You can now RENT Lost Dutchman for a one-time delivery for as many as 100 people.

Renting the exercise from us makes good sense if you have a one-time need for a great team building exercise but do not consider ownership as a long-term benefit. You might be a trainer with a large management retreat, a meeting planner with a sales conference, or a consultant with a client looking for a powerful team building simulation with a large group. You might want to do leadership training with one group focused on alignment and use the game in a program for new hires to teach teamwork and collaboration. But you CAN rent it for a one-time delivery and you will find it pretty bombproof. We rent the game frequently. People say, because of our packaging and the game's logical construction, that a couple of hours of preparation and they were ready to go.

We rent only to North American companies or to those companies who have had prior business dealings with us elsewhere in the world or who can get an associate of ours to vouch for them. Prepayment is generally required and all non-consummables are to be returned to us in good condition.

With your rental, you get a turnkey package of materials, with pre-stuffed envelopes and tabletop forms as well as whatever coaching support you feel you need to deliver this exercise effectively. With us doing the packaging and accessorizing, we estimate that it will take about 3 hours of your time to be ready to deliver the exercise quite seamlessly. All the presentation materials are shipped to you and can also be accessorized to your specifications with hats, bandannas, confetti, toys, etc. We'll even help you construct your debriefing!

If you are interested in this, call us (864-292-8700) and we will gladly email you some of the actual materials for an overview so that you can understand more about what it takes to deliver. We have a bunch of testimonials from users, a couple of whom have come back and purchased a game from us. (We give some credit for a purchase.)

We'll be brief here because you will certainly want to discuss how this works by telephone. Essentially, give us two weeks notice and we will get you up to speed so you'll be comfortable delivering the exercise. Over the years, we've coached managers, secretaries, quality trainers and many other "non-training" people to do this efficiently and effectively. (Of course, you can also receive our training materials well in advance of your session. We can also attempt to find you a place in one of our deliveries or one of our associates' if desired.)

We will provide a video of the delivery, paper-based training materials, PowerPoint-based training materials and/or all the telephone support you need. We've been supporting purchases of the game in this way for almost 9 years so we think we're pretty good at it! Dutchman is also well designed from an instructional design standpoint and generates numerous testimonials about its effectiveness.

* Price does not include shipping. All materials would need to be returned by UPS or one of the overnight shipping companies being shipped within 2 days of use. Fees are pre-paid and all materials are expected to be returned.

** The Provisioner assists by "banking" the exercise while the Expedition Leader introduces the exercise to participants, answers questions, gives the teams the Resource Packs, handles the weather and debriefing. Co-Expedition Leaders will answer questions and provide on-the-floor support during play.

Note: This offer good in the United States and Canada. We may choose to rent the game to other locations but that is a decision we will make once knowing the details.


Special Deal for those who have read this far...

For a limited time, we will offer to apply the Rental fee toward the purchase of the exercise. Once you see how easy it is to deliver and how effective it can be, you may reconsider your decision to rent as oppose to purchase. We will apply the rental price to the purchase of our Professional Edition of the exercise. This version supports 120 people and can be delivered in PowerPoint or by transparencies.

We can help you accessorize the exercise with cowboy hats, colorful bandannas, badges, confetti, toy trucks and foam cell phones. Workbooks and other materials can also be customized for minimal additional cost.

In our experience, most of our competitors are charging $75 to $150 per participant (or more!).
Dutchman is an engaging and effective exercise for a LOT less! Guaranteed!
