Teambuilding / Conference Ice breaker
Outwit the customs
Experience what it feels like to be a smuggler – driving (rented) cars in a fantastic setting: the old smugglers’ routes around Damme. Find your merchandise or earn it by completing certain tasks. And then get your butter, gin and cigars across the border with the customs officers on your heels! This game reveals true stories and is full of tricks, traps, deceit and secrecy.
To smuggle or not to smuggle
Take one car and five inconspicuously dressed smugglers per team, a sizeable portion of local history, lots of fun, a large measure of competition... et voilà: the smuggling route. A game that will stay in your employees’ memory for a long time.
Everything starts on the Grote Markt in Damme. Old Jozef Zaman tells about the difficult times that smugglers had in the 1950s. He divides your participants into gangs and gives them clear instructions: pick up contraband in the Netherlands and cross the border unnoticed with the butter, jenever and cigars in the boot. Then sell the products here to the right contact for a good profit. During the ride, local inhabitants give valuable hints and new orders. However, many shrewd customs officers patrol the streets. You need to watch out!
This teambuilding concept is also possible in the Westhoek or at Domein Bokrijk.
