Virtual Globe Trotting
"Travel" Around the World in this competitive, virtual scavenger hunt!
Inspired by television’s Amazing Race – a popular competition where teams travel the world.
The Race Around the World has three levels, each with a variety of fun, interactive, and engaging team challenges. As each team chooses an explorer, players will communicate over video conferencing and collaborate to guide their team’s explorer avatar across the globe with the use of our high tech Go Team App. Within the team, there is one explorer specifically making the moves but being guided by their team who have the information on the efficiency of the routes. Players communicate in their team’s breakout rooms via a video conferencing app – collaborating as one to guide their explorer avatar to the end location. Teams must complete the task with a maximum amount of points as possible – using the help of updates and notifications to maximize their opportunity.
A countdown clock on each stage keeps the team on their toes, and the last team to ‘check-in’ gets no time plan for the next trip! Upon crossing the finish line, each ‘explorer’ cashes in their remaining resource tokens to bolster their score. Teams race through the game, completing travel-themed challenges along the way to earn the most points. The first team to the finish line with the highest score is the winner.

• A school uniform for a child in India
• Baby clothing (such as onesies and jumpers), a blanket, a bath basin, and a mosquito net to prevent malaria for a newborn baby in Kenya
• Warm gloves, scarves, socks, or blankets for a child in Moldova

We work with you to develop a strategy that best fits your company’s objectives, and helps those in need.
