Not Your Average Game Show

Event Description

Teams get their game on in this high-energy event that is not your average game show. There is no need for a studio audience because, unlike most TV game shows where only a couple people compete at a time, everyone participates in this game show!

As the contestants enter the room, they are handed a bandanna. The color bandanna they receive determines which team they will play on. Next, our emcee and DJ welcome the participants and invite them to join their team table to take part in a series of interesting game show challenges including:

Trivia Challenges
Trivia challenges will be developed for your theme and can cover pop culture, questions about your company/industry, meeting content or a good mix of all. Straight trivia may include multiple choice or fill in the blank answers. In “Fact or Fiction”, people must determine if the statement read aloud is true or false. For instance, “Tarantulas can survive for up to two years without food.” Alarmingly, this is a fact!

Your typical game show would have stopped here – not so with our event! We have many more challenges we deliver to make this game show experience a “wow” including:

Music Challenges
You won’t be playing Name that Tune in the Not Your Average Game Show! Instead, musical challenges may ask you to choose the item NOT mentioned in the song or state the name of an actor starring in a particular movie after hearing a snippet of the movie theme. Songs are carefully chosen to highlight your company or meeting theme, or kept generic. In addition, teams may send representatives to the stage to where they listen to a song through headphones and sing the song to all the teams only using the words “La, La, La” to help them identify it! Or contestants may have to buzz in to sing the next line of a popular song that is cut off at a certain point in the lyrics.

Physical Challenges
Physical challenges are interspersed throughout the event to provide a high-energy brain break and could include bouncing balloons around in the air while the DJ spins a fun song. When the music stops, each participant grabs one balloon and the emcee spins a wheel. Whichever color the wheel comes to rest on represents the color balloon that is worth bonus points. Teams get one point for each one of that color they’re holding. Another challenge may have participants racing to be the first to complete a giant jigsaw puzzle.

Just a Minute Challenges
Teams race against the clock in these challenges! For instance, they may have a minute to build the tallest tower out of playing cards that they can. Or, all players see how many pencils they can flip off the back of their hands and then grab again in midair. Teams earn points based on how well they can accomplish this task. Multiple minute-long challenges can be interspersed throughout the game show to energize teams!

Teams earn points based on how well they perform in each challenge. The team that ends up with the most points is called to the stage and all of the participants receive an award medal and bragging rights that they were the most successful at the Not Your Average Game Show!
