Across the Border

You’ve never been closer to the border, or closer to getting caught. Tonight you will dodge patrols and natural perils as you try to cross over. With the help of a local guide, and a lot of luck, your journey might be successful.

This is a game about covertly crossing a border. One player will be the local guide and the rest will be characters trying to reach the other side. You play it while going for a hike, ideally in nature, but you can also play it on city streets. The local guide should read these rules in advance and print out the conversation cards.

Players: One local guide to facilitate and 3 to 10 border crossers
Material: Yarn, scissors, printed Conversation Cards
Length: 45 to 90 minutes
