Extra Bonuses:

At Dr. Clue, we want to make sure your team-development efforts continue well beyond your 1/2 day of treasure hunting with us.   That’s why we’re including 3 more bonus activities in this package that you can use anywhere, anytime:  at your office, during a networking event, etc.:

  • Puzzling Networking Game:   Regularly priced at $117, the Puzzling Networking Game is kind of like speed dating (without the awkwardness). Working in groups of four, participants solve a series of tricky puzzles, codes and ciphers — but here’s the twist: each clue has been cut into 4 pieces. Each individual person starts the game with one quarter of a puzzle. Their task is to first locate the other people in the room who have the other pieces of their puzzle, and then to solve that puzzle together with their “temporary teammates”. Once the task is completed, participants receive new puzzle pieces, find the appropriate new teammates, and form another temporary team, and so on, and so on.
  • “Find-Someone-Who” Bingo: Regularly priced at $53, this quick and easy DIY game (no facilitator required) gives participant one of 5 bingo cards.  In each square is a description of someone in the room you need to seek out: for example, you may be asked, “Find someone who…speaks 3 languages”, or “Find someone who…is vegetarian”.  As you locate someone who meets the requirement, you take their signature in the box and move on to the next quest.  The first person to get a Bingo, wins.  Or, you can play on until one’s entire card is filled.
  • Table Rebus:  So there you are in your ballroom, having just sat down for a big, group meal.  As coffee and dessert rolls around, you start thinking:  “Hmm, what do we do now to spice up the party and get people interacting?” Regularly priced at $65, our DIY Table Rebus answers that question in spades!  Each table receives a a number of pieces of a “rebus” (picture puzzle). By moving around the room, swapping pieces with other tables, your table/team will eventually put together a completed, secret message.  That secret message will direct each table to prepare a specific creative challenge having to do with teams and trust, which they must then perform on stage, in front of the entire assembly.

Bonus Summary:

  • Smart Phone App:
  • Puzzling Networking Game:
  • “Find-Someone-Who” Bingo:
  • Table Rebus:
  • 50-minute coaching with Dave Blum
  • Energy Leadership by Bruce D. Schneider, regularly $400 (for a group of 20)
