How to play
The LABESCAPE is well crafter for team work. it was fun, but challenging I loved seeing how my struggled team members come together so fast in just 90 minutes. Perfect for Virtual Teams.
When we moved to remote work due to COVID-19 pandemic. My team was completely got disoriented, and I could not get anything done on time. I reached out to ENCADE for help, and we did the lab escape twice with a facilitator. My team is now on-track and finally functional again.
I was curious about the concept of virtual team building exercises, and decided to try it with my team. in my mind it was just a game, but man I was wrong. It was very challenging, and I never seen my team communicate and collaborate together like this before. It transformed my team from a group of individuals into a united team. I wrote this testimonial two weeks after we took the session, and I can still see the difference it made to my team. I am definitely doing this in regular basis with my team.
I am not a technical savvy and my team is the same. As an HR manager, I was interested to try it as a potential HR tool. It looks promising, but I am used to traditional HR styles, so I decided to give it a try with my team before I introduce it to the company.It was not a game, it was a true simulation experience. It was not like any team building exercise I did before.I already recommended to all managers in my company.

What is a Virtual Escape Room?
A virtual escape multi-players game designed for a team-building simulation to improve team-work, communication, collaboration, problem solving and my other team relevant skills.It is ideal for virtual teams.
What is the rate of completing the game?
The game is designed to complete between 60-90 depending on the team performance.Novice player and team members that new to each others will likely not complete game on-time first time.In addition, there are multi-stages to each game, so each stage increase the difficulty level and enable team efficiency at total different level.Each stage is played as a separate session.
How long does the whole experience take?
Depending on the game, the number of players, and the team stage you choose to play. Typical timeline for a game is between 50 to 90 minutes.For Example: LABESCAPE with Novice Players will take around 90 minutes to complete. We had teams complete the game in 40 minutes, but these teams are advanced teams, and also played the game before, and this was their tune-up session.
Can I play more than one game?
In fact we recommend that you and your team continue to play at least once every quarter. These are called team-tune up sessions.
Will other people be in the room with us?
No. These virtual rooms are private to your team, and only visible to people who are invited to play in this session.
