In this hybrid team building experience, groups work on their own mobile devices and are transformed into teams of “spies” who awake in a hotel room only to find out that their “cover” has been blown. Messages from Mission Central direct in-person and remote teams as they view the clues in the hotel room, train station, and airport on their own devices. These clues are meant to covertly get them, and only them, to their new credentials and plane ticket which are safely stored in a locker at the airport. Clues involve recorded voice mail messages, “bugged” plants, song clips, ciphers, and more. The team that earns the most points by gathering information and solving clues is the winner.
The Great Race
Our best-selling scavenger hunt team builder was our very first hybrid event! This team building activity is inspired by television’s Amazing Race – a popular competition in which teams travel the world. In-person and remote teams will have a great time during this competition that celebrates travel! Individuals playing from their home office can collaborate with in-person attendees and work as a team to participate in a variety of challenges delivered via a game app onto their own devices. Team communication is key and facilitated through your preferred platform. Challenges include “routes,” with travel-related trivia questions, clues, and photo tasks; “detours” which allow players to choose which of 2 tasks they prefer to complete; high scoring “fast forward” challenges; and “roadblock” challenges. The goal is to score more points than any other team before you cross the finish line. Finally, when the journey ends, a link to a presentation of photos taken during the game is shared for all to enjoy.
Not Your Average Game Show
Game show classics meet modern technology in our hybrid game show. In-person meeting attendees and those participating from their home-offices will be totally immersed in this interactive experience. An emcee keeps attendees engaged and energy levels high as they introduce a variety of categories such as What’s That Tune, Survey Says, The Prize is Right, and more. Everyone participates on their own devices as players earn points during the activity. Throughout the game show, players can see how they stack up against the competition on a live scoreboard. The player or team scoring the most points at the end will be the grand prize winner!
Option: Customize this game show with your meeting theme or organization’s meeting content.

Even though your group may not all be together in person, they can still collaborate during your hybrid team meeting to make a difference for a non-profit! This hybrid activity is completely themed to charity, community, and giving back. In challenges, teams work together to answer trivia questions, solve clues, take photos, and make videos throughout the quest. Each participant plays on their own mobile device and works with their team to earn points. Together, they make their way through the game board, collecting “gems” and ultimately unlocking the vault to release a monetary donation for your chosen charity. At the end of the event, all participants will have a smile on their face as they view a presentation of the photos and videos submitted during the event.
