Notes for People with Disabilities:

Boda Borg uses a color guide to assist you in which challenges you choose. All missions are clearly marked. Green Quests are the least physical. A green Quest can be navigated in a wheelchair and any physical challenges will be dexterity only. No strenuous activity. Red Quests are intermediate physical. You'll be using your body and your brain together, but won't be doing anything more strenuous than if you were playing hide-and-seek in a playground. Be ready to climb on a structure or crawl through a tunnel. Black Quests are the most physical. They range from "more than red" to something you might expect to see on a Ninja Warrior show.

The Game   

Game Introduction: A GM will give you a quick recap of how the quests work - you have up to 2 minutes per room to complete a challenge. If you fail, you must leave the challenge and start from the very beginning. With ~17 challenges to choose from, you can attempt as many or as few as you wish!

Flow: Excellent flow - flawless and coherent

The flow is automatically controlled - complete a task, and enter the next room!

Puzzles: Well thought of. Intriguing

Puzzles vary from pushing buttons to climbing on the walls - each adventure is different!

Game Strengths:

Game Weaknesses:

Unless a GM walking around takes pity on you, half of the challenge is figuring out what to do in each adventure.
