Play the interactive game: "In Harm's Way"

"We're here today to experience a disaster—one that should not be happening." So begins "In Harm‘s Way," Oxfam‘s game on rethinking natural disasters.

You can play "In Harm‘s Way" with as few as 30 people or as many as 150. We provide the materials you‘ll need. As the 90-minute game progresses, players gain a more personal experience of a humanitarian crisis and come to understand that severe storms—and other natural events—do not have to become disasters for a country‘s poorest people. Through planning and preparation, lives, property, and people‘s livelihoods can be saved during emergencies.

During the game, the country you will live in and the roles you will play are fictional. And while the details of your reality are not real, the circumstances they represent are. Every 15 minutes, 24 hours will have passed. Your job is to respond to the crisis—and survive.
