A whodunnit team building indoor game you can play anywhere.
Teams work together through a series of puzzles, riddles, trivia and immersive photo & video challenges to unlock 5 suspect statements that will help them to determine Who Kidnapped the Boss. Fun team challenges keep the game light hearted and entertaining while 'hints' ensure that teams never get stuck for too long on puzzles. What's the catch? Hints cost points. The winning team is the one who solves the mystery and has the most points. So teams will have to balance speed, hints, creativity and fun.
A whodunnit that inserts your company, culture and facts - right into the heart of the experience.
Who Kidnapped YOUR Boss? We will take your boss (or chosen Kidnapee), 5 co-workers (or suspects you'd like to flag), a series of facts about your company / group / industry and build them into the game! That means your own hilarious clue cards and suspect statements. When we include some of your own company facts, these can be fun and light hearted or reinforce key messages (or perhaps the reason you are all together).
But that's not all. We can include an immersive photos and video challenge that reflects your company culture, vision or mission. And why stop there? We have even inserted Chairman into the game to provide 'video clues' or other introductions. Customized to your liking or play our ready to go version.
What can be customized:
Who is going to join YOUR list of suspects? Fun poses encouraged.
Trivia and mission challenges right through to introductions...by you. On a horse.
Who Kidnapped Your Boss, themes can be adjusted but let's start here. Trivia Challenge: We are seeking background information on the company. What year was the super team venture launched? 2011, 2014, 2017, or 2018?
Your group will be broken up into appropriate sized teams (~4 players per team), given a set of specific instructions and off they go. They have...
59 minutes... can your teams figure out who kidnapped (the boss) in time? Teams need to work the clock, the clues and satisfy the kidnapper to crack this case.
35 challenges... to complete ranging from puzzles, riddles and trivia to team photo and video challenges. Hints are available so teams don't get stuck. Challenges can be done purely 'at a table' or set to encourage teams to move around your venue.
Winners... will figure out who did it before time runs out - along with earning the most points. Hints may speed teams up - but they definitely cost points. Judges may award creativity points for challenges - another critical strategy to be the winning team.
Gameday is the best day. Your game details will have been worked out with your game producer. You may have selected to have it hosted by our team on the ground or simply access our virtual support teams. Your game producer will ensure everything is ready to roll.
How it Works
More Winning = More Fun = More Engagement
Did awarding bonus points sound like fun? Our judges not only award points for creativity but they send fun messages to the teams right inside the game. We often also pull 1-3 'best of' challenges that can earn their own prizes.
Each team needs to balance skill and management. When do you switch suspects? When do you use hints? Do you need more bonus points?
Play Anywhere. This game is portable and can be run in your office, at a retreat (hotel, resort) or a conference center.
This game includes photo and video challenges - depending on your location and 'daring' level we are happy to increase the skill required to pull these off and earn major bonus points.
Who Kidnapped your Boss is generally low intensity but face paced. Teams can follow one of 5 suspect paths so groups will be working on different challenges.
The game takes into account your location. If you are staying at a resort that has a giant Connect 4 game or a Basketball "Shoot Off" - yes we are likely to work that into the experience if you desire. Why not take advantage of what is around you.
These games require teamwork in order to be successful as a wide range of challenge styles will look to leverage the entire team. It's also a great opportunity for those team members who are a little more reserved to push themselves out of their comfort zone to help take risks they wouldn't normally take.
While winning is what they seek - the game will have teams learn new things about one another and the company - all while having some group fun. We can even get teams 'facing off' in head to head challenges in your game to increase interactions.
We can go beyond your team and offer this custom game company wide. Why would you do that, when you just want a team building experience for your team!? Imagine the entire company has played your game - has completed the custom challenges about your mission and vision - has submitted hundreds or thousands of amazing photos and videos that feed into your sense of purpose? Have given you data on some things they don't know. Get in touch if you want to talk about a bigger vision.
A game could be set to run on a specific anniversary date or available 'all month' for teams to play as they see fit. A shared experience company wide.
Custom challenges can support company initiatives and goals or just reinforce your main messages.
Once we have the company wide game it may be that different departments or locations want to input their own unique trivia challenges. We'll have plug and play opportunities.
Our challenges help foster 'Aha!' moments – those critical experiences that bring teams together by doing something they wouldn't get a chance to do in a typical corporate environment. Whether it's being prompted to share a story or a unique talent or take on a fun or hilarious challenge, we'll help facilitate experiences that get people talking and create genuine, unforgettable moments for your team.
Have your own ideas for team challenges? That's great! We can work with you to ensure they'll integrate effectively with the app. And if you need help brainstorming ideas, we can share some of our most popular and successful challenges that you can modify to suit the needs of your organization.
We watch. We judge. We award bonus points based on creativity and effort. Oh... and we send teams funny messages based on what we see happening.
