HUMAN FRONTIER

human_fronier

Are you the puzzle solving kind of type? Do you believe in the power of teamwork when you are facing an imminent danger? Well, then you are the perfect candidate for the Human Frontier experience. Human Frontier is a cooperative street game for 10 players, in which your goal is to defend your country from a sudden threat, by forming an impenetrable net of people, strong enough to protect Poland’s boundaries. Paired and tied together with a specialized rope belt, players have to find their unique spot on the map, while a remote voice, acting as an authority which no one really recognizes, gives them specific orders to follow. Time is also not on your side, so be careful!

But in the end, who are we hiding from?
