Team Pursuit

Team Pursuit is a high energy indoor team building activity that has groups working together to complete different types of challenges. Teams will need to play to their strengths and work against the clock as they earn points and climb the live leaderboard as fast as possible.

  • Team Pursuit challenges teams mentally
  • Team Pursuit challenges teams' skills
  • Team Pursuit challenges teams physically

Can your team master all four types of challenges?

Break the ice at your next meeting or conference with a fun, interactive and challenging team building activity that will inject fun and energy into any group. Team Pursuit will have teams working together to solve four different types of challenges – mental, physical, skill and mystery.

Teams will need to interact with each other, break down barriers, think on their feet, and push boundaries to earn points and climb the live leaderboard. In doing so, they get to have fun, get to know everyone participating, and ignite their competitive winning streak.

Categories of challenges

The different categories of challenges suit the unique skills of different team members. Participants can rush through some of the seemingly easy challenges to get warmed up, or choose a category that is more challenging to get a head start on the more difficult questions. The four types of challenges teams complete in Team Pursuit are:

Mental – mind-bending challenges, riddles and clues that test teams' creative, analytical and problem solving skills.

Physical – interactive challenges that get participants moving and using their strength and stamina to compete against others.

Skill – uses teams' cunning and hidden skills to complete challenges that require unique skills, talents and abilities.

Mystery – teams will need to find people in the room who match the description in the challenge as they go on a social scavenger hunt.

The team that can collect the most points will be crowned the Team Pursuit champions. But to win, teams will need to collect points across all types of challenges, as they can only earn so many points in each category.

Event Overview & Features

At the beginning of the activity, your group will be split into teams. You only need one mobile device per team with the ability to download apps via the Google Play or Apple’s App store. In a few simple steps, teams will download the app, and join the activity.

Once the activity starts, participants will need to solve challenges that are categorized as mental, physical, skill or mystery. Each challenge that teams complete will earn them points in the designated category. Point totals are displayed in real time on the live leaderboard where teams jockey for top position.
