Mission to Mars: An Agile Adventure


Work Together to Launch a Rocket to Mars! This innovative board game challenges players to build and launch a rocket to Mars. Players form Agile teams, collaborating through “Sprints” to complete important tasks. The game tracks each team's score, along with other metrics used in Agile, such as “Velocity”. In order to win the game and successfully launch your rocket, your team will have to demonstrate characteristics of actual successful Agile teams.
