The Scenario

Enjoying a daytime excursion while on a cruise in the South Pacific, a group of passengers sets out to explore a coral island. It doesn’t take long before they discover a long stretch of inviting sand. So they decide to take a break - and they drift off to sleep.

Two hours later, they awake just in time to see their cruise ship sail into the horizon. Stranded with only limited supplies, the group is left to draft a survival plan.

You’re officially Marooned!

As night approaches, can your team make a plan for survival and hope to be rescued?
