Telequest is the downloadable and printable version of our mind challenge adventures. It incorporates neurobics, a form of mental fitness that helps create new neural pathways and strengthen the weak ones.
We created it because we know that sometimes you might not always be able to visit our gym. It is an easy and low-cost way to have fun together, get mental exercise, and socialize in your home or office.
If you want to know more about how it all works, please read on...
1. Download and Print
Starting your first Telequest adventure is easy. Simply select the adventure you would like to play, add it to your cart and checkout. You will then be able to download the .pdf file and print it out. It is ultimately up to you how you want to print them. To save ink and paper, you can print only the puzzle pages and in black and white. However, color prints on card stock will look the nicest. There are also many places (Staples, UPS, Office Depot, FedEx, etc.) to print online and have it delivered or for pick up.
2. Gather Items Needed
You will need the following items:
- A printer and 8.5" x 11" paper
- Pencils or Pens and scratch paper for notes
- A smartphone with an internet connection and the Zappar app downloaded onto it
- One six-sided dice to roll your fate
- Teammates and imagination
- As a bonus, decorate and wear costumes according to the game theme
3. Solve the Challenges
Once you have everything and everyone together, go over the tips and backstory. Now you are ready to solve the first challenge. Each challenge will be different and require out of the box thinking and problem-solving skills. Working together, using your wits, and patience will be required to get through each one.
4. Decide Your Fate
For each challenge we have added additional obstacles in the form of neurobic mind exercises. Neurobics is a way to break mundane habits, form new and strengthen weak neural networks in your brain. The exercises ask you to try doing normal tasks in an unusual way in order to challenge your mind. Roll the dice to determine which one you will need to do. This makes the game more fun and interesting. Feel free to improvise and embellish as you wish.
5. Hints and Answers
Each Telequest adventure has an online area for hints and to check your answers for each challenge. If you are still stuck, you can always contact us at M1ND 6YM for help.
