Virtual Mysteries

Manor House Murder

Nothing brings a team together like a good murder mystery. Manor House Murder, our most popular virtual team building event, gets your team working together to solve the untimely death of Laura Norder, a world-famous international lawyer. Your team will examine the evidence, canvass potential suspects and key witnesses. Working remotely from their own devices, team members will answer questions and work on photo tasks that will lead them to discover who is responsible for committing this crime!

Virtual Scavenger Hunts

The Great Race

Our best-selling scavenger hunt activity has gone remote for remote teams! This virtual team building activity is inspired by television’s Amazing Race – a popular competition in which teams travel the world. Your remote teams will have a great time during this virtual scavenger hunt that celebrates travel! Individuals playing from home, work together as a team to participate in a variety of challenges. Team communication is key and facilitated through your preferred video chat 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 online hunt is shared for all to enjoy.

Around The World

Take your team on a virtual globe-trotting trip around the world, visiting 22 countries across 40,000 virtual miles while putting your teamwork, collaboration skills, and creativity to the test! Upon arrival in each country, players unlock tasks using image recognition technology. Starting in Argentina, each country contains a series of tasks & challenges. Challenges range from performing a Bollywood dance in India and demonstrating Kung-Fu skills in China, to answering questions about the rainforest in Brazil, to exploring well-known landmarks on Google Maps to uncover the answers to questions.

Virtual Games And Team Builders

Not “Bored” Game

Board games are popular, but how can you play one when you are not all in the same room? By playing this high-tech version where all players can view the game board on their own devices. Teams race against the clock answering questions revolving around popular culture trying to score as many points as possible before time runs out. Strategy is put into play as teammates must work together to determine the correct answer for each challenge. Your group will definitely not be bored as they engage in this fast-paced “board” game.

The Pitch – Inspired by Shark Tank

Teams come up with a pitch for a fictional new product or service that will revolutionize their industry! Then they divide and conquer to complete their presentation such as filming an ad campaign, creating and taking a picture of the logo for their product, recording a video of a breaking news story, and more.  The virtual meeting leader then shows what each team presented via an online slide show and participants then get to vote for their favorite pitch – but no voting for their own!

Connections Team Challenge

This virtual game allows your group to connect in spirit, even when they can’t in person. During Connections Team Challenge, teammates collaborate while they each play on their own iOS or Android device to complete a series of challenges revolving around connecting. Challenges include photo and video tasks such as arranging players on their video platform screen, so a portion of all four of their faces come together to make one.  Trivia Challenges such as naming the country from the connect-the-dots puzzle shown on the screen.  And, Feedback Challenges designed to encourage discussion, such as deciding which of their school mascots would have been the most likely to win the 100-meter dash if all were competing against one another. A live scoreboard shows how teams are faring and which one will be connected with the name “winner” at the end of the game!

Option: Customize this game show providing up to 10 custom trivia questions about your organization.

Charitable Virtual Games

Donation Quest

Even though your group may not be together in person, they can still work together remotely to make a difference for a non-profit! This activity is completely themed to charity, community, and giving back and challenges teams 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, the Game Master shares a link to a presentation where teams can view all photos and videos submitted during the event.

Option: Customize this virtual give back activity with up to 5 custom trivia questions that put the spotlight on the charity of your choosing. Additional customization is available for a fee.

Make An Impact

Make a real-world impact with this global give back activity that gives your remote participants a say in how a donation – provided by your organization – will be used in the real world. After each set of tasks focused on health, education, food, and the environment, teams will select which project they would like to fund. Will they choose to focus on sustainability projects, green initiatives, providing food to children and families in need, or medical supplies? At the end of the virtual event, we will reveal exactly how impactful your donation will be to communities around the world as we share all of the projects funded by your group.

