Why a Scavenger Hunt? Why Social Scavenger?

After years of delivering incredible scavenger hunts to people all over the world, we've figured out how to provide memorable experiences to our customers.

Scavenger hunts are different from our other games in a few important ways. Scavenger hunts are party games in which the organizers prepare a list defining specific items or challenges, which the participants then seek to gather or complete. Usually participants work in small teams, although individuals can compete against each other too. The goal is to be the first to complete the list or to complete the most items on that list. Alternatively, it may be to amass the most points while completing the list.

Social Scavenger is different from competitors today in a few major ways. We've been doing this for nearly ten years, and have built the business in a way such that our customers are #1. This allows us to serve you with complete focus. We're also special in that we layer our incredible software product with an equally impressive services group. We dream with you, and are open to integrating special requests into our products. Every month we do events from $500 to $50,000 and up, so we're experts at delivering the best possible outcomes on any budget. We employ game makers, designers, developers, judges, actors, moderators, video editors - all so you don't have to.

How much does it cost?

DIY corporate games start as low as $300 for up to 50 people (10 teams). Pricing is be based on the number of teams, duration of activity and any custom services or features you may want added to your program. We just need to learn a little bit more to give you a quote and get you started.
