Team Games

Structured On-site Events

Having Fun with Your Team


Attaining uncommon goals

Brainstormers™

Brainstormers: Brainstorming GameThis is a fun and inspiring team building event that fits with your team's initiative for innovation & creativity. It is perfect for team retreats, conferences, sales Events, Kick-offs or any Meetings.

How it works

Two or more teams of 3-7 people compete using their creative minds in fun filled game-show like event. Imagine Donald Trump's The Apprentice and "Family Feud" rolled into one with a very high dose of creativity.

Each team works together to answer simple, mind stretching, yet often hilarious questions (question examples).

Brainstormers™ is played in 4 parts that last from one to three hours. Each round gets progressively more difficult while increasing the rewards. Teams are given challenging and provoking questions that require team creativity, and help to expand generative thinking and creative perspectives.

Prizes are generally awarded to the winning team - and, of course, the losing team gets a consolation prize. In addition to team contestants, the game involves a team of judges of your choice.

Customizing Questions

We will customize questions to fit your organization. The questions could be general such as the examples to the right or specific to a business need, for example, "What are ways to improve our customer service?" or "What are things we can do to improve communication" or "What are things we can do to attract more customers." The possibilities for questions are endless.
