San Jose is the
Team building and
San Jose is our Gameboard!
Take a page out of Silicon Valley’s book and let technology be your friend. Modern City Scavenger Hunt team games will have you scouring an area of the city while trying to outdo your competition by picking the best route to victory. Create action-based challenges through Santana Row, San Pedro Square in Downtown, or hit up the Winchester Mystery House, featured in the Guinness World Records as the 'Longest Continuous House Construction' spanning 38 years. Each team can choose their own path, so whether you’re a group of 10 or 10,000, you won’t be on top of each other in this epic adventure. For teams and groups that are in different cities, we also offer an experience tailored towards parallel play.
San Jose is surrounded by the tech geniuses of the world, and Social Scavenger is the best way to generate awareness and engage with the town!

We recommend teams of 5 for maximum engagement and competition. While only one person per team will use their smartphone to join your private game, everyone plays a critical role in completing challenges before the clock runs out. Games typically run between 90 minutes - 2 hours and involve both teamwork and creativity in completing photo and video challenges, puzzles and much more.

Ultimate City Hunt
Our hunts are custom events that both match your goals and exceed your expectations. You can expect participants to have a great time and be talking about this as an epic event well afterwards.
Who Kidnapped the Boss?!
Bring your team together with this competitive and cooperative 'whodunnit' escape room style game. Race against the clock to find which of the 5 suspects at your organization kidnapped your boss!
“Fun and innovative team building experience!”
“Really fun, great way to explore a new city!”
"Not only did I have a great time ... it brought us all out of our shells.”
“It was very engaging and perfect for team building activities.”
When you combine our event team with your high-tech adventures, you get the best of both worlds. This is just some of what you can expect:
Our team awards bonus points and sends out personalized messages as submissions roll in, promoting creativity and engagement, because everyone loves bonus points.
With 30 minutes left in your game and competition at full peak, we pull the rug out and hide the leaderboard. Why? To make the winner’s ceremony that much more exciting.
There’s no better way to wrap-up your game than with a custom highlight reel video, featuring the best of the best moments from your adventure.
Your game team can also be available via in-app chat, WhatsApp or Zoom for any in-game questions - which are rare - but just for peace of mind.
When the time runs out, the experience is far from over!
Our mission is to connect people through epic shared game experiences - building stronger teams and connections around the world. We do this by creating an epic video wrap-up that showcases all of the submissions and memories created during the event.
Our city games are played on foot so you can expect a casual walking pace for up to 2 hours with lots of stops to do challenges and explore the area.
If you want a more ‘fast paced’ game please let us know and we’ll turn up the heat. Alternatively, we also have 60 and 90 minute versions available.
Yes we can! Personalized challenges about your values, custom locations, learning objectives - you name it. Talk to a game producer today.
No. Our games are designed to scatter teams across the playing field and large groups can be assigned a variety of starting points.
Both. We have a game ‘zone’ for you to play in with recommended stop / starts, but can accommodate custom start / stop locations in most cases. We can also customize any of our games to specific locations, but normally that’s not required.
Yes. One person per team - or more if you wish - will download our proprietary app and join your private game. The app is loaded with fun and special features. However, if you have a strong phobia of downloading apps, many of our games can be played on a mobile web version (meaning no download).
The app is configured per event but can include: challenges, maps, live streams (showing you other teams in action), live leaderboard, chat room (or trash talking zone), rewards and yes - more!
Once you are ready to book, you’ll tell us the basics (e.g. which game, location, date, approx. headcount, etc.) and we’ll get you a contract, a deposit invoice and a game producer.
Your game producer will make sure you have a great event and will handle any customization requests, hosts etc. You are in good hands.
No problem! We will only invoice you for up to 90% of your headcount ensuring you have some wiggle room - but you don’t need to give us those numbers right away either.
Did we mention you're in good hands? While some of the most epic games have happened when teams battle a few elements, you are able to rebook your game for a future date at no additional cost. We also have ‘indoor’ games in many cities in case there is no future date for you.
