Team Building Games with Amusement Masters

One of our absolute favorite types of events to provide games for are the ones that build team synergy! Watching a  group come together to overcome obstacles and achieve a goal is super satisfying. Team building activities can have such a positive impact for a team. Communicating in new ways within the group allows members to learn new strengths and gain insights about the people they work with. This gives each individual the opportunity to show their dedication to achieve the team’s goal. We feel the best part about team building activities is getting employees outside the monotony of their work. You engage with them in a fun way, making them feel valued.

Below we are a few of our client’s favorite Amusement Masters games for team building activities:

JUMBO GAMES 

Our GIANT TOWER GAME is a classic that’s now larger than life. Working together, taking turns removing each block, each team can continue to build the tower until it topples. We love that each team must work together or it’s timber for the tower!

Our 18 foot JUMBO FOOSBALL table accommodates up to 16 foosball players at one time! Competitively play against 8 opposing players, making sure to pass the ball down the long table to score a goal. Whether your team is in defense or offense, each member plays an important role in winning the game where communication is a must!

Playing our JUMBO CHECKERS AND CHESS games bring a team together by challenging the opposition’s wits through classic board games, now blown up to epic proportions. Create a strategy, implement that against the other team and win the game!

COMBAT GAMES 

Relay your way across our inflatable OBSTACLE COURSES  that are perfect for team engagement. Constructing the proper race order and matching up with the opponent makes this ‘race for the win’ game great for ensuring that teams learn to work together!

Virtual Hero For Your Next Event

One of the newest forms of entertainment for special events is incorporating gamification into event activities. Amusement Masters is proud to be a pioneer of this new trend by offering gamification opportunities to clients through a suite of virtual and customizable games called Virtual Hero. The term gamification refers to an incorporation of social and reward aspects into an activity. Essentially the concept of ‘gamifying’ links the game player with a system of online social interactions and rewards through customization – personalizing the game experience all-around for the user. With Virtual Hero we use green screen imaging to capture an event attendee’s image and literally place them ‘inside’ the game that’s played on their own personal mobile device during the event. Each Virtual Hero game can be customized to the specific event’s theme or company brand of the host of the party. It’s a unique game tie in with ‘social engagement’ that most games cannot match – engaging for players of all ages!

By adding our Virtual Hero game to an event clients’ have the option of four interactive games, each with a fun virtual twist:

• Hit the Hero, is a fast-paced game that emulates the old arcade favorite Whack-A-Mole. In this modern update, the game is customized so that the player whacks their own face and attempts to not hit the rabbit. All good fun, in an effort to increase their points and make it to the event leaderboard for prizes and recognition. Want to see how this game works? Click onto Google Play!

• Hero Jump is a game that completely engages the player into the action. Players work to jump towards the top and beat the record by climbing the hero tower. Like Hit The Hero, players maneuver to increase their points and make it to the event leaderboard for prizes and recognition. Want to see how this game works? Click onto Google Play!

• Bring casino fun to your event with Hero Slot Machine. This game makes the user feel like they’re in a Las Vegas casino…virtually! The image of the attendee’s face is added to this game and incorporated into a rolling slot machine. Guests then choose a bet and win according to their playing result. Want to see how this game works? Just click onto Google Play!

• For guests who want to show off their style then Hero Dress Up is the perfect activity! The attendee’s image is captured by green screen photography and then put onto a touch screen iPad. Attendees can then customize their virtual fashions to their liking. Once customized and completed the fashionable results are printed…making the photo a great party take away. Want to see how this game works? Click onto Google Play!

We Played At Eventeract!

This Spring we were honored to be a major sponsor for the Eventeract conference in it’s inaugural year. Produced by the Georgia Chapter Meeting Planners Association (GaMPI), the conference was geared towards engaging the meeting and special events planner. The partnership was win-win; it gave Amusement Masters the opportunity to showcase to an audience of planners and it gave attendees two days of play that enhanced the learning experience.

On both conference days Amusement Masters maintained a booth on the expo floor. This gave us an ideal space for meeting with attendees and giving them a small taste of our game and amusement inventory. Our booth was Western inspired and featured the Wild West Quick Draw, our Western Shootout arcade game and our newest game, “Hit The Hero.” The decor was straight from the Wild West with western fencing and barrel decor items. We even brought in comfortable leather seating for guests looking to kick back and take a load-off as they made their way through the expo.

On the first evening of the conference we placed games throughout the conference’s signature fundraiser “The Gathering.” The event theme was “Back to the 80’s.” We loved this theme because it opened the door to bring in a variety of 1980’s Arcade Games and Pinball Machines, our Classic Strip Photo Booth and our new 2014 Instagram Interactive Booth. All in all, Amusement Masters helped keep the 80’s vibe alive that night.

World Water Day – Games CAN Make A Difference!

Did you know that the world’s second biggest killer of children is together, unclean water and poor sanitation?

For more than 20 years countries around the world have observed World Water Day on March 22. It’s scary, but the United Nations estimates that by 2030 parts of the planet could be tapped out of water suitable for consumption. Currently close to half of all people in developing countries suffer, at any given time, from a health problem caused by water and sanitation deficits.

What can we do, you ask? At Amusement Masters we believe that our passion for games CAN make a difference. We’re proud to announce that we’re an active participant in the Safe 2 SERV project – a SERV International initiative currently deploying up to 100 water filtration systems annually throughout the world. Through this initiative something as simple as $65 can provide water for a family of five for up to ten years!

In promoting the Safe 2 SERV project we’ve developed a way for communities, corporate teams and schools to adopt this initiative and have fun doing it. For less than the cost of booking a team building game or scavenger hunt with Amusement Masters you can book a Safe 2 SERV kit. For a nominal fee you can purchase water filtration buckets that your organization decorates with inspiring messages and that SERV International distributes to communities in need.

A recent successful use of our Safe 2 SERV kit was for the University of Florida who purchased a kits for their charity night of “Gators Give Back.” Fourteen bucket kits were beautifully decorated and returned for distribution around the world to provide clean drinking water for fourteen families…for the next ten years. We love that SERV International has made global change personal and we’re proud to be part of this movement!

For more details on how your group can make a difference by booking a Safe 2 SERV kit contact Amusement Masters’ Kelly Smink at KSmink@amusementmasters.com / www.AmusementMasters.com.
