The anatomy of a (great!) Challenge

Making a Mission is as easy as 1-2-3.

Think of creating a Challenge in three parts: you have your appetizer (your Pre-Challenge information),  your main course (the Challenge) and your dessert (Post-Challenge information).  Before you dive into making your Challenges though, we recommend spending some time outlining what content you’d like to include and what Challenge types are available! You can use this free thematic worksheet to help you lay out your Challenges.

In the Pre-Challenge information, pique your player’s curiosity with a taste of what they are about to learn! Don’t forget to include a photo (Fun fact: according to an article in Psychology Today, research indicates that visual cues help us to better retrieve and remember information)!

Protip: Check out great open-sourced websites like Pexels or Unsplash for free images.

In the Challenge portion, try viewing your content from a fresh angle. Can you include images, sounds or an AR catch to get your message across? Not sure if your content is “readable”? Check out Grammarly’s insights to assist you in your writing.

Protip:  Add a variety of Challenge markers for an optimal experience.

In the Post-Challenge, you can include further learning, your favorite fun fact, or even a simple congratulations!

And, as always, don’t forget to have fun with your content!

What are you excited to share with your players?
