Weekend Warrior: Survival Games! @ Maine Primitive Skills School
Oct 13 – Oct 14 all-day
Weekend Warrior: Survival Games! @ Maine Primitive Skills School | Augusta | Maine | United States

We are excited to announce this new and unique offering. Experience a survival scenario where you (the Survivor) are brought through challenges, tests of skills, and explorations by seasoned guides who will work your edge and bring your skills to the next level through this interactive adventure. Participants will choose their own level of difficulty before embarking on this unique learning experience.

Limit: 12 people

Cost: $120

Here’s how the game is played:

After an introduction into the basics of survival, general safety practices and rules of the game, the survivors will be introduced to the game scenario. The game scenario is a fictional event in which a group of survivors were forced to survive and sustain themselves over a short period of time. A bag of survival gear and a list of game objectives will be given to each participant.

The goal of the game is to acquire as many survival points as possible. Survival points can be gained by realizing game objectives within the given time limits (e.g. setting up tarp or boiling water), complete additional missions/tasks from game events or by survival game points obtained from chance cards. These points will be added up at the end of the game to determine your Overall Survival Potential.

Difficulty Levels:

Open to all experience levels, and requires you to choose from three difficulty levels before the game begins: Rookie, Warrior, Veteren. Difficulty levels dictate several variables such as amount of starting wildcoin, starting gear bag, severity of game events, etc.

Rookie: Little to no experience with survival skills. Watching Naked and Afraid, or Bushcraft YouTube videos doesn’t count

Warrior: Have some survival experience, or grew up hunting/fishing, etc.

Veteran: Feeling lucky?

All participants must be physically fit enough to walk 5 miles over uneven terrain, and overall in sound health.
