Why are we playing this game?
I want to see how you think.
You and your companions have just survived the crash of a small plane. Both the pilot and the co-pilot were killed in the crash. It is mid-January, and you are in Northern Canada. The daily temperature is 25 below zero, and the night time temperature is 40 below zero. There is snow on the ground, and the countryside is wooded with several creeks criss-crossing the area. The nearest town is 20 miles away. You are all dressed in city clothes appropriate for a business meeting. Your group of survivors managed to salvage the following items:
A ball of steel wool
A small axe
Can of crisco shortening
Newspapers (one per person)
Lighter (without fluid)
Extra shirt and pants for each survivor
20 x 20 ft. piece of heavy duty canvas
A sectional air map made of plastic
Family sized chocolate bar (one per person)
Your task is to list or rank the above 10 items in order of importance for your survival. List the uses for each using the link below.
