Enigma is a popular team event, being very adaptable to nearly all-outdoor venues and group sizes. The simple format quickly gets people working together, achieving results and having fun. Participants (ideally in teams of 4 to 6 people) tackle a series of intriguing team challenges.
Within each activity zone (a cordoned off area) lies a hidden challenge. On entering the activity zone, each team has 20 minutes to overcome the challenge contained within. Points are awarded for success or partial success, in overcoming the challenge.
The Enigma challenge can be completed purely for fun or provide the opportunity to evaluate key business skills.
