Ania came to us with a special request: do something so the employees can finally get to know each other! The company was organizing a big event with a dinner for all the emplyees. Our client knew however that the dinner itself is not enough to establish relationships in such a big group. We were happy to step in and clarify our objective in this mission:
– integrate employees from different departaments, some of them meeting for the first time during this event
– come up with an engaging story that will keep everyone entertained
– spice it up with some competition to keep the game dynamic and engaging
TEAMBUILIDING GAME FOR 100 PEOPLE – PREPARATION
Trying to come up with the best way to organize such a game we focused on efficiency. Waiting in a never ending queue to finally get to play a game can easily kill the excitement. Dividing the group into smaller teams had to go nice and quick.
Additionally, the client asked us to make sure the teams complete their missions simultaneously so that the game wouldn’t get in the way of their dinner plans. We also had to give a fair chance at winning to everyone involved – especially with special prizes from the client involved 🙂
After analyzing all the factors, we proposed a technologically advanced idoor game with AR titled Enigma Experts: Operation London. The indoor game has one big advantage – no need to worry about the weather, nothing can stand in the way of the realization.
The plan was for all the employees to play our game in one big space. For an hour, they became secret agents. Like Benji and Luther from Mission: Impossible they connect with the field agents to help them stop an evil organization. Each team receives the same playing kit and then do their best to get the most points and successfully finish the mission.
TEAMBUILIDING GAME FOR 100 PEOPLE – REALIZATION:
The whole event happened in a restaurent where our client was organizig a dinner after the game. We divided the 100 players into 16 teams of 6. The teammates were random for each player so that the employees got to know people they don’t usually work with. Every employee entering the restaurant got a card which then translated to their team number. Each team got an iPad with the puzzles and the secret files needed to complete the game.
COMPANY EVENT ENTERTAINMENT – SUMMARY
Seeing the reception of our game, the EscapeCity team felt very proud of their achievement. As the players got to save the world, we as well felt that our mission was completed.
