|The main purpose of Hells Bells is to provide participants with a fun, provocative and challenging game of substance, with visual impact to trigger vivid memories and inspirational thought long after the event.
Teams enter a room and are faced with apparent chaos. All the components of the game are laid out on team tables.
There is one goal that the whole team is working towards. No team can achieve any significant result if they work in isolation. For every challenge within the game, there is invariably more than one route to the solution.
Hells Bells highlights the benefits of working together rather than individually or in separate departments.
It is the ideal game for addressing team communication issues, project management skills and exploring team dynamics. A uniquely different, non-competitive team development event, the participants have to construct a series of mechanical sculptures that must be correctly aligned to automatically enact the discovered story, pulling together all of the inherent cryptic clues and riddles.
Hells Bells encompasses a wide range of skills and disciplines including:
General knowledge, research ability, genealogy (family tree), logic, analysis, mathematics, lateral thinking, mechanics, construction skills, spatial awareness, creativity, imagination, word-craft, storytelling, music, costume making, acting, organisational skills, negotiation, diplomacy, communication and especially listening.
Every challenge has a part to play in obtaining the final, overall solution.
There are 12 brightly coloured 'mechanical' sculptures that are initially in their component parts. The sculptures are allocated to specific teams to build from stylised line drawings and other associated information. Additional relevant tasks are incorporated for larger groups.
Information packs contain a series of clues and riddles leading the teams to the order and layout of the sculptures and to the single answer the game demands.
The finale is immensely satisfying for the participants, resulting in a genuine, well-earned sense of achievement.
All the sculptures trigger each other in an ingenious chain reaction, allowing the participants physically to see and have ownership of their part in the ‘big picture’, thereby bringing everyone together.
Hells Bells can last from 2 hours or more, depending on how it is managed.
To assemble and run Hells Bells requires an unobstructed, level, indoor floor space 7m(23') x 8.5m(27' 11") by 2.3m(7'6") height. This is the area required for the setting out of the assembled sculptures at the finale. THERE IS NO COMPROMISE ON THESE DIMENSIONS!!
