We provide a variety of entertainment options with game shows in Chicago for companies or private parties to help families and friends bond and laugh together. A perfect accent to any celebration to enjoy family time together or to get employees to bond for a corporate event.
Loosely based on television's popular Family Feud, the Feud has competitors competing to come up with complete lists from surveys. We can provide specific Feuds based on holidays and other topics.
We pair contestants to prove that they know more about each other than the other pairs. Audience members serve as the judges and the whole group enjoys the bizarre and fun ways to show incorrect answers.
We pit two contestants against one another trying to match answers with a panel of six friends and family. Others serve as judges with group fun at incorrect answers.
Loosely based on television's popular Minute To Win It or Beat the Clock, our Timed Tirades pit contestants against each other in big goofy activities.
This is a custom-built murder mystery party for your group with our professional facilitating the evening and making sure that everyone has a good time. With our emcee watching over your group, the attendees are pitted against one of their own, a murderer, who works to get away with murder! If someone solves the crime, the murderer is found and the super sleuth gets a prize. If the murderer gets away with it, he or she gets the prize instead! Additionally, a prize is given to the best actor/actress in your group. A great game for smaller groups (15-40) that are looking for unique entertainment.
Designed for larger groups, the audience is divided into teams, usually by table. The teams are provided with the upcoming categories of questions. They talk amongst themselves and determine their confidence for each category. Then, as questions are asked, the teams compete against each other to win a trivia quiz without the benefit of technology. This bonds team mates, has friendly competition and can be done throughout a meal leading to a more lengthy shows. While most are 30-45 minutes, this can run for 90 minutes or so. A great game for slightly larger groups (50-150 or more).
For larger groups one of the potential issues is a small percentage of the group participating in the activities. For this, we developed the Audience Olympiad. This is designed to divide the audience into teams and for the teams to determine within their group who will participate in each activity with scores being aggregated together for a total result rather than game by game. Everyone on the team wins prizes whether or not they physically participated or not. This means that they're more likely to cheer their team on to victory. This is the only game show that we generally do not provide the prizes as the teams can get quite large. We can bring the prizes for a negotiated charge.
Designed as a way for families that have grown apart to overcome the distance and time, the audience is divided into several groups. Each group is provided with a period of time to talk to each other. They are expected to learn pertinent details about each other and to get to know each others' personality. One person from each group is brought up in front of the audience. They are each provided with a white board to write answers. The person from each group is asked questions about themselves for their group to answer. It is a great way for people to get to know each other better and learn things about one another. A great game for slightly larger groups (70-150).
We have a variety of formats designed to bring out the unsung talent of your group. Whether singing, dancing, acting, comedy, writing, skills of dexterity or human oddities, there's a format to push the boundaries and to get your coworkers, friends or family to bond as never before. Our facilitators can assist or simply provide the framework for your people to become stars. There are versions for just about any sized group (10-150) or for smaller groups (10-30) to perform in front of major audiences ranging in size into the many 100s.
For larger groups, maintaining the interest of the audience can be key. Similar to the Let's Make a Deal TV show, our Let's Deal, our Emcees wander the audience challenging audience members to trade options to win a variety of prizes. The big winners from the audience are then brought on stage to make deals with one another or to trade for potential larger prizes. This is also a fun way to run a White Elephant event or other gift exchanges. Prices vary wildly based on whether we're providing the prizes and the expense involved with the prizes. Likewise, for larger audiences we might provide camera crews and projection for an additional fee.
TRUTH BE TOLD In a game show designed to get people to know each other better, we interview each of 6 contestants that will be on two teams. We will want to get a feel for their personalities and learn one thing that they have done that no one attending is particularly familiar with. The six are divided into two teams. One person will be asked to make a statement that we provide them. It will either be true, the thing they told us about them, or a lie, something that we came up with that might match something their personality might actually do. The other team asks questions trying to determine if the statement was the truth or the lie. Each player goes through this process and the team with the most points wins!

WE COME TO YOU!
We come to a venue of your choosing and this allows you to make your own food and beverage options. In general, you want enough light to see, enough space to move around comfortably, and it should be quiet enough to hear. Everything else can be adjusted to.
The first step is to determine your needs. This includes potential goals, desires and concerns. Is it more than just entertainment? If you are looking to show appreciation to clients or employees, for example, then we would take one approach. If it is family and friends, we might approach it differently. The more we know about what has already been decided can allow us to narrow the conversation to approaches that interest you.
We need to know the type of venue you will have and where it will be in the area. A date, or date range, for when you would like to have this and what time frame you are looking for will help to determine our commitment and availability. Knowing the size of your group, though that will likely just be an estimate, will allow us to choose appropriate options for the performance and have a better feel for the resources required.
If you know budget limitations, that can allow us to restrict the conversations to those options that will be within your financial constraints. This works in both directions. We don't want to overbuild and propose options that can't be done. Also, we don't want to not provide a large enough of a show to achieve the results that will exceed your expectations.
