    A captivating, fun and educational team game based on research and observation
    1h30 | min. 6; max. 50 participants | Available in French, Dutch and English

    The eB! Pursuit game implicates the entire exhibition. Participants, split into small teams, travel through the different rooms. Searching for the answer to a question given to them on a card by the game organiser, their observational skills and ability to work as a team will be put to the test. The questions will help them to discover Brussels and its special charms. For each correct answer, players will be rewarded with a sticker to add to their game card. At the end of the game, participants will have completed their card and actively discovered every corner of the exhibition.

    This game helps to develop the children's general knowledge as well as reading ability, observational and research skills and their ability to work as a team.