Online Team Building – No App Required

Jewel Heist

No need to download an app to solve this mystery! Precious jewels have been stolen from a famous museum and the authorities need your help figuring out where the thieves have stashed the stolen jewels. Players work together in small teams to piece together the provided information to match up shipping containers numbers and ports to eventually reveal where the stolen jewels can be recovered. Communication and teamwork are essential in this activity that can be set up for your group either on a website that players must visit or via PDF documents you can forward to the participants.

Virtual Holiday Games

The Haunted Trail

Gather your ghouls, goblins, witches, and zombies for a fun-filled Halloween-themed game that can be played in a non-scary, remote way! Each player will download the game onto their mobile device and gather via video conference. Your group of any size will be broken up into teams to complete the Halloween-themed tasks and challenges as they attempt to outscore all other teams. Players will have a hauntingly good time as they complete a variety of tasks including solving Halloween-themed clues such as figuring out which Jack-o-lantern is not like the others, or answering trivia about famous cult classic movies, ghosts, and more! Players may also be asked to take a fun photo after throwing on a makeshift ghost costume or record a video showing off their most evil laugh. When the game is over, players get a treat, as your entire group views a highlights reel of photos and videos submitted during the game.

Oh What Fun!

Celebrate the holiday season virtually this winter with this holiday-themed game! Your group of any size can play in small teams, or for a family friendly party each player can play with their own household. Players use their own mobile devices as they have a jolly old-time completing holiday-themed tasks or challenges attempting to outscore all other teams. Challenges include solving holiday-themed clues such as figuring out what type of dessert is being hinted at by the picture puzzle, or sorting out which letters to use from all shown to reveal a holiday phrase. Players may also be asked to take fun photos that tie into the puzzles. For instance, after solving a riddle revealing “make a snowman” as the solution, players are tasked with taking a creative photo with a snowman. When the game is over, it will be anything but a silent night, as your entire group gets an opportunity to view a highlight reel of photos and videos made by players during the game.

How much notice is required in advance to book a virtual team building activity?

Like any virtual team building event company, we cannot guarantee your virtual team building activity or hold a date and time until we’ve received a signed contract.

An ideal timeframe to plan a virtual event is two weeks in advance. Of course, to guarantee availability, the more planning time, the better!

Our virtual team builders are available via 2 methods: app based, or by logging online using a link provided once everyone has logged into the selected meeting platform (Zoom, Google Meet, etc.).

App Based Virtual Games

Players download an app onto their mobile device to play through the experience while they utilize their laptop or computer to communicate throughout the virtual game via a video chat (such as Zoom or your preferred online meeting platform). As players join the call, a Game Master welcomes the participants and provides an introduction of the virtual game. Then, the Game Maser will send the group into breakout rooms where teams of 5 to 6 players will collaborate.

Depending on the game selected, players may take photos and videos, solve clues, and submit answers to fun trivia questions. As teams complete tasks, they will earn points. The more points they earn during the time allowed, the better their chances are of winning. The game also features a live scoreboard so teams can keep track of their competition.

At a set time, teams will return to the main session of the online meeting platform where a Game Master will reveal the top teams. If teams submitted photos and videos, the Game Master may also share a slideshow with select photos and videos submitted during the virtual team building activity.

If you are using a meeting platform (Zoom, Google Meet, etc.) to hold your event, following is an outline of the process:

Online Virtual Team Builder

Players log in to an online meeting platform. This could be on our Zoom platform or your organization’s preferred meeting platform such as Microsoft Teams, Hopin, etc. Players will be greeted by a Wildly Different Game Master and an event assistant who will explain the premise of the virtual activity. During the event kickoff, the Game Master will also provide a link to access the online team building game.

Your group will be divided into teams of 5 to 6 players who will collaborate in breakout rooms. Throughout the experience, players can have one person share their screen in the breakout room to ensure they’re working together as they complete the various tasks and challenges. Additionally, the Wildly Different Game Master will remain in the main session of the call to assist teams as needed.

When game time expires, the breakout rooms will close, and teams will return to the main session where the Wildly Different Game Master will announce the results.
