A game focusing on cooperation, support, competition and conflict.
LinkXs is a game developed for groups to practice with collaboration, personal leadership, communication and the distribution of available resources. The game is all about skills and attitude, not about knowledge.
LinkXs is played in groups of eight to twelve people. Larger groups can play multiple games at the same time. The duration of the game, including explanation and evaluation(s), is 2½ hours.
A LinkXs game consists of 4 puzzles and associated constructions. Each group is divided into 4 teams. Each team receives puzzle pieces and construction pieces. The aim of the game is to complete the puzzle and its construction as quickly as possible. But there are of course rules, so this is not as obvious as it seems. There is also interdependence. Teams need each other to solve their own puzzle.
Which themes can be addressed by playing LinkXs?
- Collaboration within and between teams and from different locations
- Communicate openly, honestly and clearly
- Show personal leadership
- Switch between thinking and doing
- Collaborate vs. competition
- Share successes
The game evokes recognizable and natural behavior. Participants get the opportunity to reflect and become aware of their own behavior. This reflection provides valuable insights for their daily practice.
