How it works

The Game is Afoot

Your boss has been kidnapped and as much as you would enjoy a lighter workload, you know what you have to do. In this high-energy team building adventure you can play with our boss OR we can customize the experience to include your team - right into the game (no acting skills required).

    and have fun


01. The Game

Your Boss has been kidnapped! 5 members of your organization are on the top of our suspect list. Breaking out into case squads, teams head out into the city (on foot) and will have 2 hours to work through a series of riddles, puzzles, and photo and video challenges at various GPS points to unlock 5 suspect statements. With those statements revealed teams try and decode the final mystery and save the boss (all while earning more points than any other team).

Customized? You don't have to customize this game - we have a famous default Boss if you want to avoid any setup time or cost - with that said, it's fun to customize!

How to Play

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 media challenges and strategy in solving puzzles.  Not a puzzle type of team?  Fret not - our puzzles all come with plenty of hints.

  • Join your private game on the Social Scavenger app (1 person per team)

  • Review your game day briefing and get ready to play

  • When the clock starts ticking - the game is on, let’s play!

  • Teams choose their own path to try and earn the most points

  • Complete fun and creative challenges as you explore the area

  • When the clock strikes zero, wrap it up with a winner ceremony & highlight reel videos

Game Day Services

When you combine our event team with your hi-tech adventures, you get the best of both worlds. This is just some of what you can expect:

  • A Big Boost Of Creativity


    Our team awards bonus points and sends out personalized messages as submissions roll in, promoting creativity and engagement, because everyone loves bonus points.

  • Suspense



    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.

  • Custom Video



    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.

  • Live Support



    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.

Epic Video Wrap-up

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.

    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.

  • Video Crew

    Add a team of videographers to tail around your participants. The mix of videos from the players with those from the crew makes for a great experience.

Put Your Team Into the Game

Putting your team into the game adds a level of personalization, fun and connection that you don’t get with most events. Who Kidnapped the Boss features these unique customizations:

  • Game Experience

    Tweak the challenges, suspects, and experience to your liking.

  • Custom Game Logo

    Create a logo used in the game, trailer video, and posters.

  • Gameplay Visuals

    Enhance the immersion with themed photos and other assets.

  • Teaser Video

    Pique interest with an epic trailer that hints at what's to come.

  • Highlight Reels

    At your activity, the highlight reel wrap-up video is always a hand-crafted hit and goes very well with an award ceremony or as a fun memento.


  • What are the Physical Requirements and How Long is the Game?

    The game is played on foot and while each game / city is slightly different expect a casual walking pace for up to 2 hours with lots of stops to do challenges and explore the space. 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. 

  • How Do We Make the Teams?

    We will give you our $0.02 on the best way to make teams based on your outcomes, but more random than not is always a good idea.

  • Are We All Walking Around Together?

    No. Our games are designed to scatter teams across the playing field and large groups can be assigned a variety of starting points.

  • Are the Start / Stop Locations Provided or Custom?

    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.

  • Do We Use Your App To Play?

    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! 

  • Will We Have Game Day Support and a Host?

    If you are booking a premier event you’ll have access to our live virtual events team, though frankly not a lot of support is required once you get started. We have 3 tiers of events - but every game comes with a game producer who sets you up for success. So whether you prefer to run your own show, want our virtual team conducting things or even an in person host - just let us know! 

  • What is the Booking Process?

    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.

  • What if We Don’t Know How Many People Will Be Playing?

    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.

  • What about Rain & Inclement Weather?

    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.
