SAN FRANCISCO GAME SHOWS FOR PRIVATE PARTIES

FAMILY OR COMPANY INTERACTION EVENTS


We lead the way for private party entertainment with our San Francisco Game Shows. These shows are designed to entertain employees of companies, families and friends for their special occasions. Your attendees have a lot of fun while getting to know each other better. It's a great way to overcome the distance and time of modern relationships in The City by the Bay.


Each show is individualized with elements adjusted based on the needs of the audience. While we tend to be squeaky clean, this includes shifting from ratings of G through NC-17 depending on your desire. Officially we remain one-level cleaner than the audience, but our rating tends to be wholly audience driven. We utilize your members as the participants so we can't control their reactions on stage.

POPULAR TV-BASED GAME SHOWS

LET US ENTERTAIN YOUR PRIVATE PARTIES IN SAN FRANCISCO

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.

game shows

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.


Our San Francisco game shows can engage people in friendly competition and help create a wholesome environment for family fun. With a variety of non-traditional private party game shows available, we have a range of options to get people playing together.

mix and mingle murder mystery

Murder Mystery Mayhem

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.

trivia game show

Trivia is Not Trivial

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).

audience olympiad

Audience Olympiad

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.

getting to know you

Getting to Know You

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).

talent

So You've Got Talent

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.

deal

Let's Deal

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.


Most private party San Francisco Game Shows are provided as a low-tech adventure for the audience members to increase the flexibility of performance. Additional set elements, equipment, scoreboards, etc. are available at an increased cost. Besides the host, a Vanna is available at an increased fee, and is recommended for shows with larger audiences. Travel costs are included in any quote if needed.


Depending on the size of the audience, you would likely want to have a stand microphone with appropriate speakers. Another microphone to be used by audience members playing the game shows is likely important. As this show is often in a banquet room, it is all the more important that people spread out throughout the room can all hear the show. Of course if you have a more intimate group, sometimes it's better to have no technical assistance to have a more natural and intimate show. Keep in mind that this technical choice is yours and you take responsibility for the sound in the room.


Shows come in ranges of 30, 45, 60, and 90 minutes. Prices range due to the level of customization, so you should contact us for a quote. These can be stand-alone events or can be added to other events that you are holding, enhancing any themed gathering. We can event provide games on the golf course!

Understanding the great people in the city by the bay is key to providing customized entertainment in the area. Knowing the differences between Nob Hill and Union Square helps to tailor gatherings to the audience and helps to ensure that a San Francisco corporate event, banquet or private party will prove successful. The large financial district and work ethic lead to people wanting to have a good time and to blow off steam. Getting teams to work together requires a company that can anticipate your needs and develop programs that will be tailored to your goals. Find out more about our team building workshops, scavenger hunts and mini-Olympiads. The city is obviously the focus of a lot of attention from around the world. With the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown and so many other universally treasured landmarks, having a company gathering in the shadow of such icons is a great way to take your conference to the next level.

coronavirus

We are happy to provide these in downtown in Chinatown, Civic Center, Filmore District, Financial District, Fisherman's Wharf, Nob Hill, the Presidio, and Union Square as well as Fremont, Half Moon Bay, Hayward, Livermore, Menlo Park, Oakland, Pleasanton, the Portola Valley, Redmond, Richmond, SFO, South San Francisco, San Mateo, and Woodside, or anywhere else.

food venue

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.

WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW

1

WHAT IS THE REASON?

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.

2

WHAT ARE THE DETAILS? WHERE? WHEN? HOW MANY?

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.

3

DO YOU HAVE A BUDGET?

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.
