Frequently asked questions
Is Panic Mode! suitable for work?
Yes. Although Panic Mode! utilizes humor in the cards, all cards are suitable for work. If players experience any discomfort during game play, we highly suggest discussing this after play.
What can I expect my team to learn from playing Panic Mode?
The primary benefit of Panic Mode! is to host a light-hearted team-building event that leads directly into meaningful discussion, realizations, and change. Panic Mode! will not provide a thorough lesson in IT Disaster Recovery, but it can teach teams the fundamentals of what they need to think about, identify some common pitfalls, and help to explore how different roles work together.
I'm not sure if I can receive the game in my location. Can you help?
I'm not sure, but I will certainly try! Please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or using the contact form here and we'll see if we can sort it.
Can my team play Panic Mode remotely?
Yes! Although Panic Mode is a cooperative card game that plays well in person, there are several ways to capture the benefits remotely:
1. Have one person act as the reader. Remove the time limit and read through 88 cards to approximate the 25 minute time limit.
2. Simply choose random cards and discuss them. Nearly every card has a lesson in IT Disaster Recover and a pop culture reference. Can you find both of them?
3. Send the 20 role-specific cards to their roles on your team. Have them write their own cards or take turns reading from these cards.
How many duplicate cards are in Panic Mode?
None. Panic Mode includes 250 unique cards.
