slips into a special role: The captain leads the mission and has the necessary small change prepared, the vet choses the animal astronaut, the pilot buys the rocket and the engineer supplies the team with fuel. The catch? Each mission is a competition against the clock! Can everyone keep their nerve in order to send the animal passengers off on their travels in time?
Reflection in the team
After each sequence, the teams come together to see their results. Which team has the best success strategy? Who economises conscientiously? The final reflection supplies exciting insights about the dynamics amongst the colleagues and shows whether the teams could reach their main goal of colonising Mars.
Communication in the team
Lively communication welds people together! As each team member choses their individual role and own actions, the game demands the teams to jointly coordinate their decisions.
The colleagues vote in parallel breakout rooms in order to strategically make the best decision.
Option to swap roles
Agile work is guaranteed: Animals on Mars is played over six missions. There is the possibility to swap roles in each team. This not only provides variety but also allows each team member to come into contact with the different tasks of the mission. In this way, the team remains agile and changes up the leadership, who is more suited as the captain and who is the better engineer?
Animal, rockets, fuel – everything has its price. But how much will the team spend? How much would they rather take into the next round? Animals on Mars is about strategic agreements and makes sure there is a good atmosphere amongst the colleagues. This breaks the ice, completely virtually.
