Speed Gaming

Directly inspired from speed dating, this format allows 2 players, chosen at random, to collaborate together in solving challenges.
Speed gaming

Get the need for speed! 83% of employees who play games during training are more motivated. Speed Gaming is an exhilarating new type of virtual team-building activity. Our team will develop a fun way for your employees to learn more about each other and hone their skills in a low-stakes environment.

Want more information about the benefits of speed gaming? Here is your quick guide to Speed Gaming.

The Greatest Team Building Activity

Players spin a wheel and immerse themselves in challenging games they must play in less than three minutes. They have just enough time to solve puzzles and perform short activities, but they can’t hesitate, and they must communicate with their partner to win.

Players work in pairs, and they can communicate with each other through our software. The goal of the activity is not for teams to compete against each other or other teams. Instead, each pair must work together to score points, improving their communication and teamwork skills.

At the end of a game, the pair discovers how they did, and then the game reassigns each player to a new partner. The players have dozens of opportunities to meet people within the company and learn more about other departments and units.

Pick Your Perfect Speed Gaming

We offer a few different activities your employees can play. You can cycle through multiple games or prioritize one during a Speed Gaming session.

It’s a Match!
It’s a Match! tests your players’ memory and concentration abilities. A group of cards appears on their screens face down. Players must click on cards to flip them over and match pairs of identical cards. Once they’ve completed one set of cards, they move on to the next level with more cards they need to uncover.

Why An Escape Game Is the Perfect Team Building Exercise

Eye Spy
Eye Spy tests players’ ability to notice small details and remember company visuals. A large image appears on the players’ screens containing numerous features. The team must find objects with your company logo on them or people performing activities that your company does. The team must decide how to break the image down and look for the objects they need to find.

Lock Heart
Lock Heart tests your players’ teamwork and communication skills. A player’s cursor acts as a flashlight, illuminating safes with codes that let them open all the safes. However, each code is incomplete. Players must remember what the incomplete codes are and work together to assemble the main code.

Team Member Compatability
Each player has opportunities to work in teams with many people in your company. They can see for themselves how they work with others and whether certain people work better with them than other people. If they find that they struggle to be compatible with others, they can take training to improve their skills.

They can also see how other departments work. A marketing professional can make connections with a financial professional, which can help them craft cheaper and more effective marketing campaigns.

Team Member Collaboration
Every game requires your employees to collaborate. Players must communicate clearly and quickly without talking over each other. They must divide tasks and trust their teammates to perform activities on their behalf.

Quick Ice Breakers
Each game lasts three minutes, so you can get through 20 games in an hour and move on to other activities. Players must communicate and work together during the entire game with no chance to rest or become distracted. Other icebreakers take far longer and are less effective because people choose not to participate.

We design Speed Gaming to be genuinely fun and invigorating. Players won’t notice that they are honing their skills and learning more about each other because they’re focused on solving puzzles and scoring points. The games create friendly competition and memories that will last longer than any other activity they do.

Learning and Development

Speed Gaming works for employees at any point in learning and development. Both new employees and veterans can hone their skills, connect with other departments, and learn about company guidelines. You can use your games during the onboarding process and continuing education.

Industries That Use Speed Gaming

Any industry can benefit from Speed Gaming, but here are a few of the industries we recommend Speed Gaming for.

Technology companies can benefit significantly from Speed Gaming. Many companies have high numbers of employees, and it can be hard for a low-ranking employee to meet everyone. Speed Gaming creates perfect opportunities for networking and icebreaking. It also trains low-ranking employees to use company technology and identify products.
