The Urban Game Team Building, also called City Game, is somewhat similar to the Treasure Hunt. This is probably one of our favorite corporate teambuilding formats! It is a creative and exciting adventure that takes place in a city of art, an interesting area to visit, or in any place where the customer wants to go. Discovering a new or old city while playing with your colleagues or friends and carrying out various kinds of creative tasks is probably one of the best ways to spend a day together. ¬† To kick off the Urban Game experience, each participant receives essential materials, game rules, and a simplified map of the place. Occasionally, we enhance their toolkit with a compass, though this isn’t a constant feature. Regardless, these tools are their sole aids for navigating the city.

Guided by the given game rules and objectives, each team chooses the optimal route. Armed with essential materials and clues, teams must adhere to predetermined guidelines, ensuring a comprehensive exploration of the city.
