Bon Voyage is a simulation based on a team-building exercise model.
Players are divided into groups of roughly five and given the player sheets. At that point, the players are to believe they are participating in a cruise simulation. The narrative takes a turn when the players become shipwrecked on a small island in the Pacific.
Players must use the skills they have in order to find a way off the island. There are two major ways of getting off the island: The Golden Path; and the sub-optimal path. Through the use of teamwork, the participants should be able to make it off the island using the Golden Path in a decent amount of time.
The Facilitator's Guide is meant for the person running the simulation. It contains all of the essential information including what kind of food is available, how to determine the weather for each day, and what kind of items the participants may have on the island.
