Choose from a range of characters / classes & retrospect as a team through playfulness and adventure.
Your scrum master or facilitator becomes the dungeon master and architects the story of this retro
Gain inventory items to help you navigate through the dungeon, its traps and enemies by giving kudos where it's due
Roll for initiative against enemies and traps alike. If you fail in your roll, share something that you hated in the last iteration. ("They see me rollin', they hatin" - +1 Intelligence
If you succeed in your roll, share a risk the team needs to look out for in the future (Beware the smiling dungeon master) +1 Wisdom
Invite your team to rate their own retro using a fist of five (Mini groot) as retros themselves shouldn't be omitted from continuous improvement!
Because work can be fun with a little creativity.
Let me know what your team thought of this retro. I love hearing stories about how they go down.
As always, you can download this, alongside 45+ other retro templates here;
