Try to speak without getting confused, because this game can mess up your brain.

● In this game, participants will be divided into two batches and will be given a topic.

● The team members should be able to guess the circuit within the given time.
As time plays a crucial role in this game, the team that takes least amount of time to complete the circuit will be declared as winners.

Want to go on a quest and recreate the uncharted? Then this is your forte!!

● With a team of 5 , this event would provide an ample scope to bring out the hidden "Indiana Jones" in you.

● The first round is the riddle round , where a participant from every team picks up a chit kept in a bowl at random. This chit consists of a riddle that has to be solved within the stipulated time. The teams that take the least time proceeds to the next round.

● The second round consists of a number of marking flags, out of which a flag contains the QR code that discloses the location to the next round. The team finding this proceeds to the next round.

● The third round proves to be a real fix .Each team is provided with some clues and they have to fill in the blanks left on the venue with the missing pieces, the team that does this in the minimum time paves a way to the final round.

● The final round is like a rapid fire round. The participant is seated and a question is asked. With the team’s assistance when the question is answered , the volunteer gives a number to the team . This continues till the 5 questions are done ,and once the team obtains the 5 numbers and arranges it according to the timely instructions , it is taken as the final title winner.
