Price Increase on our team building exercise, Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine

For many years, we have kept the prices of our excellent teambuilding exercise, The Search for The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine at the same levels, even though we have made many packaging and design enhancements, including a complete redesign of all our versions earlier this year.

We are going to keep the prices the same on our two smaller versions of the exercise, LD4 designed for up to 24 players and LD6 designed for up to 36 players, at $1695 and $2895 USD, respectively.

The Professional Edition of the exercise will rise to $9995. That version is being used more and more for really large team building events and we are actually remaining the best value in the marketplace for a tightly designed exercise on collaboration, teamwork, strategic planning and leadership.

ALL of our exercises and toolkits are packaged with detailed instructions for use and we offer free, unlimited support via phone and email. And, these are total costs (plus shipping) – you pay no certification or licensing fees, no per-participant or annual fees. Nothing. (VERY unusual in our marketplace.)

And we are really pleased that Dutchman is a finalist in the 2018 BEX International Business Learning Games competition to be held in Lisbon in September. We entered the contest to get some feedback about our exercise in competition with other global products focused on learning and organizational improvement, even though we are in our 25th year of distribution of the program.
