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.
Now you can get your adventure on from home!

In partnership with B1G1 (Business for Good), 5 themed challenges are tailored to your company’s objectives, leading to a positive impact, and a charitable giving strategy. For example (based on a fabric focused client), with the first 5 challenges completed each team’s outcome would provide:
• One month of sewing training for women in Bangladesh
• 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
• A day of literacy and business training for women in Uganda
We work with you to develop a strategy that best fits your company’s objectives, and helps those in need.
The hunt was a huge success!! Even this skeptical crowd of mobile app building designers and engineers were pleasantly surprised with the very cool smartphone application and everyone had a really great time! Michael and his team did a terrific job facilitating and the whole event went very smoothly.
We had a great time and I received a lot of positive feedback from the team. They were surprised, had fun and enjoyed participating in multiple activities. Michael was amazing!
It was a great time. I have only received positive feedback from my team which is a rare thing. Please let Stuart know we loved it.
The event was perfect !!!!! Your staff were amazing and engaging. We absolutely loved the activities building up to the Teddy Bear Build. Beyond our expectations.
Amazing! The event was a HUGE success! Everything was perfect – the participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I can’t say enough about how well it went. The word is already flying around the office about the success of the program and we already have another group thinking about using this program for an event of their own!
I have to say Kevin was absolutely OUTSTANDING. He is truly gifted in his presentation, engagement of the people, he’s funny and everyone just raved over him—top notch!
