Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
Competencies – Leadership, communication, planning, problem solving, teamwork
This VP app is popular with organisers who want to see how the team performs under a bit of pressure!
This activity has the goal of seeing how people react in challenging circumstances and how this can reflect how they react to challenging work situations.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes challenges the team to defuse a series of bombs, with each player taking turns to enter the bomb room and defuse the increasingly complex devices. However, the player is completely reliant on their teammates, who are in possession of the bomb manuals, to guide them through the task.
Teams are forced to collaborate in clever ways in order to improve and eventually start to successfully defuse the bombs.
This activity is cognitively challenging so we usually recommend pairing it with a lighter VR experience to allow participants to re-energise!
