Virtual Team Building Events and Games
Our virtual games and team building events are perfect for remote teams of all sizes! No matter where they are located, your team will stay connected without having to leave the comfort and safety of their home or office. Conducted live by our Wildly Different Game Masters, you’ll be at ease knowing your virtual team experience is in the hands of professionals. Ensure your next online or hybrid meeting engages your group and keeps your remote team bonding by hosting one of these virtual games or team building activities!
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!
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.
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.
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.
