Why Game Shows?

Game Show activities are a powerful way to captivate and entertain your team during corporate meetings. Traditional meetings can often become monotonous, leading to disengagement. By incorporating game show activities, you infuse energy and excitement into the event, making it memorable and fun. Employees are more likely to participate actively when the format is engaging and entertaining, which can lead to better retention of the meeting’s key messages and objectives. The interactive nature of game shows, with elements like buzzers, team competitions, and live scoring, keeps participants alert and involved throughout the event.

lip sync challenge

Lip Sync Challenge - Talent Show

This popular game show takes the art of lip-syncing to a brand new level of entertainment. Participants go head-to-head, battling it out to prove their miming mastery.

Lip Sync Challenge delivers iconic songs, two teams putting on an epic lip-sync showdown like no other. Here's the twist: these teams aren't just pretending to sing, they're putting their heart and soul into embodying the original artist's charisma, moves, and overall vibe.

We set the stage, the lights are dimmed, and the crowd is on the edge of their seats.  Your team will expose their inner rock stars, pop icons, and hip-hop legends. From flawless choreography to spot-on facial expressions, they leave no stone unturned in their quest for lip-sync domination.

THE CHALLENGE (Jeopardy)

This game show is played a little bit differently.  You can have one player, two players or three compete in our version of the TV classic game show, Jeopardy. We call it "The Challenge" but,  made it very easy to play. We ask the question; you give us an answer, simple as that.  Contestants pick a category and point value, and then the question is “up for grabs.” as to who hits their buzzers first and can answer correctly.  It's a replica of what you see on TV, but with a few twists, turns and a lot of laughter.

OOPS UPSIDE YO HEAD (Comedy Game Show)

This game show is hilarious and is a huge it in Las Vegas and Atlantic City today.  The objective is for the players (wearing hard hats) to hit themselves (if they know the answer) or each other (to force them to answer) on the hard hat with a HARMLESS foam (20-inch noodle) bat to answer all kinds of crazy trivia questions.

Name That Hit Song - Game Show

OOPS UPSIDE YO HEAD (Comedy Game Show)

This show is a good replica of the show "Shazam!", which is a popular game show.  Your guests will compete to identify songs by listening to a short snippet. In this fast-paced game, contestants listen to a brief portion of a song and must quickly guess its title and artist. Points are awarded based on correct answers and the speed of hitting the buzzer.

The show often features a variety of music genres to challenge the contestants' musical knowledge and memory. This game is quite entertaining even for the audience as they watch participants race against the clock to identify hit songs.
