Pathfinder at Play: Group Gambling

These photos appear to document Pathfinder's staff engaged at an elaborate game of chance. No record exists of's staff being transported to a location in the United States permitting gambling, so it may be the case that they were simply playing for symbolic tokens or "funny money."

It is not clear to me whether Group Gambling was as effective as Group Bowling or Group Volleyball in terms of positively influencing the attitudes and worldview of's staff. Some of the faces in these photos look quite tense -- almost as if the employee was still at work. In fact, of course, everyone who worked for Pathfinder was "betting his or her career" on its success -- a bet that, unfortunately, turned out to be a bad one.
