About the Event
Time is running out. Someone is selling secrets that are getting our most trusted agents killed. With only 48 hours, can you utilize your SpyCraft skills to catch this traitor in the act and build a case against him before he escapes? You will work together in small teams utilizing your issued equipment to collect evidence in a live interactive environment!
Phase 1: Skills Training Participants will be provided hands-on training in lock picking, situational awareness, communications, observation, and reporting in a classroom setting. After training is complete, teams will be sent to their safe site to plan operations.
Phase 2: Live Interactive Game Participants will utilize a dossier and all issued equipment to solve a true reenactment of the case. Working in small elements, all participants will apply various skills that were learned in the skills training phase. Participants will navigate the live interactive environment while competing against all other teams. The game is played with actors with unknown loyalties, it is a "choose your own adventure" in how you interact. Decision made while in the scenario will potentially have resonating second and third-order effects throughout the game.
