THE WHY
Virtual reality technology immerses your audience in your brand’s world, all within a small space. No need for large presentation screens or lots of materials to pack. With limited equipment, this technology provides more impact than a flyer or brochure. Consider these survey results regarding consumer awareness and interaction with virtual reality:

• 92% of survey respondents in 2017 were familiar with the term “virtual reality.”
• 35% of respondents rated their experience with a virtual reality headset as “very exciting.”

As the virtual reality trend continues to grow, so will the statistics as more audiences engage with the technology at events.

THE HOW
You don’t have to be a multi-million corporation to incorporate virtual reality at your events. Just remember the key ingredient to Virtual Reality success is focusing on the user experience. Here are a couple of tips Amusement Masters shares with clients for getting started:

• Keep the Virtual Reality experience short at 2 minutes or less.

Giant Battleship Game Arrives Summer 2017

Giant Battleship GameWe’ve all played it, that wonderful game that pits player against player with warring strategy and tempts us all to throw the board. The game, is Battleship. The goal of Battleship is to hit the opponent’s ships with pegs or ‘missiles’ until you win. Each player is given the opportunity to configure their battle plan however they choose placing their ships around the board. A little unknown fact is that this game was once known as the ‘pencil and paper game’ because it started out as a game that was played with note pads.

Dating back to World War I, the concept of Battleship originated when war games were popular. Beginning as a ‘pencil and pad’ game, it was published in this form by several companies and in the 1960’s was released as a plastic board game by the toy and gaming giant, Milton Bradley. The game was thought to have originated in France and has changed and evolved ever since.

Battleship is played with two players who each have their own fleet of ships. Each player places their fleet on a grid (squares) that are identified by a number and a letter for coordinates. There are five ships that are placed on the grid and include: the carrier, which is five grid spaces; the battleship that is four; the cruiser that is three; the submarine that is 3; and the destroyer that is two.

Once the players place their ships on the grid each takes turns shooting missiles to sink each other’s fleets. If a ship is hit, you put a peg in it to show that it has been hit. The game goes on until one player sinks all the ships of the other player. 

This summer Amusement Masters will have GIANT BATTLESHIP available in our event entertainment inventory. A super fun game – one that we have all played and that is great if you’re looking for a bit of strategy mixed with a bit of luck. This classic is now larger than life, and is perfect for an indoor or outdoor event where you’re looking to add giant synergy, hours of excitement and lasting memories. Click HERE to connect with our team and find out how to bring Giant Battleship to your next event!

Create A Tougher Team With Team Building Events!

team-building-in-corporate-setting-1-1024x768

When it comes to building a successful company your team is a very important part of the process. That’s why Amusement Masters understands that events with team building activities and games are helpful to any size company. Building strong relationships between both you and your employees is just one way to successfully build a strong team that is going to help your company grow. But an event specific to this focus can often create invaluable work place relationships, and can help your team learn how to work together at the height of efficiency. One way to help decide if the addition of a team building event is right for your company is to understand a bit about what type of events, games and entertainment options are available to you!

Let’s Retreat And Get To Know Each Other
Team building events can be so much more than just gathering to meet over a meal. There are a wide range of things that can help build strong team relationships that are actually super fun – retreats are one such event. Try taking your team away from work for a day (or two) so that they can focus on friendships, learning how they work with others, and getting to know their team mates. And we have lots of games that can be incorporated into a retreat environment…like our Black Ops Obstacle Course that brings out the competitive spirit in every employee. Retreat events offer a great way for employees to relax and recoup – emerging new energized for the work ahead.

Show and Play
Carnival events and family focused events can also be a great team building experience. Allowing your team to bring their family and closest friends together for an experience is just one way that you can help your employees build pride in their work. This type of event also allows your team to have fun and to associate work with fun and happiness rather than the daily grind. We have lots of ‘carnival’ fun activities that can be mix and matched to create the perfect custom event for your company.

Connecting Is Better When We Eat Together
Dinner and luncheon gatherings are still a great way to bring your team together over something that we do every day…eat! They can also be a wonderful precursor to bigger events later on. This type of activity is something that can be pulled off in a few days and that allows you to start honing and creating the relationships that will help your team work together seamlessly. For these types of events we encourage employers to add activities that include a special take-away for those attending – making it a more special event. Adding Green Screen Photos, a Photo Booth or even our onsite Live Screen Printing (custom t-shirts) is a super fun activity that can be company branded adding another layer to engaging with each employee.

Team building events are wonderful investments for companies of any size because each one allows your team the chance to come together, to get to know one another, and to truly start to learn how to work well with one another. They are a great way to engage with employees – and ultimately they help in avoiding employee turnover and having to go through the hiring process again and again. If this seems like something you want to bring to your company then let us help you plan a great team building event! Let’s connect so we can share how Amusement Masters can help to make your company a much more pleasant and productive place to be!
