THE MYSTERY OF THE AMBER CHAMBER
Lithuania is famous from ancient times for Lithuanian gold amber.
Already 13 thousands years ago, people in Lithuania had amber and
were known for creating different goods from it and we especially
recognized for amber jewelry.
The most famous amber piece Amber Chamber is considered to be the
8th Miracle of the World. It was created in 1701-1709 in Prussia
(now Kaliningrad county near the Baltic Sea, part of Russia) and
in 1716 was presented as a gift from the King of Prussia to the
Russian Czar Peter the Great. The rooms walls were decorated by
inlaid and inscribed amber.
Amber Chamber disappeared during chaos of the World War II. Nobody
knows what happened to it by this day.

Aim of the Game: to collect the Amber Chamber, which is broken

Process: Spectacular beginning with actors personages generates
gripping atmosphere in the conference hall. Facilitators of the
game announce that a trustworthy company (Your company) is assigned
a very important mission to find one of the Lithuanias treasures,
the Amber Chamber. The Amber Chamber mysteriously disappeared from
Lithuania during the World War II. Now we know that this treasure
is hidden in the area where the game is happening and is broken
in 27 separate pieces (boxes). The teams need to search the area
and find all the Amber Chamber pieces; otherwise the teams will
be imprisoned in Lithuania forever.
Waiters (actors) distribute colorful signs to all group members.
Then, everyone finds their color friends and a group of (number)
people is divided into smaller teams. When the teams are formed,
the game participants are handed all the necessary equipment such
as maps, transportation, safety tools, paintball markers, etc. As
teams decide who wants which piece of equipment, they assign roles
to each other. 3 teams are further subdivided into 12 smaller teams
(4 sub-teams in 1 color team). As the equipment is spread out in
a team, team members need to decide who is going to be Eagles
Analyzers, Tigers - Fighters, Beavers Brokers and Spiders
Finders of the team. When the roles are assigned and the equipment
distributed, every team goes to its workstation and is introduced
to the list of assignments and start to develop the strategy of
the game. Everybody knows that there are 27 boxes of Amber Chamber
and every team tries to find as much as bigger number of the boxes
(Every team gets a list hints and tips which should help them to
stay on the right way to their goal. The participants should choose
their own way how to search Amber Chamber boxes using methods and
- Use your brain
- Trust your team
- Play safely
- Remember the mission
- Play as a team

Important is that all 4 sub-teams of one color team should work
together and help each other and communicate very clear for good
result. During this process, many unexpected events (changes) can
happen such as the team runs out of gas when traveling to the required
destination or the telephone connection disappears. During these
emergencies, the informal leaders appear in a team. Also, the groups
develop the feeling of the team as fast decisions need to be made
and problems solved.
Each group has supervisors delegated by event organizers Funny
Bunnies - who coordinate that the participants would closely follow
the game rules and complete the game successfully.
The game ends when all 27 pieces (boxes) of the Amber Chamber are
discovered. All groups bring pieces they find during the game together.
Unexpected task for the all teams together - unlock the boxes and
to make new creation to put Amber Chamber puzzle together. Every
