If you're a fraidy cat, don't worry. No zombies are going to chase you, nothing's going to leap out and say boo. The scariest thing you'll face is some tricky puzzles, and maybe your competition.

What if someone handed you a ball of yarn and asked how long it was? What if they told you you only had five minutes to come up with your answer? What if they told you you couldn't leave the seat you were sitting in? How would you answer the question? To some of you reading, this might sound like a scene from a forgotten Saw movie, but to others, your brain might already be spinning coming up with a creative solution. And that's what our latest offering is all about.
We call it Taskerade, and it's a wild event full of unique challenges and tasks that you'll have to master if you want to succeed. We won't go into too much detail, because the fun is in the surprise, but you can expect to face challenges of all sorts of skills: some physical, some mental, and some that test talents you may not have put to use in a while.
A Great Option for DFW Team Building
Perfect for indoor gatherings, Taskerade is a great way to challenge your team in ways they've never considered. And like all our events, the content is very diverse, making sure every participant gets a chance to contribute, come up with ideas, and be the star!
Almost all challenges leave room for interpretation, and creativity is crucial. And so is teamwork. You'll need to work together, in harmony if possible, to solve a lot of these tasks, and that means playing well with others. If you're looking for team building in Dallas, Taskerade is a fantastic option. We love our scavenger hunts, but we also love coming up with new events for people, and this is one we're really proud of.
And it's not just Dallas! We can bring Taskerade to you, too. If you've got a room big enough for everyone to move around a bit, that's ideal, whether it's a conference room at your offices, or a private dining space at a restaurant. We can make it work -- it's only fair that we figure out a few of the mysteries for you. If you're planning an event in Frisco, Plano, Grapevine, Fort Worth, or anywhere in DFW, give us a holler.
Looking for a Unique Birthday Party in Dallas?
Taskerade is a great choice for a unique DFW birthday party, too! One of the things we like best about this event is our ability to customize, so we can craft games that pay tribute to the guest of honor in surprising ways. Or if you're throwing a bash for your coworkers, we can easily incorporate your organization's themes, mission statements, and inside jokes.
All right, if you've read this far, it's only fair we give you a few hints at what sort of games you might face. So ask yourself: could you, blindfolded, identify items just by smell? How would you build the tallest tower using only items from your desk? Can you toss a teabag into a mug from across the room? How fast can you name 10 kinds of birds? What if you have to do it while balancing a baguette in your hand? While not blinking? The possibilities are endless, and so are the points you can earn if you do well. Ready to book? Get in touch now to find out how!
