A step-by-step guide to play the game


Choose a dangerous situation and enter the maze from this point.


When you reach a circle (can be an action or decision), do what the circles ask you to do.

  • F.ex. in case you chose fire as your dangerous situation, the circle could be: stay low to the ground, because there is more oxygen over there.

If you reach an intersection, then you will have to solve a question.

  • F.ex. Is it a good idea to throw water on the fire? Based on your answer you will have to go one way or the other.

At the end you reach the right side of the panel, where you will find the correct mitigating action. You can check if you were correct by opening the small doors at the right side of the mitigating action and see if the symbol corresponds to the one of the dangerous situation.

Extra game information

  • On the left side you see dangerous situations f.ex. fire, walking barefoot through sharp objects... , all marked with a unique symbol.
  • On the right side you see mitigating actions with closed doors. Behind the doors you find the corresponding symbols to the dangerous situations.
  • In between you see a maze. While passing through the maze you will have to make some choices and solve questions, which will decide the direction you take (circles and intersections).


You can adapt the dangerous situations and mitigating actions to the local context.
