The orienteering training is specifically aimed at preparation for backpacking. It is the real world in the backcountry orienteering and not for the orienteering games. Games may be useful for learning to handle a compass in the game environment. Games may not prepare you for backcountry orienteering.

The stoves for backpacking training is designed to help in selecting a stove for backpacking and not for tailgate camping.
