There is some urgency as the pyramid must be completed before the elderly Pharaoh dies.
Decide whether to build a single large pyramid or two small ones, which stone quarry to use and on which site to build. At the same time you need to work out how much it will cost, stay in budget and assess how long it’s all going to take - the Pharaoh is not getting any younger. In addition, in face-to-face sessions of The Pyramid Game, a scale model is needed - so the Pharaoh sees what he’s getting for his money. In virtual sessions there is, instead, a 'Squares Problem', which if resolved correctly will give gravitas to the team's reputation. An impressive sales slogan to appeal to his emotions is needed. Finally teams make short presentations - along with all the other contenders. The cheapest quote for building, within budget and within the time frame, wins - and in the event of a tie, the sales slogan and quality of the presentation will be the deciding factors.
Plenty for teams to display their skills – and plenty to assess (Observer’s Forms supplied). This is a timeless Northgate activity aimed at improving teamwork, very popular, and excellent value for money.

On our management conference programme 'The Pyramid Game' proved a valuable exercise that was both stimulating and fun to do.
L. Morton, Blue Arrow Personnel
We use 'The Pyramid Game' at small conferences and find it opens up all sorts of training points for discussion. There is a lot to be gained in terms of teams identifying their strengths and weaknesses and allocating duties to make the most of their individual skills.
P. Attwood, Thomas Cook
I used 'The Pyramid Game' during a teambuilding exercise on an induction course. The best learning points included delegation, presentation, and options (for solution). The learning points will stay in the mind long after the course – just the ticket!
John Goode, Kerobi Performance Management Ltd
I used 'The Pyramid Game' with five different groups, all of whom were at different levels. It worked well on ALL levels - everybody engaged and there were some good learning outcomes from the exercise.
