The game begins with introducing the scenario.
Teams are household members who must build homes to shelter their families by making decisions about how to use limited construction materials in the restricted land they have available.
Shelters will be exposed to heavy rainfall and flooding, earthquakes and strong winds.
Families lacking proper shelter find themselves in a state of insecurity, which is not good.
Each household (team) has a task of protecting its members from the impacts of different hazards.
The game consists of 3 rounds: each round represents one year.
At the end of each year, for every family member knocked out of the circle (“left unprotected”), the household gets one “insecurity point”.
The winning team is the family with fewest insecurity points by the end of the 3rd year.
Acquire knowledge about safe construction, and specifically the concept of bracing, for improving the structural stability of constructions.
Introduces awareness and knowledge which is important to act quickly and effectively.
