Running Time: Self-paced* 

Learners start deep in the VictoryVR Castle which rests on a remote island. The goal is to escape the castle and reach the gates, but at each door stands a troll blocking the exit. To make it past the troll in each room, students accurately respond to a question or puzzle. An incorrect answer provides students another opportunity at the prompt. After three wrong responses, the game resets.
