Brussels Pursuit

Description

The board used for this game represents the entire experience.brussels exhibition. Participants split up into teams of 2-5 players, and work their way through the different rooms. As they seek out the answers to the questions on the cards distributed by the guide, their powers of observation and teamwork will be put to the test. The questions also help the players to learn more about Brussels and its unique history. What was Anderlecht’s original speciality? Which King lent his name to the great park in Jette? Which emergency telephone number works anywhere in Europe? Who was the first King of the Belgians? For each correct answer, the players earn a sticker which they can stick on their score card. By the end of the game the players should have completed their score cards, and thoroughly explored the exhibition.
