Relive the historical adventures of the greatest navigators who discovered “the Americas” and brought new fruits back to Europe.
Like Magellan (who was the first to have circumnavigated the globe) or Eriksson, Columbus, Zheng He, Vespucci,
Vasco da Gama, Cartier and Cortes, you will play to "the hunt" of the fruits from the "New World"
before ending the game with a collective tasting session and/or the preparation of a dessert with the collected fruits!
Tomato evokes Italy and its pizza, chocolate is the favorite sweetness of the world, banana is the most eaten fruit. Yes, but ... Before the discovery of the Americas, the "old Europe" was unaware of the very existence of hundreds of fruits!
Everyone likes to learn while playing and this fun game can be used as an educational tool for the teachers and the parents.
A human being remembers only 10% of what he reads, about 20 % of what he sees but 90% of what he experiments.
That is why I have created the educational board games Xplor fruits, Xplor food, and Xplor civilizations.
In this time where most of the children are addicted to gaming, board games help to put away their phones.
Everyone likes to learn while playing and these games can be used as educational tools for the teachers and the parents.
Play, Learn and Connect with The Xplor Games
Our games are all based on the same mechanics of putting yourselves in the"boat" of a famous European explorer during the 15th and 16th century. Like them and only after a long and difficult journey, you are going to explore and discover the wonderful resources and civilizations of the "New World".
This family board game is a unique tool for the parents/teachers and is particularly adapted to the preschool and primary students
It's important for children to eat fruits and vegetables, but getting them to actually do so can be a challenge...
Xplor fruits provide fun and simple ways to help children (and adults!) learn about the taste and flavor, in order to give them more confidence and curiosity to try new things.
This transdisciplinary game is also about exploring food through the senses while learning about history and geography.
Xplor vegetables is particularly adapted for playing at home or at school equipped with a kitchen.
In this game, we are playing in the same way as with Xplor fruits but this time all the explorers are discovering new vegetables and spices.
All the participants collect first the ingredients of the "New World" and at the end of the game, they are preparing a typical meal of the discovered country.
The aim of this version is to encourage cooking with all the family while learning on the worldwide cuisine and introduce easily new vegetables and spices for the children.
In this third version, our great explorers encounter new civilizations and you will learn about geography, history,and cultures.
You can play with quizzes that you can you create alone so that this version is useful for the teachers, parents or companies.
Then, Xplor Quiz can be perfectly adapted to create competitions between the students or within a class, for teambuilding
We organize seminars, workshops and team building for the schools or companies in Norwegian, English or French.
Xplor workshops for schools (from 5 to 18 years)
My approach by playing Xplor fruits is to learn about fruits and the flavors and the taste of the children that is so important at their ages.
I come to the school with many fruits (including the exotics ones) that we will discover while playing and enjoy during a collective session at the end of the game.
Xplor Cooking classes for kids and adults
I use both Xplor fruits and Xplor food to encourage the kids for learning on the ingredients used and experimenting while cooking.
I have 4 years experience as a cooking teacher for kids and adults at the French and the international school in Oslo
Xplor Competitions for the children and adults
I used my support Xplor civilizations to offer a competition based on the knowledge of the participants in history, geography, cuisine, and cultures.
The quizzes can also be created by companies or parents regarding any subject that they desire.
Xplor Teambuilding for the Enterprises
I offer a unique concept by offering cooking Masterclasses for different teams. While one team prepares food, the other is playing Xplor civilizations. The winning team is the one that proposes the best plate both in savor and design and the one having the best results of the quizzes
