Do you and your friends have the skills that are needed to survive an apocalypse?
If you think about any decent post-apocalyptic movie, there is always a team of people with a range of different attributes that come into good use throughout the feature.
So, you need to think about the skills of yourself, your family and friends if you’re going to survive the wasteland.
Choosing your post-apocalyptic team
Are you an intellectual? Are you strong? Do you have good technical skills? Or are you a survival enthusiast?
All of the above and more are elements that are needed in a post-apocalyptic survival team if you are to stand a chance at becoming a founder of the new world.
In apocalypse films, we usually see these elements split into a number of roles. The only question is, which role are you? And do you have people that you can count on who can fill any skills that you’re lacking?
The leader of your post-apocalyptic survival team needs to be someone who has an understanding of the entire group and can bring out the best in everyone so that you can work together effectively and make decisions.
Leaders are usually a bit of an all-rounder with their survival skills and need to be brave or conclusive enough to think of and voice a good strategy that considers all options and everyone is happy to follow. The Heavy
Every team needs a strong man or woman to do the heavy lifting. The apocalypse brings with it many hazards and adversities that require nothing but pure brute force to overcome.
Being able to work out the best way around a problem or technical difficulty is where the more intellectual members of the group come into their prime. They observe, calculate and conquer using their minds, experience and extensive knowledge of their field.
In an apocalyptic wasteland, times can get hard and tempers can get short. The survivor is the member of your group that refuses to give up or succumb to negativity. This positivity is what drives the group forward when it seems like everyone is doomed!
Perhaps the most essential cog in this well-oiled machine, the sacrifice is your Hodor. This brave person is much like the survivor until they don’t…
This is a loved and usually hilarious member of the team, but it’s that level of purity that makes them the sacrifice in the first place. Bold and hopeful, they plunge into certain doom in order to save their friends or family – usually to an unspeakable end.
Would your squad survive the apocalypse?
If the above sounds like a fitting match to your squad, then you may stand a chance at surviving the apocalypse yet – no matter what form it takes!
If you’re itching to take it a step further, you don’t have to create a genetic monster or zombie creating disease, you can now take on the challenge in an immersive apocalypse experience.
There are so many different apocalypse-themed challenges out there where you can have a taste of what it would be like if you were actually faced with the end of the world, it’s hard to choose where to start!
Nuclear apocalypse theme game: Vault17
Time Race houses a unique challenge based on an apocalyptic nuclear winter where you are a survivor…
It was 30 years ago that the first bomb dropped. The war lasted just 18 days.
You were lucky…you made it to Vault 17. In the Vault, generations have been born and raised in the dark. Vault 17 has become your home.
That was at least until today. The Vault’s final power core has decayed so far that the Vault scientists believe that there’s only 60 minutes of power left. If you and your team don’t take the risk and make it to the wasteland, the Vault will become your tomb, as the Vault door is too heavy to manually operate.
SURVIVAL RATE 30%
If you think that you’ve got what it takes to take on the challenge, you can get involved here.
