We had such an amazing time! I will never forget this event!

Already known for their unique and dynamic cell phone-based urban games in 13 of America’s favorite cities, Stray Boots today announced it has applied the “urban game” concept to group and corporate team-building events. Stay Boots’ urban games for corporations combine scavenger hunt-style puzzles played across an urban landscape to create a new and powerful team-building activity. The games are available initially in New York, San Diego and San Francisco with more cities joining the list in in the months to come.

Memorable, easy to organize and implement for small or large groups, Stray Boots’ urban games turn a city’s streets into a game to foster better group interaction and teamwork. Groups are taken out of the usual team-building environment and given the opportunity to explore a city while working as a team to find clues, solve puzzles and get to know each other.

Stray Boots urban games use mobile phone technology to deliver a unique and engaging team-building experience. Each group divides into teams that compete against each other in an entertaining ”game” that challenges them to work together and “think outside the box.” Teams receive challenges via text message which take them to interesting spots around each neighborhood (no previous knowledge is necessary). As teams work cooperatively to solve each challenge, they earn points and learn fun facts about the area. And since the game is delivered using cell phones, events can be scheduled to meet the needs of the organizer. At the end of the event, each team gets a score based on their success in the challenges to determine the winner.

"We had such an amazing time! I will never forget this event! Of course I will always recommend Stray Boots to anyone who is looking for a really fun event!" said one satisfied Fortune 500 executive about Stay Boot’s corporate events.

Affordable, high impact – and Dubbed a “Game Changer” by Fast Company, Stray Boots offers corporate and group urban games in these cities:

  •     New York City – Corporate teams will learn to work as finely-oiled machines while solving puzzles in Midtown, Wall Street, Greenwich Village, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History and Chinatown.
  •     San Diego – The Gaslamp Quarter and Balboa Park become the “game boards” for increasing cooperation and team efficiency.
  •     San Francisco – The Fisherman’s Wharf game is a 21st Century scavenger hunt which will net teams improved results back in the office. A new urban game in Union Square is coming in December.

Past and current customers include Google, America Express, Accenture, FedEX, Mercedes Benz, Oracle, Johnson & Johnson, Fiat, BASF, Macy’s, Stroock, Kipp, New York University, Columbia University, The Ohio State University, The City University of New York and many more.

“We had an excellent time! We bumped into each other while searching for our answers, which was hilarious. Everyone had a very good time. We will definitely contact Stray Boots for this type of event in the future and we will also be recommending the company when inquiries are made. Thank you for putting this together with such short notice,” said a FedEX executive customer of Stray Boots.

“Too much of what masquerades as ‘team building” activities fall flat because they don’t engage the team in a meaningful way,” said Stray Boots' CEO Avi Millman. “We’ve revolutionized the process of making teams work together by using mobile phone technology to create challenging, involving and actually fun scavenger hunt-style games that improve team cohesion and, more importantly, results. And we do it at a fraction of the cost of the competition.”

To celebrate Stray Boot’s new urban games in San Diego and San Francisco, Stray Boots is offering a 25% discount to the first 25 companies in those cities that book a group urban game before the end of 2011. Please mention the discount code TEAM211 when the tour is booked.
