The Defiant Box Challenge

slides resources videos picks & gear availability games press bio

The name of this contest is an homage to the classic 1958 film starring Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier in which two individuals make their escape to freedom while shackled to one another. They must learn to work together if they are to survive.

Can you handle such a challenge? In this contest, you and a teammate have five minutes to open a series of locks (presented in identical pairs) and escape from handcuffs... but the cuffs are the LAST thing you’re allowed to pick.

Can you coordinate your movements? Can you reach for your own tools without disturbing your partner's movements? Can you avoid killing each other?!?
