Indoor Team Building Games
Crack the Code – A Virtual Escape Room
Teams search for and solve a variety of clues and puzzles to break out of a series of three screens pictured on their device. Their goal? To free themselves before time runs out! The winning team is the one with the most points earned and the fastest escape time. This is a great option for indoor team building.
Level Up – How High Can You Go?
The aim of this game is simple … score as many points as possible before you run out of time. There’s something for everyone in this fun, frenetic activity with teams solving puzzles, cracking codes and completing photo and video challenges. Teams work through five levels, with each passing level becoming more and more complex. They can choose whether to pick easy, medium or hard challenges. The harder the challenge, the higher the points!
Note: You will need to gather a few everyday supplies for this game (approximately $10 in supplies per team) – a supply list is provided.
Manor House Murder
Planning a team building activity can be murder. But, in this case, murder IS the team building event! The body of an internationally renowned lawyer, Laura Norder, has been found and we need your group’s help examining the evidence and liaising with key suspects and witnesses to piece together the sequence of events! Using their own mobile devices or tablets, players complete observational challenges, answer trivia questions, and complete photo and video tasks to earn points to identify the murderer!
ESQ (Epic Selfie Quest) – Photo & Video Scavenger Hunt
Are you ready for your close up? Teams go out and about to complete a variety of challenges that revolve around selfies. They may have to solve puzzles to reveal which photo and video selfies they need to take, identify celebrities from the selfies shown, take selfies with strangers, answer questions featuring songs about selfies, and more.
Explore! – GPS Hotspot Hunt
If you want your teams to go “out and about” to explore an area of interest, then this is the hunt for you! Teams view a live map of the event area, marked with GPS hotspots. Their goal is to make their way towards these hotspots and when they are within range, challenges open up automatically for them to complete. A wide variety of fun challenges await including taking photos, making videos, and answering questions that incorporate trivia, music, pictures and more!
Mixer / Icebreaker Games
Make The Connection
An ideal activity to get guests mixing and mingling at a reception. Guests must connect with a different guest to complete each challenge. The more they do, the more points they win (and the more people they meet)! Sample challenges include finding things in common, such as someone wearing the same color as you and taking a selfie together to prove it; performing an action challenge, such as showing off your best party trick in a video; interviewing someone about their favorite vacation spot; or striking a pose, such as wearing sunglasses in a duo selfie!
