How corporate scavenger hunts work
In museums, historic neighborhoods, and other locations, hunters compete to answer questions in hunts designed to:
- get people relaxed, laughing and having fun
- foster teamwork and togetherness in a dynamic new way
- introduce people to fascinating—and often overlooked—places
- lead to an exciting gathering over drinks after the hunt, which we can help you set up
- leave you with more money to spend on that party
You’re not hunting for things (put back that Ming vase!) but for answers to tricky and humorous questions about the intriguing places and objects you discover. No previous knowledge is necessary—you just need a sharp mind and comfortable shoes. The game is like a walking tour spiked with caffeine. The team from your company that answers the most questions correctly wins. Typically the game lasts two hours (with about half an hour more for set-up and post-hunt scoring), but the length can be customized to meet your needs.
Build teamwork while boosting morale-through fun
The questions emphasize nimble thinking and, above all, teamwork. They’re crafted to bring out the various skills of each member of your team. A person who’s good at seeing the big picture will get one answer, a teammate who’s good with wordplay will get the next, and someone who is good at navigating may excel at getting the team from place to place. The best teams quickly learn that they must use the strengths of everyone in the group.
