About this Title
Life on the Ice
You abandon the first camp after a few weeks when the pack ice becomes unsafe. The second is called Patience Camp — and patience is certainly something you need, as camp life is deadly boring. The main activities are hunting and trying to keep warm.

Elephant Island
Off Again in an Open Boat
March to Safety
You kill seals for meat and use their blubber (fat) to fuel the stove. By March 1916, the camp has drifted so far north that you reach the edge of the pack ice region.
Dinner is the same every day. It’s either seal or penguin meat, if you’re lucky. From the ship’s stores, you managed to save only walnuts and onions — not exactly a balanced diet.
Based on the book You Wouldn't Want to Be a Polar Explorer!
