Intercultural Minefield is originally a tabletop game and now available online, where players start their international businesses without «being interculturally trained». As they «walk across the intercultural minefield», they can be either intelligent and lucky enough to survive or they risk to be blown up by a «cultural mine», unless there is an «intercultural consultant» around! They can earn huge amount of money or they will lose everything and have to start from scratch.

The game can fabulously serve both as a teaching tool and as a selling point for a client you would like to persuade to buy your training. You’ll pay it back really fast! 

Available in English and in French

This game is a “real life experience” reminding us that to be successful in international business, we must know about other cultures.

This game allows us to see different angles of the learning process in the intercultural field, as well as risks that are sometimes taken unwittingly. Thank you for the opportunity to discover this, Maria.

The Intercultural Minefield game is a crafty , clever and beautifully designed intercultural game which can bring quite a lot of fun and colour to your online intercultural training sessions. When stepping on the mines, the players will realise in a playful way that, while there are possible ways of dealing with tricky situations in international business encounters, most of the times there is not just one possible way of handling them. And, last but not least, the game will show the participants that, even when wé are culturally competent,, cultural incidents can still occur at all times when we don’t watch out or least expect it.
